Ten days after lead star Henry Cavill was spotted in costume from a distance on the Kent Farm, some more set photos of the actor has hit online from Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. And these latest close-up shots have Cavill in his Superman attire without the cape that fans have been discussing the past month. Check them out below courtesy of SHH and sound off with your opinions. Our friend Rob Worley also recently posted some important Smallville landmarks on his own blog, Backlotd.

The film will star Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Julia Ormond, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix and Laurence Fishburne. Director Snyder is leading the production based on a screenplay by David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan.

The hair is a little taimer, the costume look to be more along the lines of the "52" reboot, so I figure DC must have given them concept art to base the suit on. All in all, it's looking a little bit better, but I'm still concerned that the cape is a bit too long.

  I like it. It's a cool take on the costume. I also like the long cape. I've always thought that Superman should have a longer cape. 


And man, does he ever look the part!

Am I missing something? I don't even see a cape in any of these shots. So who cares about the length if he is only wearing it in dialogue scenes? Unless they are going to CGI the cape for the action shots...either way not sure how much of an issue it will be.

I kinda like it.  I actually like the fact that he doesn't have that stupid spitcurl.  However, I'm sure someone will complain about that in 3... 2... 1...

I love it... This looks very Kryptonian, and I gotta say, Cavill may be the most spot on Supes (face and build) yet!  Finally getting jacked for this...

Oh and Jarrod, got to spend some of my summer vacation helping my cousin with his website (non genre MMA news)... and let me just say that I have a new found respect for you... I'm actually pretty impressed at how you "plant your feet" on certain stories and operate under some standards.  I was blown away by the amount of shit that goes into posting a single story, and unfortunately got a taste of what happens when you aren't careful and don't double check the work... not to mention the fact that you seem to be doing 90% of this on your own.  This is still the first site I visit every morning for a reason, so thanks.  

All right enough nut hugging, back on topic... the only reservation I have about this film is the villains... (not that I'm hating on ZOD, cause I'm actually down with that)... just would have liked to have seen someone like Brainiac.

iceknight52 the cape ref are from the other pics of Cavill in the suit, and I don't mind the long, Darth Vader had a long ass cape. To me a long cape kinda seems more like normal clothing rather than a piece of fabric someone forgot to cut off. My only hissy is the S or "El" on his chest could be brighter, maybe he just flew through an oil rig in these shots.

Socks down the front of his undies or what?

Other than that attempt of humour, I'm liking the look of this movie now.  It appears to be, dare I say "Darker" than usual.

Damn! Does he really have that much muscle or is it the suit? That's actually more beef than I prefer on my Supes but what the hell?

The suit is interesting. Still not sure I like it.

More about the suit. From what is shown of Faora in the previous spy photos, she was also wearing a cape and ablack costume of similar fabric. I'm thinking this is actually standard Kryptonian garb in this movie's version of the mythos and not a "costume" that Supes is wearing. Don't know if the classic insignia is still a family crest like in the Donner films or if he is intending to wear an "S" on his chest.

Wait and see.

looking foward for this, I guess the cape will be digitaly added, the only problem is that my mind is so used to the briefs over tights image that when I watch this costume it feels incomplete.
