Why did they change the hair to look like the one Superman is wearing in the movie, when all they needed was a black version of this?
I agree. That should be the hairstyle Supes has in JL.

No thanx to the hairstyle in the new pictures. Looks even more stylized than in MOS. Looks like a music-video from the 80s-90s.

Then just have it trimmed up a bit in the back near his neck line if you want to avoid the 80's or 90's look.

The top part of his hair parting on the left, flowing to the right in what naturally looks like a non-forced S curl is what makes it look good.

Dont get all the love for the S-curl. Dont care if it's a character signature-thing. It's silly and it looks stupid.

More pics of Henry looking dapper:
Full breaks on trousers and jacket cut (shoulders, pockets) make it look like the work of Tom Ford to me (though I could be wrong). I'd settle with this "designer junk" anyday

I agree. I don't like it in live action. Comics, its easier to accept. It's an eye sore on a real person.

Still wouldnt want that hair in MOS. It also looks brightened, like in the 80s.

I still find it funny that his hair outside of the film looks more like Superman's to me.

Anyone going to make a manip?

It could be Ford's Wetherby line. Ford is actually the only designer I really like. The way he cuts his suits is actually very traditional and similar to classic Savile Row. Who else can you think of who still uses double English pleats and has the good sense to match low rise pants with a lower button stance so that shirt doesn't show under a closed jacket button. I still stand by my statement that most designer suits are overpriced junk.

Agree. I think it's because he normally parts his hair in the other direction. You can see it fighting to lay like it normally does. That's why it's flopping in front like that.

I see what youre saying. Yeah, it is trying to go back. I do appreciate the effort but it doesn't make it this time. I'm a fan who is satisfied with what we have in MOS over something like that.

Apart from it being a matter of personal taste (to each their own), this also comes down to 'traditionalists' vs 'experimentalists'.

I for one generally like the curl or 'spit curl' look if:

- That's the way someone's hair somewhat naturally flows/sits
- Isn't too forced

Also I happen to side with the traditionalists as far as Superman's look or coiffure is concerned. This is how it's usually been since 1938 and if it ain't broke there's no need to fix it. It is one of the things that makes the character visually unique.

No argument there. Except maybe that this feature, and a lot of other idiosyncrasies you can find in this suit, are largely inspired by Zegna's mainline, wich happens to actually manufacture most of the Tom Ford's garnements. Therefore I must admit that I don't quite get the Savile Row comparision, if at all. Maybe at the very least could I see some similarities with some of the recent Richard James garnements but that would be all.

Anyways there are things you would never (or rarely) find in a contemporary Savile Row suit such as those pretty imposing shoulders (wich seems to be Ford's most notable signature to date) on someone as built as Cavill especially in combination with a jacket that is almost too tight in the waist area. Those outrageously big lapels on a two button jacket would be considered a disgrace by any Savile Row tailor. On top of that, the vest seems too big, hence that unsightly fold/crease coming from the top button. If this is indeed a bespoke suit, you'd get your butt kicked out of Savile Row for a job like that.

Clearly Tom Ford's styling is not for everyone. His fit even less so and I don't think this suit quit gives Cavill's build justice nor that Cavill's gives Tom Ford's work justice.

They make a good couple.

But if Gina ends up play WW in the Justice League movie, Clark and Diana better not hook up.

This is like one instance in the entire history of comic book movies that the internet was actually pretty spot-on with their fan-casting.
