The video is about 4 minutes long. While it's a good interview, he doesn't get into specifics, but does say that the Man of Steel suit has indeed been tweaked and he's been working on the suits and the project since May of last year, he said he thinks it's an improvement over the last suit (not that it was "bad") and that he will be in Detroit for the shoot starting next month until December. ...and to expect WB to release the pictures of Batman and Wonder Woman along with Henry Cavill in the new Superman suit before the movie is released (well duh), but if you watch his mouth he almost says "before shooting" but very professionally catches himself and says something safe and obvious that we all know which is that they will be released before the film.

EDIT: My dumbass does know how to post a video now, thanks to Luminus. Thank you, Luminus!

First! yeah I caught what he was going to say as well but caught himself, very professional.

Shooting in Detroit from April until December suggests that this is actually a Justice League movie.
Arrowhead77 - 3/5/2014, 10:27 PM
Man, I want specifics! And Pics.
MileyAbominationClone - 3/5/2014, 10:33 PM
All right, who do I have have to sleep with to see the suits!
DlAMONDZ - 3/5/2014, 10:42 PM
Isn't Cavill supposed to rock a new cut in the movie, or was that just a rumor?
Also need those pics ASAP!!!
Tony93 - 3/5/2014, 10:43 PM
the suits will be released at comic con along with the official movie still
Tony93 - 3/5/2014, 10:43 PM

Starfox - 3/5/2014, 10:50 PM

Just click SHARE and then EMBED. It will give you the code. Like so:

I can't wait until the suits for Batman and Wonder Woman are shown. Also does this prove that B/S really will be shot with Justice League too. I really hope so.
PsyGuy - 3/5/2014, 11:10 PM
His answer to when we'll see the suit is "before the movie comes out"
Thanks for narrowing it down
batmanvsuperman - 3/5/2014, 11:20 PM
He did slip he was going to say they will release the pics before they start filming
l0rdleg0las - 3/5/2014, 11:53 PM
I think it is a matter of weeks. With Man of Steel the first official image came out within days of the movie beginning filming.

Since May? Very interesting
DCfan638 - 3/6/2014, 12:53 AM
That was to create hype; I think this has hype enough right now.
They will release it when it will be most to their advantage.

Thank you, Luminus.

Have a feeling Supes' suit will look less alien. May have the yellow belt.
SuperCat - 3/6/2014, 4:19 AM

SuperCat - God I hope so, man.

In terms of the supes twweks it will be brighter cos zack has brought in a new cinematographer for the movie who worked on dark city, cos we need to remember that batman only comes out at night most times and so superman suit will need to be brighter in the dark. Lighting effect will be crucial for this movie and perhaps that's why they are still testing the lighting.

As for the bat suit l expect his cape to be CGI like supes cape in man of steel

Wonder women suit will be motion captured just like zod suit in man of steel so, l just don't think she will wear the full armour on set apart from the sword.
Nubase - 3/6/2014, 6:44 AM
@MrBlackJack

Your right cos ben Affleck said they he was brought in to look at what zack was creating for the sequel before MOS was even released and said that he was stunned by what he saw, he said he needed convincing cos he was a fan of the dark knight trilogy and felt that we did not need another batman but was swayed by the fact that he will be playing a older battle weary bats instead of a younger one.

Gusto ain't been hard in 45 years!
Klone - 3/6/2014, 7:12 AM
Why the [frick] have I now got a clone? Ah well, it's been funnier though. I recall one time levi returned after 3 minutes to find an "Anti-LEVITIKUZ" user.
Arrowhead77 - 3/6/2014, 7:22 AM
MAC>MAK....?

At least the Miley one is funny!
Nomis - 3/6/2014, 8:06 AM
Man, Let's get this DONE!!!
Klone - 3/6/2014, 8:24 AM
@Arrowhead

That's because he/she is trying to be a humorous/light character on purpose.
JediPhilosopher - 3/6/2014, 9:14 AM
I have SOME hope for how Superman will be portrayed in this one. His suit isn't one of my bigger concerns. It's his character. He needs to come through as the man who cares about human lives so much and assumes the responsibility to protect them when they can't, that he get's actually strategic about it. It should change his tactics. He should have tactics. He should be well-spoken, intelligent. I didn't get some of these things from the first one, but the first one spent so much time having him aimlessly punch Zod, so there wasn't much time for these unimportant details. And it was his first day, after all, at age 30+ years old. Of course.
CommanderShepard - 3/6/2014, 9:34 AM
@MAK

and he/she is already more likable.
Dev7 - 3/6/2014, 9:45 AM
So according to the logic of these posts we'll get official pics of the suits this year for a movie coming out in 2016?

Am I missing something? Were there suit pics reveals for Avengers 2 last year such as Scarlet Witch or Quick Silver, 2 years before the movie was released?
ChrisEl - 3/6/2014, 12:41 PM
MOS was filmed over quite a long period of time as well, August 2011 through February 2012. These long periods of time don't indicate that a second film is being produced.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/6/2014, 12:45 PM
I'm actually more excited to see the Superman suit
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/6/2014, 12:47 PM
Henry understands the Superman character more than Goyer - FACT
TheCaptain - 3/6/2014, 2:50 PM
Supes suit SHOULD LOOK less alien. If he wants the people of Earth to think he is here to protect them, he should get a slightly more colorful, less alien costume. Plus brighter colored is the way to go, so Superman will contrast with Batman.
