A previous image that landed online featuring Henry Cavill as Superman from the Man of Steel that WB asked to take down has now been made available.

The new Superman picture is featured in an interview with Hans Zimmer over at CNN.

You can find the new Man of Steel image below.

Regarding Hans Zimmer, he once again states that the task of following in the footsteps of the John Williams Superman theme was a daunting task, but he does believe he has found the voice for the movie.

"Look, that was daunting," Zimmer confessed. "Seriously. He's the greatest film composer out there, without a doubt, and it happens to be one of his iconic pieces of music, so I spent three months just procrastinating and not even getting a start on the thing, because I was so intimidated: 'Oh my God, I'm following in John Williams' footsteps."

"I kept thinking of the story as, What if you are extraordinary, and your entire ambition is to join humanity? To become human? What does it mean to become human? What does it mean to be an outsider who really wants to join the human race?"

What was important for Superman was the simple fact that none of us pay much attention to the Midwest. I know America mainly by the big cities, but if you go into the Midwest, there is a people there and there is a country there. And I thought it was important that the decent folk, simple folk be the heart of the story, and a character who is guileless, who isn't complicated in the sort of flawed way our Dark Knight is, and isn't political in any way. He's just striving to become a better part of humanity.
