Man, still can't really make out that belt area. There's clearly something there, but hard to know what.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

It's possible some of the costume will be CGI. Like I stated a few pages ago this is a film shoot suit which hasn't been completely been touched up and stuff like the suit we saw from the studio release. I suspect that it will look much cleaner and refined when we see an actual picture of it again or in a trailer.

Specific lighting, color correction - there's a lot that goes into how everything finally appears.

If all of what can be seen is Cavill's actual physique, he's the most muscular guy ever to play this part. Okay, possible exception of Cain; Cavill looks to have more definition here.

Why is pretty silly when you think about it. The more muscular Superman is, the more ridicious it is that none of the people around Clark Kent have noticed that he is Superman. Reminds me of that segement on SNL with the Rock as Clark Kent!

Likely it's supposed to be "billowing" there or otherwise would have been a hindrance to production so it's not there and will be added in post via CGI.

Interesting picture but I still think there needs to be "something" there in that vast field of blue to give the costume a more dynamic look. And Supe's blue area disturbs me.

It's always been that way.

As for "where's the cape" I'd guess that's the part of the costume they're least likely to just leave him wearing when there's much time between set-ups. It's going to get in his way doing just about anything - assuming that he can sit in that outfit.

It's also possible they were shooting a fight scene and he lost it. Clark loses his cape in fights all the time in the comics.

Holy crap. Tons of great, up close shots of the suit now over at the SuperheryHype forums.

They definitely seem to be emphasizing the alien aspect in the design.

The more I see of the suit, the more I absolutely love it.
