The new costume has a 30s/Deco vibe to it.
The first time I read this, I thought it said 30s/Disco. lol
Somewhere there is a costume with a shirt open to his navel, a gold chain medallion and flares.

Moving on from the costume topic for a moment...since this is an origin story I was worried we wouldn't see much of Superman in costume and action until near the end of the film. Despite the pictures of Supes in his suit I am more hopeful that this will be more than a pure origin story and we will see more of Superman in action that I had feared.
I'm fine with waiting a bit til we see him in the full suit, but I do hope we at least get some early glimpses of it, or at least get to see the grown Clark doing some super-powered stuff.

It's hard to know what we'll get with Nolan though. Begins was a pretty straightforward origin, but then he has other movies which jump all over the place.

I wonder if it will follow a Batman Begins scenario with Clark struggling to find himself a midst flashbacks to his childhood? But then we know Russell Crowe is playing Jor-El so there are bound to be scenes on Krypton.

So it is hard to know how this will all fit together.

Personally I like the new movie suit and the way Cavill looks in it just fine.
I do like the brightened colors on the bottom left image.
I'd be fine with that. It's difficult to tell exactly what color the suit is, since it varies with the lighting in pictures.

The one thing the bottom left has that I like is the use of gold to make the thing look more like a belt. I think it would make for a better homage, while still being closer to the changed suit. Minor differences either way, but I thought I'd say something while I'm in the peanut gallery.

Let's remember that these shots of Cavill are candid photographs. The suit will likely look very different after post-production.

I understand the motivation behind manipulating the costume to gauge reaction... but why did the 'artist' feel the need to give him a 17 year old's haircut : /

Two (variations) pretty god damn epic sweet fan art posters I found. Simple, understated, just the logo... but hot damn visually yummy.

Like, for an instant you think they're real teaser art.

Not a fan of the slogan, but those are otherwise kickass.

Those fan art pics are an homage to the original in looks as well as slogan. Very nice!

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

The four comparison shots above, the "real one" looks pretty good, actually. I think I'd still like a more defined area for the "belt"/waist and I think the "trunks" are an iconic look one expects for Superman but, overall, the new costume doesn't look too bad, I suppose.

I'm not a big fan of the darker colors, though. But, whatever. What'll matter most to me is how the movie itself is.

And seeing the Routh suit again, Oy. I did not like that one at all.

Newsarama's "Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.-- Superman Goes To The Movies" examines and compares all of the theatrical Superman suits from Reeve To Cavill.

I agree with a lot he says. I disagree with him about the shorts, but then he does acknowledge the suit needs something of colour to break up all the blue. An, yes, the blue tone is awful. And the cape does look too large.
