First Look at Superman's New Costume

Filming in the street usually means lots and lots of photo opportunities which allow us to catch a glimpse of what a movie like "Man of Steel" will look like. Some weeks ago Warner Brothers released the first official image of Henry Cavill as Superman, but the dark texture of the image didn't allow for a clear look at the suit. Now, thanks to the heroic efforts of some anonymous photographer, we get a much better look at the Superman suit. It's easy to notice that the design has suffered some modifications, but nothing too drastic. It actually looks pretty cool. First thing I noticed was that the yellow belt is gone, allowing for a more streamlined costume design. Overall, the suit has a very modern feel to it, which is a good thing. I'm just curious as to why in one picture he has the red cape on and in the other, no cape. Is it possible that in some scenes the cape will be added through CGI ?

"Man of Steel" is directed by Zack Snyder ("300", "Watchmen") and produced by Christopher Nolan ("The Dark Knight", "Inception"), with a production budget estimated at $175M. Beside Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, the movie also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Marha Kent, Julia Ormand as Lara Lor-Van and Russell Crowe as Jor-El. Scheduled for release on June 14, 2013.
