Fresh from the 2012 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, Warner Bros. has brought with them a little treat: three costumes from Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel, and they’re pretty darn cool.
We’ve clearly seen Superman’s (Henry Cavill) costume before through set pictures and in the first official image released to the public but not so much that of Faora (General Zod’s second in command, played by Antje Traue) or Clark Kent’s biological father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe). Today though, courtesy of Coming Soon, we have some great pictures of a number of costumes from the much anticipated film.
It may not seem like it, but Man of Steel is set for a release date almost exactly one year from now (June 14, 2013 to be exact), so you know the folks behind the production are working feverishly. Snyder has been hard at work in the editing room since principal photography wrapped and now it’s just a matter of getting a glimpse at some footage, which if not shown in some capacity at Comic-Con, may debut along with The Dark Knight Rises, despite the studio claiming it won’t.
I personally love the Jor-El costume, which takes the traditional Superman look and blends it with a classical armour design, complete with some gorgeous detail.
Of course, I’m sure you’re all wondering when we’ll see the outfit of Michael Shannon’s villainous General Zod. I’d say don’t expect it anytime soon, it will be a closely guarded secret at Warner Bros. until closer to release.
Check out the costumes below and let us know what you think.
