Call it coincidence or perfect timing, Warner Bros. released the official poster for Zack Snyder's 300: Rise of an Empire while Man of Steel was enjoying his first weekend at the theatres.
Immortals actor Henry Cavill will be seen donning the 'cursed' suit of Superman this time as he stars as the Kryptonian Kal-El aka Clark Kent.
Snyder's first 300, which was a box-office super-hit in 2007, is one of the key reasons for all the hype surrounding his Superman venture. He previously released a teaser poster for the 300 sequel moments after the Man of Steel trailer was released online in April.
The new poster, that announces the official date of release as March 2014 has taken the Twitter world by storm. The wave of blood has garnered much attention.
However, does it beat the old 300 poster? We're not so sure about that.
Here's the April poster beside the old super-hit's poster. Lacks the 2007 creativity for sure.
