A concept design for a potential Man of Steel 2 imagines Henry Cavill’s Superman with a classic suit.
Bringing superhero suits to the big screen is no easy feat, with costume designers balancing a fine line between honoring the comics while staying true to the theme of the film (or TV show). When Henry Cavill wore his version of the Superman costume for Man of Steel, the Zack Snyder-directed film brought a modern take on the suit while exploring the Kryptonian culture a little further. And although Cavill’s future as Superman feels a little in doubt, this artwork depicts the British actor sporting the classic look for a follow up to Man of Steel.
The fan art comes from Instagram user “jph_photoshop” and gives Henry Cavill’s Superman costume a brighter blue suit complete with the red trunks and yellow belt from the comics. While the iconic ‘S’ on his chest matches the look of other versions of the hero fans have seen in film and TV, like Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh and Tyler Hoechlin. The hero himself will next be seen in The CW’s Superman and Lois, which follows Clark Kent and Lois Lane trying to manage their respective, complicated lives as well as running a family. Take a look at Henry Cavill with a new suit for Man of Steel 2 below.
