Rumours have been flying around that Henry Cavill is set to star in the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie, and if this new poster for 'Superman: Man of Steel' he'll be no stranger to hand-cuffs if he is to take the role of Christian Grey.

The poster was revealed on Facebook by the movie's studio Warner Bros, as part of a promotion related to the release of 'The Dark Knight Rises' on DVD, with the studio writing, “Thank you to all of the fans who helped unlock this exclusive Man Of Steel reward in anticipation of The Dark Knight Rises December 4th release on DVD and Blu-ray” on the page.

The film, directed by Zak Snyder and overseen by batman's Christopher Nolan, is set for release in June 2013, but anticipation is building ahead of the movie, with a trailer debuting with Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey', and another 9 minute clip being released with 'Star Trek Into Darkness' in IMAX theatres.

The poster, featuring Cavill cuffed and surrounded by soldiers, hints that his Superman may not be the clean-cut hero that he has been in the past.

Starring Cavill as America's great superhero, the film looks to have a darker edge than previous Superman movies, continuing the fashion that has prevailed since Nolan's 'Batman Begins'.

It will also star Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crowe as Superman's real father Jor-El, and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.
