It'll take some getting used to, but I like that it actually looks like it could be from an alien planet.

It certainly doesn't look like something Ma Kent could have slapped together.

That back-story was always something of a stretch.

I prefer the 'Returns' suit but he looks fine. Actor looks appropriate.

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

I like the new costume as well. I would have preferred if the gold belt was more prominent, but it is integrated into the suit pretty subtly. The material does look appropriately alien, and the symbol is just fantastic.

Henry Cavill really looks great in the costume as well. He really looks like Superman. His muscles seem like they are bulging right out of the costume. I'm assuming the costume is sculpted to his physique, and there's probably some built muscle-structure in there (similar to the Toby Maguire Spider-Man suit) but Cavill looks very muscular.

I love the cape. It's impractical, but it has a great "flowing" quality to it.

I hate the suit. Looks like a wet suit.

I can';t find it, b ut there was a design where someone drew Supes with a kind of red stripe in the belt area - it wasn't actually a belt that was a separate piece, nor was it briefs, but it still effectively broke up the monotony of the uniform

I like both suits about equally, but Cavill does seem to wear his a lot better.

And if he looks this good in spy photos in between takes, just imagine how awesome he'll look in the actual movie.

I do wish there was more of a defined belt area. The midsection just looks a bit overly artsy with the partial belt look.

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

The suit sucks big time, from the lack of trunks down to that stupid ass GA chest symbol. I think I'll go watch an episode of the Flash since that is what it looks like he is wearing.

It does look a bit weird from the side, but from the front I think the overall effect works really well.

It's probably more 'realistic'. I don't know about 'better'.

While I do like the suit over all I do have to agree with CaptaiN Craig here.

I think it would have looked a little bit better if they had used a red belt like the NewDCU Superman has.

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

The whole "let's not have underwear, but keep the belt" look has always seemed kind of weird half-measure to me. It's like it only serves to remind you that there used to be trunks there.

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

I like aspects of it. I wouldn't mind some red or gold somewhere in the midst of the piping in the belt section, but that's minor. The shield itself is a solid design choice. It's hard to tell how the colors will read, since these are flat lighting shots. Snyder likes his filters, so it might look much different on the screen.

The only bit of piping I'm not sure about is around the cape, shown here.

The sort-of bracelets are interesting. It kind of give him a Samson/strongman look.

Overall, I think he looks like a composite of many versions of Superman. As people have mentioned, there are hints of earlier versions of the character, as well as an obvious attempt to propel him into the future.
