Man of Steel: Henry Cavill is in Handcuffs in New Superman Poster

A new poster for Man of Steel, the new installment of the Superman movie series set to debut on June 14, 2013, has been 'unlocked' by Warner Bros. Pictures to commemorate the DVD/Blu Ray release of the Dark Knight Rises (and ahead of the release of a new Man of Steel trailer set to debut along The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December 14) — reported Cinema Blend.    

And it looks as though Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan, who is the producer of Man of Steel, has influenced the new Superman film's newest poster which shows Henry Cavill in handcuffs and being escorted by soldiers like a villain as opposed to a hero (the same treatment Batman received in The Dark Knight).   


Expect to know more when the new Man of Steel trailer is released on December 14 along with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Though the first trailers for the new Superman movie were debuted over the summer, fans of the franchise will be treated to the new one -- previously showed during the film's Comic Con footage — where Superman gets arrested (with handcuffs presumably made out of kryptonite).
