The DC Comic movies are hitting the headlines again, with the recent release of photos for Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel, and the first shots of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight Returns

First up Henry Cavill as Superman. Interesting photo, and stylistically, a lot darker than I thought it would be, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Whilst I didn’t hate Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns as much as some people (Singer said it was going to be a homage to Donner’s 80’s Superman movies, and that’s exactly what it was… It’s just not what the public wanted, which I totally get as well. DC really just shouldn’t have let Singer do it in the first place…), if this shot is anything to go by,  Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel‘ is going to be a far grittier take on Superman which will hopefully sit a lot better with a current audience.

Next are a couple of photos of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in Chris Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns‘. As you’d rather expect from a Nolan Batman movie, it’s a less ‘comic book’ take on Catwoman. The catsuit and goggles are there, but in a far more realistic fashion than previous incarnations. It also seems Catwoman has swiped Batman’s Batpod, living up to her cat burglar reputation!
