Latest Man of Steel Set Photos Reveal a Scruffy Henry Cavill as Clark Kent
10.07.11 by Ryan
The Vancouver set of the upcoming Superman franchise reboot, Man of Steel, is proving to be a fertile opportunity for "spy" photos. Earlier this week, Russell Crowe stepped outside the studio to smoke a cigarette and was caught in full costume as Jor-El, Superman's biological father.
The latest set photos depict a bearded and shoeless Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) looking much like a homeless man on the Canadian set, which is doubling for Alaska in the movie. Reportedly, Man of Steel finds Superman wandering the globe and trying to find himself and understand his powers, though an official synopsis has yet to be released by Warner Bros. Should the storyline be true, it would explain Cavill's hobo-like appearance. Of course Cavill will also suit up as Superman, as revealed in the movie's first official photo.
Set photos of Amy Adams dressed as Lois Lane on the Vancouver set have also surfaced via The Daily Mail, though the sole revelation of the photos is that Adams will be keeping her red hair, unlike previous actresses who have played the part.
Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Sucker Punch) is directing Man of Steel, which was conceived by screenwriter David Goyer and producer Christopher Nolan. The cast includes Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Superman's adoptive parents Jonathan and Martha Kent, respectively; Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet Editor-in-Chief Perry White; Ayelet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van, Superman's biological mother; Michael Shannon as Zod; and Antje Traue as Faora.
