'Man of Steel,' '300' Reveal Posters Heavy on Dude Appeal

Flyers for Zach Snyder's two action films bulk up on hulk

Tuesday was a big day for super dude-y movie posters of upcoming Zach Snyder action flicks.

First, Mondo released two sets of posters for sale inspired by "Man of Steel" by artists Ken Taylor and Martin Ansin.

Taylor's poster depicts a young Clark Kent running through a field towards his farmhouse. The sparing use of color — only the boy's red cape — pops the innocent, yet dramatic rural scene.

The more traditional comic book movie poster by Ansin shows the hero in space, hovering above the Earth that he has sworn to protect. In beams are other characters from the film, a mix of friends and foes. Ansin's poster will go on sale Friday and will include a limited edition metal variant.

In related bro-movie-poster-news, Warner Bros. Pictures and Snyder released a new one for "300: Rise of an Empire." Coincidentally (or not if you saw the bloodshed in the original "300"), the eye is drawn directly to the color red, which in this case is a tidal wave of blood.

A beaten up and exhausted Spartan catches his breath on the rocky cliff in the foreground. Don't expect the sequel to be rated PG-13.
