Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's an absolute truckload of new images and posters from "Man Of Steel," Zack Snyder's increasingly imminent reboot of the Superman series. Many groaned when Snyder got the gig three years back, even with Christopher Nolan acting as producer, but the closer the film's gotten, the more it looks like the naysayers, ourselves included, might have to eat their words. And there's plenty more confidence to be found in this batch of photos, banners and posters from Warner Bros, which indicate almost every facet of the new movie, from Russell Crowe' Kryptonian father Jor-El, to Laurence Fishburne's Daily Planet boss Perry White, and more besides.

Of the three big superhero movies this year, "The Wolverine" might well be the least anticipated at this point. "Iron Man 3" had the heat off "The Avengers," and has already made a billion dollars, while "Man Of Steel" has a reboot, the Christopher Nolan factor and some pretty amazing trailers. Whereas while James Mangold's film is from the longest-running superhero franchise currently going (it's thirteen years since Hugh Jackman first donned the claws), it's coming off two sub-standard films in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and "X-Men: First Class," and it's reflected in the relative lack of buzz for the film. That said, it doesn't arrive until the end of July, so Fox have plenty of time to correct that, and the new trailer that just arrived should help quite a bit. It's not wildly different to what we've seen so far, but it takes its time a little more, and feels a bit more muscular and confident as a result, particularly with some of the dodgy effects from previous promos seemingly...
