Henry Cavill and the New Superman Costume
By Joe Thompson
Pictures of Henry Cavill from the upcoming Superman flick Man of Steel, have been leaking from the set in the last couple of days, but none of those images have revealed very much detail.
Even the official photo released by Warner Bros. a few weeks ago kept most of the super-suit in the shadows.
Now the studio has released a close-up image, and it's been soaring through cyberspace faster than a speeding bullet. It's based much more closely on the new DC Comics designs rather than the traditional "red briefs" version Christopher Reeve wore in the classic 1970s films. Cavill appears to be filling out the costume in, um, all the right places, the changes to the classic superhero's image have caused some controversy among fans.
