No sooner is one highly anticipated poster out, then another one comes along! This is for the reboot of the Superman franchise, staring Henry Cavill as Superman and Michael Shannon as General Zod.
Looks like they’re another franchise taking influence from the Nolan trilogy of Batman films, as the teaser trailer and this poster both seem to confirm a darker, grittier version of Superman. Whether or not this proves to be the case we shall have to wait and see. A lot is riding on the success of this film, with a projected DC movie universe similar to that of Marvel already in discussion. With the success of group film The Avengers, the often rumoured JLA film might be a possibility. Of course, it would have to involve rebooting the Batman franchise and the Wonder Woman movie would have to be rescued from development hell (where it’s languished for fifteen years) but a shared DCU is a likliehood – providing Man of Steel, out next year, is a success.
