New 'Man Of Steel' Poster Paints Superman As The Villain

The fact that Christopher Nolan helped craft the story for Man of Steel has never been more evident than in the latest poster, just revealed on Facebook. His Dark Knight films famously turned Batman into a public villain and it seems Zack Snyder's Superman film, scheduled for release June 14, could do the same. The poster features the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) in handcuffs, accompanied by soliders. Check it out below.

Thanks to Facebook for this image, which is the reveal for that Dark Knight Rises clock that was running the past few weeks.

The image of Superman as a bad guy certainly sends a message about what this film is going to feature. Expect to see this scene in the new trailer (attached to The Hobbit), as it was in the footage shown at Comic-Con in July. What are you thoughts on the poster?

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.
