The first official image from Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel gave us a pretty good look at the new costume. There was a bigger emblem, gigantic cape, textured suit, and as we later learned, no external underwear. New set photos have leaked online and they reveal a few new details about the redesigned outfit. There’s a better look at the wristbands, piping on the legs, and a quasi-belt. I’m sure plenty of folks will have opinions on these changes and all I’ll say is that remember we haven’t seen how this has been photographed or how it works in motion. Also, it doesn’t look like this so let’s be thankful for small favors.
Hit the jump to check out the set photos (there’s nothing that spoils the film; it’s just shots of Henry Cavill in costume). The film also stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Julia Ormand, Harry Lennix, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens June 14, 2013.

Here’s the synopsis for Man of Steel:
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
