Warner Bros. has released the third poster for director Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel, this time showcasing “The Man of Tomorrow” in flight.  The first Comic-Con poster teased the new costume, the second poster showed Henry Cavill’s Superman in cuffs, and now this third one-sheet teases the superhero’s power of flight.  It’s a nice poster, but Cavill looks a little too touched up.  Snyder previously said he wanted the flying scenes to be a “violent experience,” and the blurriness of the skyline in the distance on this poster promises some very quick speeds.

The film also stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, and Russell Crowe.  Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.


Official synopsis for Man of Steel:

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.
