What a way to kick off the week!

DC Studios, James Gunn, and Warner Bros. have officially revealed the costume for David Corenswet's Superman, the first film in the DCU.

It looks as if Clark is preparing to lace up his boots and patrol the Metropolis skyline in the image. While sitting, it clear that this newest version of the Man of Steel will have the superhero's iconic red trunks.

The first official image of the Superman suit comes likely due to the fact that filming is set to leave the behind-the-scenes confines of the Trilith Studios in Fayetteville, Georgia and film on-location in Macon and later on in Cleveland, Ohio.

At first blush, it looks as if the suit is heavily inspired by the Superman suit from the 2011 DC Comics' New 52 reboot, with slight variations.

Superman official suit

As mentioned above, Superman, formerly titled Superman: Legacy, is currently filming at a private, heavily-guarded sound stage in Atlanta, which accounts for the lack of set pics and leaks that usually accompany big-budget comic book movies.

In addition to the on-location filming in Macon, Georgia, the cast and crew will also be traveling to Ohio soon, where they'll likely shoot at a site that could potentially be used for the Hall of Justice.

It seems Gun will be pulling double-duty over the next few months, as he'll also be helming a few episodes of Peacemaker season 2, which is also filming at Trillith.

With cameras set to film out in the open soon, the hope among the fandom is that Gunn and DC Studios will soon reveal the first, official full look at Corenswet's Man of Steel costume.

It was hoped that the reveal would come on the anniversary of the release of Action Comics #1 but while Gunn did share a social media post with Corsenwet and Rachel Brosnahan, the suit was not revealed.

The James Gunn-directed (and written) film stars David Corenswet as Kal-El/Clark Kent, Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific.

Rounding out the cast are Sean Gunn as Maxwell Lord, María Gabriela de Faría as Angela Spica/The Engineer, Terence Rosemore as Otis, Wendell Pierce as Perry White, Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

Additionally, Nicholas Hoult has been confirmed by Gunn to portray Lex Luthor in the film. Milly Alcock was also recently cast as Supergirl and is also expected (but unconfirmed) to appear in Legacy, as well.

More recently Pruitt Taylor Vince was cast as Jonathan 'Pa' Kent, while Neva Howell signed on to play Martha 'Ma' Kent.

Currently set for release on July 11, 2025, Superman: Legacy Superman is the first film in Gunn's reboot of the DCEU.

@SethBullock - is he’s wearing a turtleneck…

@TheNewYorker - its the new 52 collar basically. Its a costume merging different aspects of his career it seems. New 52 collar, man of steel style torso, kingdom come logo, reeves boots, fleischer trunks.

@SethBullock - It's okay. Kind of looks like a modified motorcycle suit.

@SethBullock - I like how the crotch area is obscure again....like how it was when they first revealed Cavill's back in 2011/12
UniqNo
UniqNo - 5/6/2024, 1:06 PM
@SethBullock - Cavill's 1st suit was much better...as was the first reveal photo

I know it's live action but I'm getting a Romita jr art vibe.

@UniqNo - you can clearly see the red trunks.

@philinterrupted - there's a shade of red there for sure, but 'clearly'??? C'mon. That could he lighting or another modification.

@SethBullock - I see what Gunn is doing. He’s deliberately showing us the official “glimpse” of the suit but not in its full glory. Notice how dirty and grubby it looks. It’s a crude take on the new costume but overtime we will see better stills and angles of it. This was strategically done to generate a reaction that will lead to something more appealing perhaps.

@philinterrupted - where’s wolverine blue trunks in movie costume? ?feature=shared
It proves underwear on costume doesn’t make hero people complain about Superman costume trunks but not wolverine especially red belt and black spikes

@blitzburgh - I'm not happy because suit looks like sh*t and so does the actor despite being a Cavill clone.

MoS had many many flaws but at least it looked mostly good, Cavill looked amazing and so did the suit for the most part except for maybe the lack of trunks, which would be debatable.

