Is That Ryan Reynolds? Who Did His Hair, Vidal Sassoon?So, the cameras have started rolling on Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" and to beat the shitty, crappy cell phone camera snaps of obsessive nerds from revealing the "first look" at Supes, Warner Bros. ha (mostly) beaten everyone to the punch by releasing the first still of Henry Cavill in tights and in action.

Is That Ryan Reynolds? Who Did His Hair, Vidal Sassoon?



So, the cameras have started rolling on Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" and to beat the shitty, crappy cell phone camera snaps of obsessive nerds from revealing the "first look" at Supes, Warner Bros. ha (mostly) beaten everyone to the punch by releasing the first still of Henry Cavill in tights and in action. And, yeah, we're going to need more convincing.

Our sub-headline pretty much says it all -- Clark Kent looks a bit odd. We're not sure what's going on his helmet head of hair which looks stolen from Nic Cage's wig wardrobe, and the overall look has the kind of aesthetic that Zack Snyder made his name on with "300." A kind of hyper realistic, kind of phony looking set design that will either work in creating a very comic book-like feel, or fail miserably in painting a sterile, lifeless environment (please see "Watchmen" for evidence of that). Yeah, we'll just go back to those Pittsburgh "The Dark Knight Rises" set photos taken from ten blocks away which still have more life in them than this.

But before we take this too far, let's just remember: this is one picture from a film that is two years away from hitting screens. But that said, first impressions do mean something. Anyway, Snyder has a helluva cast to work with so hopefully they'll be kicking things up a notch. Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Julia Ormond Harry Lennix, Christopher Meloni and Laurence Fishburne co-star in the flick that hits on June 14, 2013.
