“Man of Steel” set photos reveal Henry Cavill showing off his abs of steel

“Man of Steel” set photos reveal Henry Cavill showing off his abs of steel (photo)

While Amy Adams has been busy filming her scenes bundled up on the Vancouver Island set of “Man of Steel,” titular leading man Henry Cavill has taken a different approach. A whole slew of photos have hit the web showing the “Immortals” star wandering around shirtless on the set that is supposed to be an Alaskan fishing village.

And there certainly are fish in the photos. In one, a bunch of salmon steaks can be seen drying in the background. Judging by Cavill’s rugged, bearded look, work boots and ripped jeans, it seems like his Superman might take a break from crime fighting and his side job at the Daily Planet to live off the land for a bit. Or he just has a different definition of “vacation” than I do.

It’s unclear how the Alaskan fishing village storyline will fit into the full plot of “Man of Steel.” Adams’s Lane was seen interviewing a waitress at an Alaskan truck stop in set photos released earlier this week, so she could be trying to track down a certain superhero who just happened to decide he wanted some man time to go fishing. Or maybe Lane and Kent are working together on a story that led them to some investigating up in arctic climes. We’ll have to wait until “Man of Steel” hits theaters on June 14, 2013 to find out.

“Man of Steel” is directed by Zack Snyder, and also stars Russell Crowe, Michael Shanon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner and Lawrence Fishburne.

Do all these set photos make you more excited about seeing the finished product? Let us know below or on Facebook or Twitter.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
