I suppose that's true.

Sometimes its easy to forget that the GA doesn't concern themselves with as much as we the fans do.

Its the trunks and the material itself. Supermans costume should look homemade, not alien. Let the rest of the mythology look alien. Thats one of the main points of Superman. Hes more human then alien in many aspects.

I don't see what the big deal about the presence of the trunks was to begin with.

everyone on Krypton wears a suit similar to that. Martha Kent isn't going to go to Krypton and make them. He wears it in honor of his home planet. Come one man...get with the program

Suit looks great in the photo. Some of the changes puzzled me, but the overall presentation of it is good.

It also has an alien feel to it, and I've always preferred the costume to be made of Kryptonian materials.

I like the Supermang suit. But I swear they came into my bedroom at night and made a mold of my crotch to use for Supermangs Cod Piece...

It must be to keep it non reflective. The Batman suit looks much better on screen than in real life... if the MOS suit looks that good in the case, it should look awesome on screen.

TDK suit, yes.


Green Lantern suit, no. It looked like a cartoon.

This is by far the best movie Superman suit. I so want this as a collector's item in my house.

Im loving the new pictures of the Superman suit and the other Kryptonian suits.

I agree that the textures are reminiscent of chain mail and Im digging that design choice.

Ain't it ironic on how just a day ago, we were all agitated by the lack of news/info/pictures and here we are getting good quality pictures of the costumes involved.lol

And on a side note, it's nice to see that it was more chainmail like in terms of the texture for the costume since I had originally thought that they were more like scales, the kind that you'd see on Spiderman's suit, from the first picture that was released.

By golden, silver, and bronze age standards, Superman's suit did look alien. Think of how Jor-El is usually dressed. It's only during the post crisis that there was a real difference between the Superman suit and Kryptonian attire.

Superman: Man of Steel. Costume designer Michael Wilkinson:

"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 with the blue/gray color and chainmail look. 'It has function and purpose and a logic to this fantastical world,' he added."

Love the chainmail look to it, The only thing I'm not loving is the striping down the sides.

Suit looks good, but I wish the shield looked like the official shield unveiling...



...if anything I just wish it were a smoother texture to separate itself from the rest of the suit.

I agree 110%!! This is by FAR the best looking Superman suit...I love it more than the Reeve suit. And I thought that suit was great for it's day...this is a whole new era of Superman. I'd love to have that case sitting in my living room!

This sounds perfect.

I knew there'd be function behind it, and I'm glad the suit itself will have origins in Krypton and not just sewed by Mrs. Kent.

I really hope that Snyder doesn't choose a color tone/filter for the film that de-saturates the colors for the suit like Singer did for SR.

Both of those costumes are gorgeous. That is easily the best Superman suit I've seen.

All of the comments here are such a big contrast to what I remember reading about when it comes to SR's costume or previous costume designs for unmade films.lol

Despite the frustration shown by a lot of fans for the removal of the trunks and costume design for the New 52 look, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that MOS's take is not receiving such backlash.
