Looks like the outfit Superman wore after he returned in The Death of Superman.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Wow first i've heard or seen this.

http://www.thinkmcflythink.com/movie...medium=twitter

Cavill's 2004 screen test for "Superman:Flyby" which was going to be directed by J.J Abrams with Robert Downey Jr as Lex Luthor.







The suit seriously doesn't look TOO BAD.

It's still got the 90's idea of molded body definitions like Batman


Even a bit of Nicholas Cage's superman suit

The suit from those tests actually looks even closer to the nu52 suit than the one we got.

It looks good in stills, but I suspect in motion it probably didn't work too well. Too stiff.

It's not about the suit. I'm sick of these little bumps on the suit that make no sense except to make it look better in HD.

With Reeve's Superman, they kept the classic costume.. it might have looked silly that he was wearing undies around his pants, but guess what, it was never actually silly.

It was all about how Reeve carried himself. He imagined he was wearing a three-piece suit and carried himself accordingly. He walked proudly, heroically. That counted more than the silliness of the trunks
No, it did look silly. It looked very silly.

Also, the bumps are just an idea someone tried that they decided looked good. They give the suit an alien feel, which is a good thing, since it is supposed to be an alien suit. This assumption that something must have been done for bs reasons just because you don't like it is dumb.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Yes, the suit looked silly in the old Reeve movies. The tone of those films was very different, though, and leaned toward silliness.

Doubtless the screen-test suit Cavil's wearing in the 2004 footage is an early prototype that would have been changed, refined and quite possibly discarded.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I never thought the Christopher Reeve suit looked "silly". But let's be honest, at the end of the day we're still looking at grown men wearing colorful, skin-tight costumes. I frankly don't see anything less "silly" about Cavill's costume than the ones worn by Reeve and Routh. The texture on Cavill's suit bugs me because it's busy for the sake of being busy. I don't feel like it adds anything to the design. It makes it look like Superman is wearing an outfit made from recycled basketballs. Take away the texture and brighten up the colors and it would be fine.

IMO the Dean Cain suit looks the worst. Routh's suit is actually fairly bright. It's the filter Singer used in the film that makes it looks dark.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I certainly didn't think Reeve's suit was silly as a kid, but now? Yeah just a little. Fortunately though Reeve still makes it work and feel completely natural (and it also fits the style and tone of those movies perfectly).

That being said though, I have a feeling the Cavill suit will age much better over time.

The Reeve suit almost looks like something you can pick up at a Halloween costume shop. It's so smooth and shiny. It looks like a costume more than actual attire.
