Another Good Look at Henry Cavill in his New Superman Suit – UPDATED

63 Comments

Superman ComicZack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” is still shooting their Smallville scenes over in Illinois (apparently there will be LOTS of action taking place in ol Smallville considering how long they’ve been there), and it’ll be a while yet before we get Supes rebooted on the big screen again. The movie has been scheduled for 2013, which is a hell of a long way off, and makes you wonder if the studio isn’t making a mistake waiting so long. Sure, by delaying the film for a whole year they stay the heck away from “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Avengers”, but come on, 2013??? That seems a tad overkill.

POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW

In any case, here’s another very good look at Henry Cavill as Superman in costume sans the overwhelming dark shadows/tones of the official image released a month ago. Not sure if Cavill took off the cape in-between shots or if ol Supes will be getting that cape of his ripped off at some point in the movie. Either way, I wouldn’t want to meet Cavill in a dark alley. Dude is ripped.

“Man of Steel” co-stars Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Julia Ormond, Antje Traue, and Harry Lennix, and takes off again June 14, 2013. Yes, 2013. That’s a looooooooong ways off.

    On the other hand, I guess is safe to say Michael Sannon is not the guy in the motion capture suit.

    Who can the character be?. A very enhanced Non?.

    I don’t care what all you traditionalists say this suit looks sicks as hell!! I have always hated superman’s classic costume. It lacked style hands down. Come on light blue with bright red undies, a yellow belt and a cape that could get caught on all types of shit? Really? Yes, I know his cape is still part of the suit but, at least it looks better toned down and no god awful yellow “S” on the back. Love the texture and space age looking designs. Finally supes looks bad ass and not like a ballerina!

      Do your homework – classic Superman never wore light blue – it was closer to navy. What you’re referring to is NOT the classic Superman, but rather the toned down Superfriends Superman from the 70’s.

    They moved the film’s release so it wouldn’t have to compete with WB’s other December tentpole movie, “The Hobbit.” I’d say that’s a smart move on their part.

    Those new pics look sick – I still maintain that there is something about the undies that wouldn’t look dumb on this suit!

    shame on you Hollywood! you’ve ruined the movie before it was ever finished! That’s it, the superman mythos is over, effectively ruined! What the hell kinda suit is that? it is a shame… Chris Reeve and the others before him must be weeping in their graves by now! Big Shame!
