Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel gets a moody Comic-Con poster

Man Of Steel , Zack Snyder's new take on Superman, was one of the big guns at this year's Comic-Con , and it brought with it a first poster.

It's a moody affair, with the focus aimed squarely at Supes' considerable chest. Henry Cavill's face is in there, but the shadow-play that's going on makes it hard to identify him, and it gives him one glowing white eye.

In close up, the suit has a chainmail vibe, possessing more texture than most superhero threads.

And, purely in terms of lighting, this is a darker take on DC's golden boy. Being a teaser poster, we'd imagine this reflects the approach of the new film.

Check out the poster in full below:



And those of you desperate for a first glimpse at Man Of Steel footage will only have to wait until 20 July 2012, as Snyder confirmed that a teaser will premiere with The Dark Knight Rises . We're guessing that quite a few of you will be going to see that one anyway. Just a hunch.

Man Of Steel opens on 14 June 2013.
