Get a good look at the suits from Man of Steel

Jun. 12, 2012by: Niki Stephens

We still have very little on MAN OF STEEL. We still also have another year before it releases in theaters on June 14, 2013.

There's a rumor that a teaser for the film will play before THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Don't get your hopes up though. There's no real solid evidence to support it. I have to say, it would be nice to see some sort of footage though.

For now, get a look at these costumes for the film. You've seen most of them in set photos, but this is a much closer look. These were seen at Licensing Expo 2012 in Las Vegas. The first one is for Faora played by Antje Traue, then Jor-El (Russell Crowe), and Superman (Henry Cavill).

Still on the fence about the lack of red underwear. Granted he's been through costume changes in the comics, but the traditional suit is so iconic, without it, it just kinda draws attention to his super junk...c'mon, I'm not the only one...

Im glad how Supes suit turned out. That scale look adds more of a tough look, rather than a stretchy cotton feminine look. The red underwear had to go. C'mon, its 2012. Not 1940. It's RED UNDERWEAR...who can really take that seriously now days? If I saw a guy in a suit with red undies over it. I would question myself if I really wanted to be saved by him.

I could have gone for a brighter blue and no scales, other than that it's not bad.

Hilariously ugly

I think it's funny people were so upset with the SUPERMAN RETURNS suit, because it was darker blue/too crimson/small shield, etc... before the movie came out.
It's weird that this suit is even MORE unique and there's almost nothing but praise. It's different from the iconic comic appearance, and that's what so many were mad about 7 years ago.
I'm happy I finally get a clearer picture of it, though. Been waiting for that.
I have no faith in this picture, because I hated Snyder's other

"Hilariously Ugly" seems to sum it up best. I hope the story is better than the look because if not, they might as well just re-release Green Lantern instead.

People just can't seem to accept change. We're not in the 80s anymore.

If you can see Superman's muscles and veins without Superman in the suit, it just goes to show how padded the thing is.

It's probably the mannequin it's posed on. I mean, they have to make it look imposing somehow without a person in it, they wouldn't just hang it on a hanger.

Didn't you see the set photos of Cavill on set out of costume? One thing you won't be able to say about this movie is that he didn't get jacked for it.

Sometimes change just plain sucks

Nobody says we have to be stuck in the 80s (even though Reeve's suit was designed in the 70s), but no one said they had to go in a Tim Burton-esque direction either.

Did it ever occur to any designer that Superman comes from Krypton? A crystal planet? Why not incorporate crystaline structures in his suit, rather than something reminiscent of a Michelin intertube?

Dark & Gritty goes with Superman in the same way that salsa goes with French Silk pie.

Jeez

The Superman suit looks ugly enough, but the Jor-El one is downright offensive to look at. It looks like something out of a bad sci-fi horror film (Even Horizon?). Sadly, the first Superman movie will probably still be the best interpretation of the character. I'm just wondering if "Man of Steel" will be worse than or just as bad as Superman Returns (or Superman III and IV).

It will be better than Returns - they didnt even get the character right in that movie - stalker and all. But nothing will beat the first 2 Reeve pictures. Done.

This is a tough one. I grew up with the Reeve movies and love them. I love the red undies and all. I am open to change though, and the new 52 Superman suit is actually pretty cool and updated enough, but not so much as to take away from who Superman is.
This suit is a bit of the new 52, the structure that is, but I think they needed a red belt to help offset all the blue. That being said I donít like the darker blue or red, as Superman should be brighter Ė BUT I also donít mind what I am

Loved Watchmen, 300 and yes, even Sucker Punch (which I thought was way under-rated), so all in all I am totally cool with everything I am seeing with this production!

Growing on me

I never thought I would say it...Its growing on me. People will hate, or claim that thy're "purists"
But what this really is, is a fresh take on something that has been done many times over. People disliked the Routh suit because of the red being to dark. Everyone loves the Reeves suit but it is basically a leotard, which wouldn't fly (no pun intended)with today's movie
going audience. I don't love the suit, but I like it cuz it's different. Lets just wait to see it on action before we

Looks like the Eradicator...

...with scales. The other ones look like Necromongers from Chronicles of Riddick. If the movie is good, however, I'll give it a shot. Superman deserves a good movie (dunno if Snyder is the guy to deliver, but it is on the assist by Nolan). I just hope to GOD they don't go all dark...Superman isn't dark (hell, I'd prefer the Superman for All Seasons 'origin'). Can't judge a movie on images, I'll wait and see.

I like them. It is, afterall, alien characters, who will wear these. And if they're going to update the franchise, updating the suits is necessary. And they've done good here. I mean, everybody seems to be ok with new Batman suit, which also looks like a battle armor, different than suits from Burton films.

I think it looks awesome, updated in all the right ways! I just hope they've got a great script, cause I know Snyder will bring it visually! Can't wait for the first teaser to appear, just to get a feel of it! :)

No disrespect to Cavill, and I hope he does the Superman name proud

But it would have been awesome seeing Routh in that costume, dude had the look down

the clothes dont make the man

I dont care much for the Super suit but i have to say it isnt as important as some people are saying. remember how radically different the Batman suit has changed from the iconic one. And dont get me started on Capt America. And remember how many folks bitched about Iron Man's triangle? in the end its the story that overrode all that and itll be the same here, provided the writing and acting are up to par.
