First image of Henry Cavill in Batman v Superman

Raindrops keep falling on Henry Cavill's head in this first image from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Superman, who in spite of all of his alien powers, apparently doesn’t have the sense to come in out of the rain. Here’s Henry Cavill as the last son of Krypton, looking rugged and moody in the first official image from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It’s dark, gloomy, gritty, and very rainy – in short, we like it.



Another slightly less official behind-the-scenes shot of Cavill was tweeted by the Royal Marine’s Charitable Trust Fund earlier this week (Cavill is holding up one of their t shirts in the image).



Here is what Clark Kent (as opposed to Kal-El) will presumably be sporting come April 29th 2016, when Batman v Superman will be hitting UK screens.

What do you reckon to these two images of our newest Superman?
