    The cape attachment, neckline and logo are pretty good. I'm surprised it actually has trunks.

    The filmmakers had originally ditched them, something Cage was more than happy with; but when he showed pictures of the suit to his 7-year-old son, his first reaction was: "where are the trunks?" And, as a result, Cage personally asked the costume department to put them back on.

    Indeed. I remember Cage stating just that on the Tonight Show during the late '90's about his son being adamant that the trunks be re-instated into the costume when Leno brought up Cage's signing up to play Superman.

    Interesting. Also, the serif of the S reminds me of the George Reeves S.

    How is it? What are the differences between it and Kevin Smith's and Dan Gilroy's drafts? Some elements that stand out?

    It's weird, I actually think it looks quite decent, and Cage doesn't look that bad. The S looks great actually, I'd like to see it in colour.

    I still can't see him as Superman but ill always wonder what if?!

    On the Dan Gilroy script I actually thought it was pretty decent, the opening on Krypton seemed very much like a horror movie though (which I didn't mind) but the script after the midway point does start to go off a little but I don't think that was the final draft. It's also really quite different to Smiths script.

    Its been a while since I've read it but from I what I can remember it had a lot of elements that you have seen in the concept art. Mainly the idea that Brainiac is just a green head on a triangular pedestal. If you want to read it I can PM you the script. I've been meaning to go back and read it.

    BTW does anyone have any idea of where the recent pic of Nic Cage as Superman comes from? It looks like it was taken from a book...

    Any chance of making that bigger, like the original size: 2378x1781?

    I think the Cage Suit avoided the undies, Peters thought the suit was pink enough as it is.

    It really is one of those things where you can't help but wonder isn't it?

    Maybe one day they could animate it.

    I originally heard that this was the costume for Tim Burtons film (but then someone said this was the flyby costume).....this looks like the one Cage is wearing without the trunks.
