The lucky folks at Comic-Con this year got a sneak peek of the new Superman movie, MAN OF STEEL, starring Henry Cavill, who was there at the Warner Bros. presentation in San Diego on Saturday. Zack Snyder directed the pic and was also there in Hall H, where the footage was released. Apparently, it was a hit with those lucky few who got a glimpse. Christopher Nolan produced the film. I guess we will just have to wait....
