The excitement for the Zack Snyder-directed and Christopher Nolan-produced "Man of Steel" continues to build, as Warner Bros. has steadily released some new promotional materials these last few weeks. Today, two new Empire magazine covers showing Henry Cavill as Superman and Michael Shannon as General Zod have been released.
The covers are great and truly present the opponents as worthy of each other. Every performance I've ever witnessed Shannon in, from HBO's "Boardwalk Empire", to the lesser known indie "Take Shelter", he absolutely steals the screen with passion and conviction.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the Superman that Cavill brings to life. He looks like he's going to bring the strength yet vulnerability to the role, of a man trying to find his place in the world. Hopefully he's the Man of Steel we've all been waiting for.
You can also check out two new posters, featuring Superman.
