Faster Than A Speeding Bullet - The New MAN OF STEEL Teaser Poster Flies In From Comic-Con!!

The Kidd here...

The Warner Bros. panel just ended moments ago, and you'll have to hold onto your butts for Quint's full report, which contains both looks at the MAN OF STEEL teaser, which Zack Snyder confirmed would be attached to prints of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES next week, and everything Peter Jackson brought from THE HOBBIT...

But, in the meantime, courtesy of the MAN OF STEEL's Facebook Page, we've got your look at the new MAN OF STEEL teaser poster, which was revealed at the end of the panel...

There's the suit... there's the darker tone...

What do you think?

    Darker tone?

    by dp4m

    Why does Superman, of all things, need a darker tone? In a setting (like, say, Kingdom Come) as a one-off genre thing, sure -- more power to you. But, as a stand-alone thing?

    by rumpledforeskin

    I believe Alex Ross has painted a Kingdom Come picture similar to this pose. Too much texture as usual. Why Hollywood? My eyes wont explode or burst if a supersuit is somewhere between this and the Reeve suit.

    Sorry, but that poster sucks.

    by Nichole

    Please for the love of God, buy the Drew Struzan book Oeuvre. I can't take posters like this seriously after owning that amazing book. I hope the movie is good, and erases Superman Returns from my mind. Really disliked that film.

    What's so funny about truth and justice?

    by Zurge

    Why wouldn't Superman be bummed out. Look around you man, things are getting messed up out there. Sure, we could have sugar coated him to sell toys, but that's not what Superman is. Superman is the social crusader. Even Grant Morrison brought that aspect back in Action Comics new 52. His first appearances were about taking down wife-beaters, evil landlords, thugs, gangs. And yeah, would it make sense for him to be a happy Superman given his alter ego is a Journalist? A Journalist in this Internet world where people can no longer ignore evil one click away? The Captain America Film had the awesome darker visual tone, he was a bit gritty, and it worked. Cap was only "gee-golly" during the montage being used as a propaganda tool. Yeah, I like this, can't wait for the teaser next week. GO DC! GO Marvel! Go Image! Comics rule.

  • July 14, 2012, 7:18 p.m. CST

    The suit.

  • July 14, 2012, 7:20 p.m. CST

    @ rumpledforeskin:

    by Chris Moody

    I think that they chose this close up of the suit to show: A.) It is NOT related to either the original SUPERMAN films from the 70s/80s or the gay continuation a few years ago. and B.) The suit actually plays a part in the film. After all, Russell Crowe is wearing a suit with the insignia as well. I think that it is supposed to be "Kryptonian" in nature...hence the reason it is impervious to damage.

    @wildcard_comics

    by dp4m

    Okay -- if they mean "like the Captain America film" for "darker tone" (since Cap was still pretty close to Rocketeer-zone -- not a diss from me)... that's cool. I'd look forward to that. If, by "darker tone" they mean "Frank Miller / Alan Moore Batman" (a superhero for whom that kind of darker tone makes sense, in my opinion)... well, we may agree to disagree there.

  • July 14, 2012, 7:25 p.m. CST

    Darker tone probably because the world is a dark place?

    by Judge Briggs

    Some crazy shit happens in the world ... some evil fucks out there doing things to humanity ... so why not depict Superman fighting such realistic elements in the world? I'd love to see Superman swoop in and take care of North Korea ... or some of the monsters that plague African and the Middle East. I am looking forward to this movie!

    looks promising

    by Matthew

    you know it will be nothing but action and fighting hopefully like dawn of the dead 2004 and 300, the cast is pretty solid, wonder how much Zack Snyder slow motion camera style will be used? the movie could be weak on story or whatever but you know it will be the opposite of Returns which had a lack of fighting

    by AidanJames

    Is it the comic-book purist thing of "OMG It's not exactly like it was in 1940!!!?" Or is it the no underwear thing? (Which I think is about fifty years too goddamn late but at least it's done.) Or what?

    Let's hear it for change!

    by Paulisius

    I'm so excited to see the new textured suit. It has a sense of mail. The last seventy years have seen a great deal of very small changes to the suit, and it all comes back to the early twentieth century circus strong man look. I, for one am glad to see something "regal" and strong, and yet durable in the face of combat. It's very important to retain the regal quality. He is the Last Son of an advanced world, after all. What's more is the removal of those always troublesome red bottoms. They've been a source of giggle's for decades. No one admits it, but it is true. As a long time fan of Supes, I appreciate every incarnation of the hero. I even have a little love for the "Electric Superman." (short lived, and thankful for it) I appreciate him because he represents change. He is not, as some on this forum will certainly argue a cut-in-stone traditional, by-the-book, boy scout. He's dynamic. The symbol design is dynamic. The suit is dynamic. And his very motives become a welcome grey area. Ethics are in continual question. The foe's are in many ways worse than they ever have been. The ability to retain a strong ethical purpose is a silent struggle in Kal-El. So, with this in mind, remember that one's loyalty should never depend on the outfit. And a movie seen by no one should never be given it's due. Now, let's hear it from the haters. Those oft reviled, relentless, uninformed, willfully ignorant, joyless assholes that simply need to provoke. Whom are without any enrichment or joyful memory. Do your worst. -A

    http://collider.com/wp-content/uploads/superman-man-of-steel-set-photo-costume-henry-cavill-01-371x600.jpg from Collider, who also have detailed Hobbit reports up

