The supporting cast for the blockbuster features Amy Adams as Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Superman birth father Jor-El and Michael Shannon as villain General Zod.
Speaking to Digital Spy earlier this week, Nolan said of the new Superman: "I don't want to say too much about it because they're at the beginning of their process in terms of post-production. I think what Zack and Henry are doing is going to make a remarkable impression."
DC Comics' flagship hero was previously portrayed on the big screen by Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh in 2006's Superman Returns.
It was recently announced that Man of Steel will be post-converted to 3D and released in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D cinemas on June 14, 2013.
