There's no reason to fear modernity and change even if it isn't necessary. He still looks like Superman overall, so I don't see anything radical with the outfit. I would support a gold (or actually, red) belt, but I see nothing wrong with the movie's interpretation. We're not talking about Tim Burton's suit here.
The Burton suit was fine. They even retooled the comics to go more that direction, all black, after the movie. Prior he was still wearing the blue/grays.

It was the Schumacher suit with nipples that was an atrocity.
Tim Burton Superman suit, not Batman suit.
Ah, with that clarification in mind I agree.

The new suit looks nothing like the Nic Cage suit. It's a 100 times better.

Hmm. Perhaps I was wrong about the 'shop.

I'm glad this didn't happen if for no other reason than Cage is totally wrong to play Superman.
It is simply amazing that anyone in Hollywood actually considered casting Cage as Superman!!!

I DO really like that silver shield design they came up with.

That's about it though.

I believe it was intended to be Superman's "rebirth" suit, after being killed by Doomsday.

Thank God someone did. From what I understand, he's the one with the sense to get that production killed.

Yeah, that is just bizarre. You could maybe get away with it for an original character, but I can't believe someone considered putting Superman in it.

Looks good, I do wanna see some glasses though. His hair looks like it pretty much has the curl, I don't know why he doesn't have it in the Superman pic?

^ 'Cause it is possible that his hair hadn't been touched up in the Superman pic? I'm reaching here because all of this hair talk is kind of ridiculous.

I just don't see why they would go through the trouble of adhering to that look as Clark, then change it for Superman. Again, it's just arbitrary change for no real reason. It doesen't bother me, I just don't see why it's necessary?

I have to say, while it might not have been an ideal choice for Superman, the light-up costume does look kinda cool.

I have to believe that the picture was taken after a fitting and probably not reflective of how Cage would actually look in the film.
