From next week, posters for the Warner Bros film “Man of Steel” will have a different look in the lead-up to the film’s Aug 30 release in Japan.
In the posters, Superman, played by British actor Henry Cavill, 30, is seen flying over Mt Fuji. This is the first time that a poster for a Superman movie has been changed for Japan since the first Superman film was released here in 1979. Changing the design of a poster is a complicated process as Hollywood strictly controls such matters.
This time, however, only Japan (among 70 countries where the film has been released) was allowed to make an original poster, according to a Sports Nippon report.
Next Thursday, Cavill, co-star Russell Crowe and director Zack Snyder will visit Tokyo for the Japan premiere.
