In related Man of Steel news, the movie is gearing up for a fall shoot in Vancouver, and the neighboring town of Ucluelet. Here's an excerpt of a letter to the Ucluelet municipal council from Rino Pace, a Vancouver locations manager. The title Autumn Frost is a known code name for Man of Steel.

"Autumn Frost will film in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island from early September through to the end of January 2012. We have been preparing the film since early spring, which includes building 'sets' in the various 'stages' in and around the Vancouver area..."

It is also said that the town of Ucluelet will double for an Alaskan fishing village in Man of Steel.

Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013.

    @sean we'll probably see some footage during the previews for TDKR.

      Hey! Here's an idea. When he's Clark, his hair's a dark brown, with brown eyes. For whatever reason, when he sports the uniform his hair is jet black, with blue eyes. Food for thought.

              @bawnian-dexeus Well, for now all you get is a scene where Clark will be riding a bicycle.

                @ejk1@superman81 I would however like to see an image of him ripping his shirt open to reveal the big S. Simply just to see how big he looks with regular attire over his suit, which without a doubt will be edited to make sure he doesn't look ridiculously bulked in his day to day clothing

                  It will be a while until a teaser trailer is released, considering that this movie is not coming out until June 14th 2013.

                    I'll just keep shaking my head until they show me something that changes my mind.

                      Sorry, Guys, but it's looking more and more like a major pass on this movie to me at THIS point. I will keep hope that a good teaser trailer will change my mind.

                          @superman81 There isn't anything to bash here. Everything in these pics looks alright. But that wasn't the reason I didn't post here yesterday. I have been trying to take a break from looking at TDKR and Avenger stories so as not to spoil anything, and I decided to do the same with Man Of Steel. After the last batch of pictures where it looked to me like this was possibly going to be a retread of Superman 2, I decided to wait until I saw something special before I commented. I wouldn't expect a trailer of any kind for a while. December of this year is still about 18 months from the film's release.

                            where is @ejk1? I figured he would be all over this. He is always usually the first one to say how these pics arent much and this doesnt tell us anything. I miss his constant bashing of this movie even though from what we have seen so far its shaping up to be pretty good. At least visual wise anyways. I hope a teaser trailer will be released sometime soon or this December perhaps.

                              Henery Cavill almost looks like Christopher reeve. Freaky even though reeves superman has no connection with the new reboot.

                                I just realised Henry Cavill could actually play also Commander Sheperd..... has that face for it. just see him with short short hair and would actually be pretty bad ass shep. epic
