Actually if anything he looks the spitting image of Christopher Reeve to me, and by extension the image of Superman as depicted by all the Superman artists inspired by Reeve's such as John Byrne. I don't see much of Curt Swan's Superman in him. And by the way, I know he's riding a bike but shouldn't he be wearing glasses, or are these shots of rehearsals?
John Byrne's Superman looked as much like any good looking, dark-haired dude as he did Chrisopher Reeve. Same goes for Cavill.

Reeve had a very angular face. Swan's Superman and Cavill have more rounded features.

Didn't Curt eventually modify his Superman to look less square-jawed and more detailed in the 1970s? Then again, could be due to a different inker I suppose.

Yes, Murphy Anderson's inks did add a bit to the look of Swan's Superman.

Zack looking an awfully like Mark Ruffalo these days. Thats awesome though JA! Too bad you couldn't get that close to Nolan.

We all know he's got a 100 ft restraining order from Nolan.

For real? Or are you guess just giving him a hard time?
Nah, not for real. It's just a running joke with JacksonArcher. (Have you read the "The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station" thread? Hilarity ensues...)

^ The restraining order joke goes much further back than that...we first brought it up during "The Dark Knight" production Tee hee.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Love the idea of Zod wearing a black version of Superman's outfit. Makes it seem like more of a standard Kryptonian uniform.

Be curious to see what the shield looks like...

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

This was Zod's symbol when he was introduced in Superman: Last Son. I suspect they will do something different. "Smallville" had a Krypontian "Z" symbol for his crest.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Yeah I think I'd rather just have a strange kryptonian symbol on there. A "Z" for Zod just seems like it would be a little too silly, for some reason.

^ Yea. I think that is his ceremonial Council robes from New Krypton...or it is fan art. I did see that in google images.

I like the sunburst the best.

I like to think the House of Zod got locked in early and got one of the most basic and (cross-culturally) iconic ones, while El was a little later and had to use a spiffied up version of their name. I mean, if they were handing out symbols to a million families at the dawn of their civilization, only the very coolest is going to get to use the freakin' sun that they worship.

I also find it interesting that the sunburst is yellow and not red.

The Smallville symbol. You can see Smallville's Zod symbol behind Clark's shoulder in the linked picture.
