First Pic of The Man of Steel

Above is the first official promotional picture from Zack Snyder’s The Man of Steel. Uh, what is going on here?

I don’t want to nitpick the costume because it, um, looks like a professionally made Superman costume, but everything else confuses me here.  Is Supes evil in the new movie?  Between the fact that he appears to be breaking into a vault and his (no other word for it) rape-y expression, I’m not getting much of a “hero” vibe.  The 1950’s greaser hair is doing nothing to dispel this.

Sh*t, I’m bored already.  The movie doesn’t come out for a year and it’s Zack Snyder.  You know what it’s gonna be:

Slow mo. Slow mo.  Slow mo.   Overwrought dialog.  More slow mo. Tonally incoherent pop songs sprinkled throughout.  The end. 

Zack Snyder is the spiritual frat-brother to Michael Bay.
