In case seeing “Man of Steel” in theaters isn’t good enough, fans now will have the opportunity to look at the upcoming Warner Bros. movie all year long. Some promotional images of the new “Man of Steel” wall calendar have arrived, replete with brand new stills from the new movie.
The shots are fairly spoiler-free but it’s still nice to have all these images in front of us in one place so that we can get a sense of what “Man of Steel” will look like. Everything that has been released thus far has led us to believe that Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero film will look gorgeous, and these calendar images leave us with the same impression. You can check out a couple of them below, and be sure to head over to Comic Book Movie for the rest.
During a recent conversation with Empire magazine’s podcast, screenwriter David Goyer opened up about why this new Superman movie isn’t called “Superman.”
“That was [producer] Chris [Nolan] and I. [We called it] ’Man Of Steel’ and Warner Bros. said, ’Why?’ And we started talking about it, and we said, ’We want a line of demarcation in the sand between the old and the new,'” he said. “We always knew we would be using the Superman glyph, or the shield as we call it. But Man Of Steel was also supposed to represent our take, which was he’s a man, but he’s not made of flesh and blood, metaphorically he’s a man of steel. So that was sort of like the whole thing wrapped up in a nutshell.”
