I wonder what the reasoning was for not having the S on the cape though. Is it too "silly?" is it too "redundant"? The CGI thing? I'd love to know.

I think it might be because they went with a raised dimpled \S/ on the front of his costume. It might have been to difficult to get something that blends with that dimensional look on the cape, which is clearly a different material to the rest of the costume?? I did wonder after seeing the safe picture, how they would attach a dimensional \S/ on the cape and still have it wrinkle or pleat naturally. Well I think I got my answer!

Btw. It's more likely though that Snyder just didn't want it.
