I just saw these pictures.
I know you had talked about this but I have to say it:
I insisted so much when those pictures of Cage's head over a plastic toy were released that that and the early sketches weren't exactly what Superman was going to look in Superman Lives. But no, pretty much everyone bought and swallowed those fake pics at straight away.
It was obvious. Tim Burton would make a Superman suit the way he invented it and left to posterity: dark suit with muscles and a long cape.
That said, am I seeing the MOS's bracelets there?
Personally I love what we got in MOS. But I love this suit too.
Great suit, people.
