Uhm, no. Even if its sculpted, it will be more or less obvious if someone who's not build at all tries to get into that suit. It would look different on a different body. The same Batsuit from TDK and TDKR looked different on Bale when he had different weight on.

Seems like it was molded to enhance the muscles he already had. Not make a skinny guy become muscular.

Look at the side on angle of the suit in the photo below, very little visible "molded muscle", it appears to be highly subtle especially in the abs area. From the image below, it seems that it was Cavill's bulk & muscle filled out the suit and exaggerated the muscle shapes.

Cavill definitely put on a solid 15 lbs of muscle post-Immortals but none of it shows in the suit.
I'd imagine the suit must have some sort of sculpted muscles or padding even if it's minimal but Cavill's bulk and frame definitely adds to the suit.

Here's another shot of the costume thats less than glamourous but shows some padding..

Exactly. The design is based on his body.

Instead of *****ing about not finding a certain discussion interesting, provide another topic for discussion. Problem solved.

Guys, it's not complicated. Have you ever worn a wet suit? It's 1/4 inch of polyurethane blended with spandex and lycra, like what Ryan Reynolds wore in Paper Man:




That's pretty much the closest thing to a straight-from-the-comics superhero suit that has been put on film since Reeve's Superman costume. And even that didn't show the sinewy musculature of Ryan's super toned physique:



(from an EW magazine that came out within months of him wrapping Paper Man)


So it should be common sense that a suit, like the one in Man of Steel, that is A) even thicker than the Paper Man one, B) has a harder skin and C) has molded musculature won't show the definition of Cavill's physique. It's common sense. Does he fill the suit out? Hell yeah. It looks great on him. But the muscle lines and veins are definitely not his.

That doesn't discount the work Cavill put into his body. He NEEDED to do that. Remember Affleck's physique in Daredevil? That was laughable. But the suit still made him look stacked

Does anyone have that picture of the suit when they put it on the skinny manequin? There was almost no muscle build.

The suit doesn't have much, if any, built in muscle.

Here's a better look at Cavill in his suit, compared with the image I posted above I am all but sure that it was his own body minus some enhancements:

If he was wearing a wet suit, you might have a point. But since he isn't, you don't.

Simo just posted one of it I think in spoiler tags above.

Oh, of course the veins popping out through the suit aren't real. Not sure what you mean by "muscle lines" though. The point is, this suit is not a muscle-suit like what Chris Evans wore for Human Torch in F4, it looks like it was made to complement an already buff body, Cavill's body to be exact.

But after all, this is a movie. I know we all like to believe that those characters we see in superhero films are real, but in the end of the day, certain things need to look good on screen. A little movie magic is required here and there.

The "padding" is for definition through the skin tight fabric. He has to fill out the suit, and he does

Honestly I can't name the last movie to show a character in a suit like that that didn't have an internal skeleton of musculature. It's their "safety net" just in case something happens to the actor.

You are wrong,this is a plastic doll similar to henrys body who wears the suit.

Yeah, I don't think anyone is seriously suggesting the veins popping through the suit are Cavill's.

I posted a bigger version and different angle above but here's this one:


Obviously you can see some "padding" in the abs and legs but I think it's all minimal to enhance Cavill's own muscles and bulk.

Curious though as to how thin the costume is and what its made of given how it looks to wrinkle easy even on the boots.

That's it. I just spent the last 10 minutes trying to find it.

This ends the conversation. There is very little, if any, padding at all.

The arms look radically different. The shoulders are tiny in comparison. There is almost no muscle definition in the torso. That's because it's taking the same of the mannequin almost exactly.

It's shocking, but the muscle on film is pretty much all Cavill.

They put that suit on a different mannequin, one that wasn't built for it, and it looked terrible. If I can find the pics ill post them, but its definitely not one size fits all.

Absolutely. People seem to forget that Cavill doesn't do most of his stunts, they have a team of stunt men on this movie. It's hard enough to find a stunt man that has the same look at the actor in the suit but to find one that has an almost identical body is near impossible. One of my buds is a stuntman on the Thor sequel and he told me the crew went nuts when they found the guy who is doubling for Hemsworth because they tested dozens before and none were close enough.

The musculature has to be in the suit to help the "movie magic" or it will look like two/three/four/ different people wearing it
