Photo: Russell Crowe as Jor-El in ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ | Reel Movie Nation

The first images of Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Superman’s biological father, are now online!

Thanks to Daily Mail, several images from the set of Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel, capture Russell Crowe in full costume! The Kryptonian scientist sports his own version of a metal chested “S” (the Kal-El family crest from the 1978 film) and wears a deep red cape.

If you missed out on the latest Superman news, Lara Lor-Van, Jor-El’s wife, will no longer be played by Julia Ormond, but will now be played by Ayelet Zurer.

Check out the photo and let us know what you think of the costume.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Superman: Man of Steel also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Julia Ormand, Antje Traue and Harry Lennix. This film hits theaters June 14th, 2013.
