    Hey! Here's an idea. When he's Clark, his hair's a dark brown, with brown eyes. For whatever reason, when he sports the uniform his hair is jet black, with blue eyes. Food for thought.

    @bawnian-dexeus Well, for now all you get is a scene where Clark will be riding a bicycle.

    @ejk1@superman81 I would however like to see an image of him ripping his shirt open to reveal the big S. Simply just to see how big he looks with regular attire over his suit, which without a doubt will be edited to make sure he doesn't look ridiculously bulked in his day to day clothing

    It will be a while until a teaser trailer is released, considering that this movie is not coming out until June 14th 2013.

    Sorry, Guys, but it's looking more and more like a major pass on this movie to me at THIS point. I will keep hope that a good teaser trailer will change my mind.

    @superman81 There isn't anything to bash here. Everything in these pics looks alright. But that wasn't the reason I didn't post here yesterday. I have been trying to take a break from looking at TDKR and Avenger stories so as not to spoil anything, and I decided to do the same with Man Of Steel. After the last batch of pictures where it looked to me like this was possibly going to be a retread of Superman 2, I decided to wait until I saw something special before I commented. I wouldn't expect a trailer of any kind for a while. December of this year is still about 18 months from the film's release.

    where is @ejk1? I figured he would be all over this. He is always usually the first one to say how these pics arent much and this doesnt tell us anything. I miss his constant bashing of this movie even though from what we have seen so far its shaping up to be pretty good. At least visual wise anyways. I hope a teaser trailer will be released sometime soon or this December perhaps.

    Henery Cavill almost looks like Christopher reeve. Freaky even though reeves superman has no connection with the new reboot.

    @combatmadness360 No. It is Superman's suit, just black and with the Zod's house symbol. In this film, those suits will be like some form of krypton bodysuit used for battle.

    @felipe-11 i think your right man - also you can just make out hes got a symbol mark on his chest too. if Zack snyder is doing it by family names mark should be epic as the S is for the family of L etc so should look badass. makes sense. or could be used in the movie as a war suit or something in krypton and superman adopts his and wears it with colours. possibilites are all there but hopefully nothing ott to draw away from main story. touches like that are epic to add on. like it.
