First Henry Cavill Superman Image

British actor Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Immortals) is Superman in Zack Snyder’s (300,Sucker Punch) 2013 Superman reboot. Laurence Fishburne was officially cast as his boss at The Daily Planet, Perry White. Yes, White is..white, but I can see Fishburne in the role.

The suit is obviously textured, for easier special affects use I’d assume, and there’s no sign of the famous spit curl or red undies. The cape looks huge too, but overall, I like it. It’s darker, like the original comics costume, and the smashed safe wall seem to allude to a powerful fight for the Man of Steel. Finally!

The noticeable thing is that by the time this gets to the screen, the new comics costume, as designed by Jim Lee, will have already been out for 2 years, but I guess this film costume is what most people associate with the Man of Steel, plus the more armoured new comics version would probably look rather odd in action.