  • ... but there seems to be a handheld approach for the Smallville stuff, but for the most part, it looks like standard hero’s journey stuff. Kal-El has to wrestle with hiding his identity, he’s worried that the world will fear him, and he has to learn to become a hero. There’s no levity, joy, or even a sense of triumph. It’s more of a gritty, realistic take about how would Superman actually deal with the world and how the world will deal with him.

    by deanbarry

    I don't like what you're wearing either!!! Fashion police are everywhere. I remember seeing the first pics of the Spider-Man suit, very similar in texture. In photos it looked like arse. But in the flick...moving...you didn't even notice. Same will happen here. The dude is faster than a speeding bullet for god sake. You won't even SEE the suit!

    by adeceasedfan

  • No one was expecting spandex or anything like that. If the trunks are unnecessary, so is the cape and certainly the wierd piping and the gauntlets added this time. I'm aware the gauntlets are there, cause they keep together Jor-El's robe, while he uses the suit in Krypton.

    Photoshop, phantomcreeps?

    by D.Vader

    That seems a weird accusation to make, especially since photoshop is what usually makes the REAL posters that go around nowadays, lots of floating heads and actors who aren't standing next to each other on the day of the photo shoot. At a convention designed to get people excited for movies, I don't get how a teaser poster meant to do exactly that is bullshit. Every now and then you get a great teaser poster. I think the teasers for the LOTR trilogy were great (and the teaser for ROTK was a good callback to that). Usually teasers are just a logo, maybe some dramatic lighting, something to tell you "THIS IS COMING". I think this does a serviceable job in that respect.

  • July 14, 2012, 8:06 p.m. CST

    The costume works and so does the dark tone...

    by HyperKnight23

    It's Superman's Kryptonian armor and it shouldn't look like spandex or anything else on Earth. As for the darker tone, I believe it works for this movie. Clark's Smallville years aren't supposed to be entirely all happy and wholesome. It's when he's dealing with discovering he's adopted, from another planet (aka NOT HUMAN), having amazing powers that may accidentally kill someone if he's not careful. Does that sound like it's supposed to be a cheerful time? This movie is about him dealing with all that to finally become the Superman we all know. I believe the sequel to this would be brighter as he becomes more comfortable with being Superman.

  • July 14, 2012, 8:08 p.m. CST

    Ummmm......

    by sundancekeed

    I guess maybe I'm a purist on this one. Superman was always a primary colors kind of guy. Red. Blue. Yellow. I thought the costume in Superman Returns was lame. His cape was sort of burgundy. Looked like he washed his suit with a new brown towel that bled all over it. I actually like the design of the MOS suit. Except for the colors. Why does everything have to be black or muted colors now on superheroes? If I want reality, I'll watch the news. I get it with Batman. And it makes sense. But why dull up Superman?

    ArtDentus...

    by micturatingbenjamin

    What a well thought out comment on the suit. But you're wrong, here, I think. Superman is: Faster than a Speeding Bullet. More Powerful Than A Locomotive. Can Bend Steel In His Bare Hands. And since the 40s? Bulletproof. Which means, this suit is just dumb. Even the current Superman -- in the comics, which are interesting since he's lower powered-- is bulletproof. A metal suit is just stupid. A chainmail suit for a bulletproof guy seems redundant. You do not need a special suit to make a Superman movie. You can seriously just put a guy in the normal underpants-outside-the bigboy pants suit like George Reeves or Christopher Reeve (BUT NOT THE MANTIES wearing leather cape bullshit from Returns), and everyone will be on board. Making it darker -- meh. That's where we are. If there's an arc, where he ends up being the big blue boy scout -- killer. This teaser though, says 'This ain't your pappy's Superman, kiddies!'. Which is just irksome. That said, I trust Snyder to make an entertaining flick. I'll wait for the teaser trailer. :) I still think you're wrong. The suit is dumb. MB

And, of course, the gay Superman film from a few years ago just sucked. It tooks itself wayyyy too seriously (other than a couple of action sequences).

    Very cool

    by Pipple

    I hope this movie's good. I mean, you either loved or hated what Singer did to superman, but you have to admit he kinda had a huge mountain to climb in challenging to surpass STM. FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE. And he did 'ok' but really stealing half that movie's script was retarded. Very intrigued to see this as I've been reading superman comics since I was a little boy and well I KNOW he can be very interesting beyond what Donner etc accomplished. Have him have a massive city wide fight for starters, kinda like that shit in chronicle. Other than that, I always found the aesthetic value of superman's world fascinating because he was all over the place, all over the universe, never just metropolis. And sometimes he'd be a robot. Or simple stuff like how he'd be so cool and chilled out like a regular dude despite having the powers he has. Lois and Clark tv show got that part so right, sucked that they fucked up superman on that show. Yup... *burp*

    by mister death

    Rubber Made Man! Just push the top in and ...burp! It's sealed fresh! I've never seen much point in out doing Richard Donner's Superman origin story. They nailed it back in 1978. Then having Superman Returns in 2006 turned dopey with the wrong tone, wrong script and what appears as a wrong choice for Superman. Yes, go back to the planet Krypton that makes you sick in a little brick size of it but doesn't if there house sized boulders floating in space? Picky I know but at least make the shit make it's own logic work. I have no faith in this yet another try if they show strange costume shots and think they are fooling everyone. If a period correct 1940 live action version was made it would be something we only saw in a Max Fleischer's animated version.

