Hughes followed up this week with advice for fans desperate to see the new superhero suits of Batman and Wonder Woman.
"Let your first exposure to the new batsuit & Wonder Woman be an epic moment w/high quality official images, the way it's intended to be," he tweeted.
Man of Steel 2 features the return of several actors in their original Man of Steel roles. Henry Cavill is reprising his role as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
Meanwhile, there are also many actors joining the Superman franchise for its sequel. In addition to Affleck's Batman/Bruce Wayne, Man of Steel 2 features Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, the butler of Bruce Wayne.
