'Superman in shackles!?' You cry. Yes: it's Superman wearing cuffs surrounded by soldiers. All you comic book aficionados will be screaming out, saying the unless those cuffs are made of Kryptonite (and they're clearly not, as SM isn't writhing about in pain) then there's no chance he's in chains. 

Well perhaps the man of steel is perpetrating a ruse? Allowing himself to be captured only to release himself in a moment of glory. Now this is the power of a movie poster, it's got us guessing in anticipation of the latest addition to a growing list of excellent superhero films. And like many of the recent superhero flicks, the leads have enjoyed a deeper characterization than those of the 70's and 80's. "It's a more serious version of Superman," explained director Zack Snyder. "We took the mythology seriously. We take him as a character seriously. I believe the movie would appeal to anyone. I think that you're going to see a Superman you've never seen before. We approached it as though no other films had been made."

Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe and Amy Adams is out in the summer of 2013, on June 14th in both the America and the United Kingdom. Building on the success of The Dark Knight triology, Superman's latest cinematic outing could herald the comic book watchword for the next few years, should this one be a hit.