    I really, really dig the suit

    by Bass Ackwards

    I know I'm in the minority, but I actually really really like the suit. And I'm not talking about the texture, which is a non-issue for me, I could careless if the suit has texture or not. But the colors, design, someone FINALLY elimiating the underoos, and how Cavill looks in it all click for me. For me, it totally works. Just throwing it out there to have a positive response in what seems mostly negative/neutral. The design that bothers me are the villain costumes. Just plain black. Again. How many times do we have to see villains costumed in boring black? And I don't need to see something crazy. Just anything but black would be more interesting. A deep brown, grey, maroon, even white. Just something that says you're trying.

    So the world hasn't been dark before today?

    by dukeroberts

    The world has always had death and misery, but Superman was still bright and optimistic. And the reason Supes fought evil landlords and wifebeaters when he was created is that they didn't have the vision of Superman that we have now. He was not the invincible hero who could fly through space and move planets out of their orbits and such. He wasn't nearly as powerful as he has come to be known. He also worked for The Daily Star, and I think he may have actually been in Cleveland in Action Comics #1. The original Superman is different than the one that most people are familiar with. Why fuck that up? And why fuck with his iconic costume? I can think of no good reason.

    That's the problem with all those superhero movies: OVERDESIGN! They always lose track of what the costume is supposed to be, where it came from, what it projects. This design projects "pompous ass", when it should project "humble god"... It's a damn shame...

  • because it's obvious they spent some time in a sport's science facility getting consultations about the latest in sports technology fabric and the benefits of rubber meshing.

    i like the chain mail texture

    by chronicallydepressedlemming

    It makes it look like armour, but made out of an unknown (alien) material. perhaps it's a hint of what Superman was intended to be for Krypton? More of a soldier?

  • It's all kinds of ridiculous, that Lara and Jor-El would send an adult-sized Kryptonian suit with their baby. Just like it's silly that the House of El heraldic badge resembles the "S" from the latin alphabet (yet another idea taken from S:TM, not the comics).

    The Suit

    by Curtis

    It is of Kryptonian origin, and the texture is mimicking chain mail. If you look at the large version of the poster you can see the detail. I do have a theory that it is a gift from Jor-El and will probably be destroyed in the film leading to a suit closer to the New 52 version.

    Here is what kills me...

    by maxjohnson1971

    Every era of film reflects what was going on in the world at the time it was made. Perhaps not in staggering, obvious ways, but they do. Everyone on here keeps harping about how charming and innocent the first two movies were, and that's fine. But 2012 is a LOT different than 1978. I can actually remember reviews from 78 saying that the first Superman movie made people glad and proud to be Americans again after all the shit that had gone down in the previous few years. And it did!!! God knows Carter and all the gas crisis shit wasn't helping, so a cheerful, happy Superman defeats evil film DID hit at just the right time. Perhaps the state of the world now needs a more introspective and deeper Superman to raise our spirits a bit as well. With all the socialism pushing it's way into our country now and all the facists and religious zealots around the rest of the world trying to take over, how fucking happy can Superman be? Let's all just chill and see how the movie comes out. If it sucks, most of us will agree. It it is great, most of us will agree. If it is middle of the road, about fifty percent of us will agree. No harm, no foul. Chill folks.

    The reason the suit looks the way it does is this

    by CimmerianWarrior

    The lawsuit between the studio and the creator's estate stated that the family owns certain parts of Superman. One part is the red underwear. That is why you won't ever see it in the movies again. WB does NOT fully own the character, mostly, but not fully.

  • July 16, 2012, 1:45 p.m. CST

    And you know what would help?

    by Darth Macchio

    Have Supes have a more regular suit that gets screwed up in a fight and he has to get something better to withstand some wear and tear. That's a half-assed quasi-Nolan approach to "reality-ize" the reason for wearing such a highly textured suit. If it's just like that from the beginning and not actually made on Kryption by Kryptionians, I think the suit will be ass. It won't matter to the product of course - just nitpicky nonsense...but it's odd how we get brilliant designs (Raimi spiderman) and what I would call bad designs (Man of Steel, Superman Returns, Amazing Spiderman). Again , not trying to hate at all here..it definitely does not make a whole lot of difference and would be more "perfunctory" to make it exactly like the most recent comic or older movie versions. But then again - why such a radical change and why so rubber-y looking? It's too baroque...too ugly pearl... Damn...I have become a hater haven't I?
