Superhero Hype has posted some excellent new behind the scenes shots of Henry Cavill on the set of Man of Steel. No plot hints this time around, but they do represent the clearest view to date of Superman's new costume, sans cape at any rate. Again, the underwear is missing, not that we're too concerned about that. We're more interested in the unusual detailing on the sides of his suit, which can only be described as "futuristic" while using quotation marks. The suit is clearly alien in origin, but it does seem to rob Superman of a bit of humanity. He's an otherworldly thing here. Let's hope the rest of the film works overtime to make him a relatable human being, Kryptonian or no.
