Filming on Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is now under-way and some set images of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent appeared online earlier this week, so to reduce the risk of someone snapping Cavill in his red and blue costume Warner Bros. have released a polished image of the new Superman.
One noticeable change to the costume compared to previous films is the darker shade of blue, something which could hint at the tone of the reboot. They’ve also got rid of the red underwear, which I approve of. It is 2011 afterall.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from superhero costumes it’s that they always look better in motion, but as a ‘first look’ it looks pretty good.
The movie stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent. Russell Crowe will take on the role of Superman’s biological father Jor-El, with Julia Ormond playing Superman’s Kryptonian mother. Michael Shannon will play the villain, General Zod, and German actress Antje Traue has been cast as villainess Faora.
Man of Steel‘s release date was recently pushed back to June 14, 2013. What do you think of the costume?
