Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures recently released a photo revealing the look of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel. The preview suggests that the latest incarnation of Superman will be darker and grittier. At first glance, I thought Superman looked great. As long as they stay away from spandex I will be happy. However, I did notice that one thing was missing from the latest Superman – the vintage front hair curl.
“There’s been a bit of a ruckus on the internets over Superman’s locks. If you know me, you know that I love Superman. LOVE him. The ‘Christian Slater’ coif he’s sporting here is keeping me up at night. It aint right. My Photoshop skills are meager at best, but I managed to give Big Blue a digital haircut. Alright now, where’s that phone book… lemme see… wonder if Zack Snyder’s in here…” -Chris Gardner
No worries, illustrator Chris Gardner put together a nice mockup of what Henry Cavill’s Superman would look like with the famous hair curl. The added curl definitely makes this Superman more Superman-like. While we are unsure as to whether or not Superman will sport the hair curl in the movie (no other photo stills have been released), Cavill was spotted on set sporting the curl as Clark Kent.
Now the only thing left to worry about is whether or not Superman will be sporting the red tights in the Man of Steel.
