First look at Russell Crowe on the set of the Superman reboot Man of Steel
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It doesn’t seem like that long ago that Crowe was one of the best and most respected actors working in Hollywood. But 2001 was ten years ago and Crowe has kind of fallen from grace since then. I’m not sure what to make of these set photos of Russell Crowe in full Jor-El (Superman’s biological father) costume while filming Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL. Is that an “S” on his chest? This looks a little costume-y to me, but a Superman movie taken out of context is going to come off ridiculous, so you can’t judge a movie by the set photos. With that said, would it hurt Russell Crowe to hit a gym once in a while? I know he’s older and richer now, but c’mon, do a sit-up or two.
MAN OF STEEL stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni and Laurence Fishburne. Zack Snyder is handling directing duties on the reboot with a close eye from producer Christopher Nolan. MAN OF STEEL hits theaters on June 14th, 2013.
