A few MAN OF STEEL news blurbs...

USA TODAY has a pic of a Jor-El action figure which gives up a pretty good look at what Russell Crowe will look like in costume...

HERO COMPLEX gives a look at a Zod action figure...

Via, LATINO-REVIEW.COM, this is the first "offical" image of Amy Adams as Lois Lane...

And via COLLIDER.COM, David Goyer says that they are going for a "realistic" approach with MAN OF STEEL...

"We're approaching Superman as if it weren't a comic book movie, as if it were real."

"It just struck me that there was an idealist quality to them that may or may not work with today's audience. It just struck me that if Superman really existed in the world, first of all this story would be a story about first contact."

"He's an alien. You can easily imagine a scenario in which we'd be doing a film like E.T., as opposed to him running around in tights. If the world found out he existed, it would be the biggest thing that ever happened in human history. It falls into that idea of trying to humanise the inhuman. He's made out of steel, he's not made out of flesh, metaphorically speaking. We are portraying him as a man, yet he's not a man."

Right on, Goyer, right on. Here's hoping that Warner Bros. sees the light and cancels -- err, "postones" -- that disaster in waiting Justice League movie.

MAN OF STEEL flies into theaters on JUNE 14, 2013!
