Superman’s Costume Revealed
Despite not debuting until 2013, the first official photo from the upcoming Zack Snyder Superman reboot – Man of Steel – has appeared online. Fanboy reaction has been mixed, but I don’t see what’s not too like. Sure, the scaly costume is a bit odd, but the muted, deeper colors were a much needed improvement. The cape could well be CGI, but who really cares? Noticeably hidden by shadow is Superman’s nether-region, which could or could not include the red tights.
What caught my eye is that Henry Cavill looks like Superman (though I’d been hoping for a shorter-haired version of the character) – just not the Superman we’re used to. This picture alone indicates more action than Superman Returns, and promises that the man of steel, who will be fighting General Zod, will be battling more than just gigantic pieces of earth.
Man of Steel will be released on June 14, 2003.
