First Look: Superman

This is the world's first look at the new Superman as portrayed by Henry Cavill in the 2013 release of Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel.

I made it last week. And in what seemed like a record turn-around for a big studio, it was released this week. The image is pretty clean, un-cropped, with very little photoshop work (done elsewhere). Zack and I sat together as we gave some final love to the image using Lightroom. Big kudos to Amir Mokri, our film's Director of Photography, for lighting the scene. He makes my job easy.

With this image it should be noted that my already lackluster blogging efforts will be further curtailed by studio-imposed secrecy restrictions and the normal all-consuming "dark tunnel" that is modern filmmaking.
