Earlier today DC posted a preview to a bonus digital comic written by David Goyer being offered with pre-orders of the Man of Steel Blu-Ray combo pack. Seems a bit early given the movie isn’t even out yet. And perhaps it was because the preview has been pulled from the DC Comics site.
But not before the comic pages were downloaded! The comic was drawn by long time Superman artist Jerry Ordway. And there’s a very familiar character appearing in the first few pages.
And it’s not that guy.
There’s quite a few kids’ early readers out tied into the Man of Steel movie including Man of Steel: Superman’s Powers. This book not only talks about Superman’s powers it also says how he gets his name.
Here’s a look Amy Adams/Lois Lane and click for the reveal.
The WB shop has debuted lots of new t-shirts this morning for Man of Steel featuring Superman, his logo, and his villain (no Lois though). I thought one of the Zod shirts was interesting. A few months ago Michael Shannon had revealed he did not say the famous “Kneel Before Zod” line in the movie. And that may be true. But this shirt suggests that he might.
Here’s a look at some of the other oodles of shirts now available:
I don’t know why this one couldn’t have had Lois.
But it’s nice they have few shirts for the ladeez!
Ah well, I’ll have to make my own Lois and Superman one.
I’ve been fairly critical of the trailers for Man of Steel but the one that debuted last night was galaxies better than the last two. Also Lois Lane.
But what about you? Did the trailer sell the movie for you?
Also what was your favorite part of the trailer? The interview at the end was definitely mine.
Earlier this week I bemoaned the lack of viral activity for Man of Steel given the movie’s opening was just two months away. Today, concurrent with the movie landing on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, it appears the next campaign has kicked off on the Man of Steel site. Visitors are shown a video feed filled with video and audio static.
What does it mean? It probably means the debut of the third trailer is very soon!
Entertainment Weekly has Henry Cavil as Superman on the cover this week and inside is a big story on Man of Steel including some new pictures of Amy Adams as Lois Lane and some insight into the character and some information on the relationship of Lois and Superman.
Spoilers (no really) follow
Earlier this week the UK magazine Total Film was released with a cover photo of Adams and Cavill. And later in the week the German magazine Cinema also came out with new publicity photos; here’s a look.
The May issue of TotalFilm seems to feature a new publicity picture of Henry Cavill and Amy Adams as Superman and Lois Lane from the upcoming Warner Bros. film Man of Steel. The cover was posted to Divine Intervention, a Lois and Clark fan site.
Is it real? It sure looks it. The costumes are correct and the number on the issue is correct as well.
I’m trying to confirm now. I’ve got another shot of the cover from someone else so it’s legit.
What do you think?
The film Man of Steel is out in June but we now have some new looks at Henry Clavill in the role thanks to children’s books adapted from the movie. There is one slightly maybe spoilerish title. Also absolutely no Lois Lane.
