I like that they went with the classic design for the most part, but why does it need scales? (on the S shield, no less)
The scales/texture to the S shield would be my only complaint.

I have read that this costume doesn't have the rd undies on the outside, anyone know if that is true?

Well, one can only hope that it is.

For the hell of it I upped the saturation. Meh:

I kind of like the red undies. They break the costume up instead of it looking like a big blue onesie.

That cape looks more blood red than the typical bright red of the Reeves costume and I have to say I actually like it!

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

Well, messing with the saturation control doesn't necessarily tell you much about the "true" color - you're limited to the information in the original image.

As for the shape of the shield, here's a pretty old drawing of the pre-Swan Supes:

And here's the 1941 version of the shield:

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

Though the studio put out this picture, I don't think this will be a good representation of the filmed version. Production has not even started yet, but here they are showing some "action scene" to us and then toning all the colors down.

I equate this photo with every damn "first look" photo we ever get of a superhero or iconic character on Entertainment Weekly, because they are always bad overly-manipulated teases. Ill wait a while before seeing a real pic.

No armor. Superman's not about going into war. He wears his heritage.






It doesn't look like DC reboot costume but looks modern and classic at the same time

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

With all of the talk about the costume (understandable), there has been little talk about the press release that came with it. It sheds some light on the previously unknown characters in the movie:

Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar� nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue.Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.
Obviously we knew that Shannon was Zod and that Traue was Faora but I didn't know that she was his partner (maybe some of you more familiar with the comics did). And while it had been previously confirmed that Meloni had a military rank, I remember some debate as to whether he would be General Lane or would be a Kryptonian soldier. Now it seems he's neither.

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if that was just a CG background he's standing in front of (especially knowing Snyder).

But hey, at least the first shot is actually a pretty BADASS one. Unlike the utterly weak one of Routh standing on that ledge. As much as I liked SR, the publicity shots they created for it had to be some of the lamest and cheapest looking ones I've ever seen.

There's something very Thor-ish about the way the suit looks in that pic.

I can't say I'm a big fan of the scales, but I guess it's a minor quibble.
I was going to say the same thing, it looks like Thor's.

I'm not sure how I feel about the texture either. It also seems dark and dirty, I would prefer something a little brighter. This looks a little drab. But, then, it might be the lighting.

I just don't know why every superhero costume lately needs the same texture....

Probably the whole 3D craze. They want to add some semblance of texture, which probably doesn't even add anything anyways.

No giant inline images, please, especially from webspace that isn't yours.

Thank you.

I think he looks pretty good as Superman.

It wouldn't surprise you if it's a CG background? Look at it? It's obviously a CG background. And a pretty fake looking one at that. In fact, looking at the bottom of the cape, I think that might be CGI too. It makes me wonder if the whole thing is CGI outside of his face.

I love the costume. Think it looks pretty good. I had a feeling that it would be out soon but not this soon!

I was going to say the same thing about the "S" shield. The 1941 version was also used, albet slightly altered for the Earth-2 Superman, which Cavill's shield highly resembles.

I love the suit and think the movie designers did a helluv a better job than those who designed the DC reboot costume. Although, I would've liked the shield to be ingrained into the fabric of the suit, much like the latest Spidey movie costume's logo, than raised. But that's a rather small preference.
