FIRST LOOK AT HENRY CAVILL IN COSTUME AS SUPERMAN
Warner Bros. released this photo today of Henry Cavill in full Superman costume for Zack Snyder’s upcoming re-boot, Superman: The Man of Steel. There was lots of speculation on the ol’ Interwebs that Cavill’s costume would take after the recent re-design of Superman’s costume by Jim Lee for the DC Comics re-launch, but thankfully there is no ridiculous collar or any armor plates. The red undies do appear to be gone, and the whole thing has that weird basketball-like beaded rubber look to it, just like Andrew Garfield’s new Spider-Man costume. I’m also not a huge fan of Cavill’s hair in this shot. It looks too wind-blown and 80’s. There needs to be an “S’-shaped spit curl in there as well. I love the pose and the destroyed vault set, though. Click on the photo for a huge, hi-res version.
