Although the poster imagery shows actor Terry Crews holding a metal hammer with the name "John Henry", this movie has no relation to the DC Comics superhero "Steel" whose name is John Henry Irons and (upon Superman's death) decided to create a heavily armored "steel" suit with his main weapon being a smart sledgehammer to carry on the Man of Steel's legacy.
