Warner Bros. is killing two birds with one stone. This week, The Dark Knight Rises hits shelves and they're using its buzz to promote another hero—Superman. A new Man of Steel poster debuted online thanks to TDKR's official Facebook page.

Weeks ago, The Dark Knight Rises movie site claimed that a reward was coming. It had a countdown to the Blu-ray and a gift to unlock. Once it became available, one click took you to a new image from Man of Steel. It's a poster that features Superman looking—not so super.

It shows the Kryptonian restrained (say what?) and surrounded by guards. This could be part of a larger plan. Superman could have an ace up his rubbery sleeve. If not, someone, somewhere must have kryptonite on tap.

Man of Steel opens in theaters June 14.