This just looks awful, everything on it, not a single thing looks good, and I don't say this as an attack to the actor, I think the casting has been pretty good so far for the most part including the actors for the main roles, but this is just the worst looking Superman suit I can remember in any media, and even the hair looks bad, lol.

@blitzburgh - I love it. Don't care what anyone says. It's basically the original comic suit and that's a win for me. If the movie is good no one is going to care just like they didn't with Whedon's Cap suit in Avengers. I am officially excited about this.

@Doomsday8888 - pretty much how i feel. not mad, just disappointed. as others have said, the CW suit is better, which is not a good thing.

Superspecialawesomeguy - 5/6/2024, 12:49 PM
@Doomsday8888 - Tbf, I think it might be some kind of homemade/prototype suit, considering the original logo James released looks different to the one above imo.

@Doomsday8888 - I also think a lot of folks don't realize that this is just a photo, not them showing off the suit properly in the movie. The days when they do that he will have to be working out like crazy prior, and they won't be highlighting him at angles where the suit looks looser than ideal. The designs on the suit otherwise, I can understand some complaints, but it's just someone else's comic book run; everyone always acts like it's the new definitive version.
UniqNo
UniqNo - 5/6/2024, 1:49 PM
@Superspecialawesomeguy - different how? I think it's either the quality of the photo that's different..

Either way I hope there's a second suit at least. But for a first go around I suppose it's better than this reveal.

@Superspecialawesomeguy - That is what thought. Those two S symbols are not the from the same outfit.

So my guess is this is homemade and he gets a new one at the end of the minute
Superspecialawesomeguy
Superspecialawesomeguy - 5/6/2024, 2:50 PM
@UniqNo - Well the original logo that Gunn looks more textured for one thing, it also looks more form-fitting similar to the MOS suit, while this new one doesn't appear to hug to his body as much; reminds me more of Tyler Hoechlin's suit than anything else.

Althought this could just be me looking to much into this lol.

@UniqNo - erm it legit looks worse than the returns suit.
UniqNo
UniqNo - 5/6/2024, 4:20 PM
@DeadClunge - the first reveal I meant. I agree. The returns suit was decent. The small S and the boots were my only gripes. I didn't mind the darker red on the cape.

@Superspecialawesomeguy -

I think you are right because the close up photo has yellow outline and is more angular compared to the full suit shot which doesn’t have yellow outline and is rounded on the edges.
CaptainFlapjaks
CaptainFlapjaks - 5/7/2024, 9:38 AM
@HulkisHoly - it does have the yellow outline. You just have to zoom on it to see it. The teaser photo is also zoomed in on thr logo itself so the yellow outline is more noticeable
HulkisHoly
HulkisHoly - 5/7/2024, 1:27 PM
@CaptainFlapjaks -

Yeah, I see what you are saying now.
CaptainFlapjaks
CaptainFlapjaks - 5/7/2024, 10:32 PM
@HulkisHoly - however, i do think there will be a prototype suit. Whether this is it or not shall be seen. Thinking it will be more like a sweater, cape, and bike helmet with goggles. But perhaps the costume looks like cosplay as some are saying. Maybe that was the inspiration? Maybe ma kent actually makes the suit in this version and therefore it looks like a homemade cosplay suit. If its gonns be homemade, albiet by an old lady, it has to be belieavable that it was made by one. So perhaps that was gunns way of saying this is for sure homemade. It looks homemade cause its supposed to.
HulkisHoly
HulkisHoly - 5/8/2024, 12:13 AM
@CaptainFlapjaks -

It looks more homemade than previous suits and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s just hard to get right for Superman.

@Knightstar - Yeah, I'm not feeling the suit either. The boots look good, the cape looks pretty standard, but that damn turtle neck region and how loose the bodysuit is, I'm not convinced. Even David doesn't look like he likes it either😂.


This actually looks like a James Gunn suit, not a Superman suit.
