Amazon.com has your first look at the cover for Daniel Wallace’s “The Art of Superman Returns,” hitting stores on June 30. Here is how the 160-page book is described:
The Man of Steel is back on the silver screen when Superman Returns hits theaters June 2006. Directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men) and packed with explosive action, this blockbuster film documents the super hero’s returnâ€”after a mysterious absence of several yearsâ€”to a troubled Metropolis, where he is compelled to face his destiny in a world that has forgotten what it’s like to have a hero. The Art of Superman Returns is an in-depth celebration of the concept and developmental art that served as an aesthetic foundation for the highly anticipated film. Nearly 200 pieces of gorgeous art capture all-new setsâ€”a cosmopolitan, art deco Metropolis, a massive, shimmering Fortress of Solitude, and a spectacular spaceshipâ€”and showcase the film’s inventive costumes and breathtaking locations. An informed text that includes interviews with the director, screenwriters, artists, and production and costume designers completes this thoughtfully crafted deluxe hardcover. For the many Superman fans anxiously awaiting his revival, The Art of Superman Returns is a behind-the-scenes tour not to be missed.
