A number of images have been snapped from the set of Zack Snyder’s upcoming ‘Superman: Man Of Steel,’ providing us with a closer look at Henry Cavill in his Superman costume – which for much of the images is cape-less, presumably to make it easier to film a fight sequence. I’d imagine the cape would be digitally added in post-production. ‘Superman: Man Of Steel’ also stars Amy Adams as the plucky journalist Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora, Russell Crowe as Superman’s biological father Jor-El, Laurence Fishburn as Perry White, Kevin Costner as Superman/Clarke’s adoptive father Jonathan Kent, and Diane Lane, who plays his wife Martha. Written by David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan, the film is set for release June 14th, 2013. Check out the images and the rumoured brief synopsis for the film below.

“In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.”
