Henry Cavill’s Superman dons a suit inspired by the 1940s Max Fleischer in a stunning new fan edit.
The first ever animated appearance of Superman occurred all the way back in the 1940s with the cartoons from Max Fleischer. These Superman cartoons would go on to have a long-lasting legacy and heavily influenced future DC Comics animated projects like Batman: The Animated Series. Since then, Superman has also had several cinematic interpretations with Henry Cavill’s version being the most recent.
The Superman suits that Henry Cavill has worn as the Last Son of Krypton feature a darker hue of the iconic blue and red color scheme, no underwear, and a slight change to the iconic “S” symbol on the chest. If Cavill returns as Superman in the DC Extended Universe, he could be given another costume makeover. A new concept design from digital artist “jscomicart” on Instagram imagines Cavill’s Superman wearing a suit based on the iconic Max Fleischer cartoons. You can check out the artwork below.

Henry Cavill’s Superman will next be seen in Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut on HBO Max. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
