Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)
The New 52 suit has regenerative properties as Trekker mentioned, but it appears as just a kind of bodysuit that Clark wears. It seems to automatically recognize the House of El crest that Clark wears on his t-shirt as part of his "normal" costume and that is when it kind of "morphs" (for lack of a better word) into the "Super suit". At least that is how I've come to understand the new suit. Probably has some kind of advanced Kryptonian nanotech or something that recognizes Clark's biology. I think this is kind of what JJ Abrams had in mind with "Superman: Flyby".
I agree that it is possible that the "Man of Steel" suit could have some kind of regenerative properties to it as well.
