Man of Steel

Here's an interesting excerpt from a report on costume designer Michael Wilkerson's recent appearance at the 5D | FLUX conference. The passage is meant to explain the mythology of why Superman's costume features the big S-shield:
Wilkinson explained that since they created a "neo-medieval" back story for Krypton (which included the creation of a new language), it made sense to utilize the suit design as part of the mythology. "Everyone on Krypton wears this suit," he suggested. Using ZBrush and rapid prototyping, Wilkinson came up the blue/gray color and chainmail look. "It has function and purpose and a logic to this fantastical world," he added.
