Because Warner Bros. is thinking of its millions of fans all over the world, ahead of the DVD and Blu-ray release of “The Dark Knight Rises,” it has unlocked a new official poster for its upcoming Superman film, “Man of Steel.”

Check it out in full above.

Yes, that is Superman in shackles, surrounded by military men and looking very much like a defeated superhero, your eyes are not deceiving you.

Starring Henry Cavill as the famous flying superhero and helmed by cult director Zack Snyder, “Superman” promises to be darker, more serious and more real than any other previous incarnations.

This image of him in shackles (is he being vilified by the very people he’s protecting, or is some greater force making him do bad things?) would seem to suggest the same.

“Man of Steel” also stars Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, and will be out in theaters on June 14.
