We are given a special treat as filming continues in Piano, Illinois. The first pics of Superman surfaces as he makes his way through Smallville. Now when the first promotional picture surfaced online the Superman fan geekdom went into an uproar. I should know, I’m one of them. Hundreds of comments were made regarding Superman’s new duds. Mostly positive, but we were left in the dark regarding some things about the new suit. What’s the extra material on his legs and arms, why is his cape so freaking long, is he wearing his undies on the outside, and why is his hair styled like a member of the Jersey Shore? I wish I was exagerating, but fans take their heros very seriously. Production was careful to mute the colors, and use shadows to hide elements of his costume “red underwear”. Theses pics gives us a new hint about this new suit. There is no yellow “S” on the back of his cape. Interesting, many shows and cartoons remove the “S” because it’s harder to recreate in animation or CGI. It’s still too early to really speculate, but everything looks great so far.
Opens June 14 2013. Starring Henry Cavil, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne. Directed by Zack Snyder.
