Let’s just say that Ben Affleck is experiencing some miraculous career rebirth.
The Man of Steel has found his real-life Lois Lane… from TV-landia!
Up, up and away indeed.
Shooting the new Superman movie is happening at a fast clip. To further whet the appetites of fanboys all over the world a couple of new photos of Henry Cavill (the new Superman) has been leaked to the public. The pictures show Cavill apparently rehearsing for a fight scene (there’s a guy wearing a black and white patterned suit that is used for tracking movement when adding effects in post-production). The new Supes costume is front and center and you can see that the costume designer may have nicked clothing material from the Spiderman reboot costume department because they both look eerily similar. The fish scales look may be the hot new thing going on right now and we just don’t know it.
The costume is certainly a huge departure from the classic Supes duds, and we’re not just talking of the material. There’s a lot of decorative embellishments on the torso and the red briefs have been removed from the costume. In place of the briefs is a far more revealing, and potentially controversial addition – that huge bulge. Women (and certainly a few men) will be imagining what’s underneath that industrial-sized codpiece. You can just imagine what it would look like in 3D, it could actually poke you in the eye!
