First Pic Of Henry Cavill In Superman CostumeAugust 4, 2011
Warner Bros. has released the first picture of Henry Cavill as Superman for the new Zack Snyder-directed reboot, The Man Of Steel. Click on the image below for the hi-res version.
The suit doesn’t look like it has changed much since Brandon Routh wore the costume in Superman Returns, with a few small tweaks. It looks slightly more muted color-wise, and has a different texture. If you look closely at the hi-res version, you can see what looks like some added armor- on his wrists, the side of his legs, and around his abdomen. And it seems like they finally got rid of his red underwear!
So what do you think? Personally, I think this guy looks buffer and more badass than Brandon Routh did in the costume- he essentially looked like the Calvin Klein version of Superman. This guy actually looks like he can whoop some ass. As for the costume, I was hoping with Christopher Nolan on board the project, that they would go for a darker, more toned down costume. As long as the movie is a lot better than Superman Returns, I’m fine with it.
