Henry Cavill Declares Donning His 'Superman' Man Of Steel Suit "Fantastic!"

Henry Cavill Declares Donning His 'Superman' <i>Man Of Steel</i> Suit "Fantastic!"

Henry Cavill has tried on the new suit! Follow the jump to hear Henry Cavill's brief words on the suit!

Continuing the awesome video clips by our friend and resident CBMer JDUKE25, I was about ready to log off when I stumbled across a video clip of Henry Cavill talking a bit about the new suit!

Oh and...he HAS tried it on apparently!

Note- You need to skip towards the very end of the video (8:49 to be exact) to hear Cavill talking about the new suit!

So guys and gals, what do you all think the new suit will look like?

By fantastic...does Cavill mean it will be fantastic in the "classic" sense or possibly in the sense that- "Hey it's something the audience has never quite seen before"

I definitely don't mind the classic suit...or even just slightly updated wouldn't be too bad.

Post your thoughts below. I know it isn't much...but hey it's something.

Alright guys/gals, this is probably old news. Just let me know and I'll take this one down. I'm logging off now.
JackDexx - 7/24/2011, 1:25 PM
so... do you know how many guys have been in that suit? that suit is a whore by now. not news.
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 1:27 PM
@JackDexx- Actually this IS news. It confirms he's tried on the suit and this is the first time he's actually talked a bit about it.

P862010 - 7/24/2011, 1:30 PM
he is talking about the suit for the movie not the reeve suit

only guys who would try it on would be henry
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 1:35 PM
@P862010- Thanks for the assist man! This new suit definitely won't be the Reeve version.

@nailbiter111- Thanks dude!! I will never be able to keep up with you and JDUKE's articles haha but hey I'm working on it. LOL
jazzman - 7/24/2011, 1:35 PM

hope the suit is fresh and new. Henry Cavill real is Superman he got the honesty and swagger like the Man of Steel i cant way bro.
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 1:38 PM
@jazzman- Ah man, you and I both dude! Something fresh and new would definitely be refreshing!
6of13 - 7/24/2011, 1:42 PM
I think it won't be 100% classic suit, but close. Maybe with the red speedos as part of the colouring and not a separate piece.
JDUKE25 - 7/24/2011, 1:42 PM
@LP4 nice dude! Yeah i'm hoping for something fresh and new.

Already posted this pic up in one my comment sections but this pic looks a lot like Cavill. I'm sure he'll look and do great as our new Superman.

Supes17 - 7/24/2011, 1:42 PM
What's up LP4?! Nice article bro
I actually prefer the new costume that DC gave Supes.
They shoul get rid of the knee pads though:p
A kryptonian that can survive a nuclear explosion needs knee pads?!
Come On!!!:)
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 1:45 PM
@6of13- Could be man! We'll see what the end product ends up being!

@JDUKE- Thanks bro =D

Man that pic you posted is GENIUS- that really is Cavill. And man, let's just hope for a really great film!!! ;D

@Superman17- I'm good man, thanks for the comment! Yeah the new suit in the rebooted comics isn't actually that bad! It's really starting to grow on me.
crimsoncrusader - 7/24/2011, 1:46 PM
Good stuff man. You and JDUKE25 have been all over Superman news for this year's ComicCon and I applaud you guys.
JDUKE25 - 7/24/2011, 1:46 PM
@Superman17 yeah man the new suit they've given Supes is looking better and better to me. Yeah, i could do with or without the pads lol.

Hellsing - 7/24/2011, 1:48 PM
well its cool he's tried on and stuff but its pretty obvious that he's going to call it fantastic he,s not exactly going to say its a piece of shit now is he
6of13 - 7/24/2011, 1:51 PM
Also, I think they should either get rid of the embossed logo or make is flatter - Clark needs to hide the costume under his work shirt.

Maybe stick with the belt from the revamped suit and add a little red to the trunks
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 1:52 PM
@crimsoncrusador- Hahaha thanks man for the props! But I give more props to JDUKE. That guy's been like...literally under Cavill's skin throughout ComiCon! =D

But again thanks man, it's always humbling to get a really cool compliment!

@JDUKE- Yeah bro, that picture you just posted...that picture just looks soooo [frick]ing cool!!!

@Hellsing- I think i'd laugh if Henry actually said it looked like a piece of shit. lol I'd applaud him for his honesty. Let's hope when he said it's "fantastic" that he was being REAL with us ;D
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 1:53 PM
@6of13- Yeah man, I never went for the bubbly "S" from Superman Returns and Smallville.

I can't believe in terms of media THAT has become his new permanent fashion statement. lol
6of13 - 7/24/2011, 2:08 PM
The new suit makes him look so much more serious. Also, the suit needs some texture.

LP4 - 7/24/2011, 2:10 PM
@JackDexx- Adding to my earlier response to you, where I WILL actually agree with you is that the suit has become a "whore" of sorts. But definitely not the regular Superman suit.

I'm talking about the suit from Superman Returns. I was never really a huge fan of that suit and its bubbly "S" but then...it somehow made its way into the SMALLVILLE series and i was like "WTF? When can we actually go back to the REAL Superman suit instead of this one?

THIS is the "whore" version of the classic Superman suit.

It made it into the big screen film in 2006 and then invaded Smallville and of course made it into certain comic books- (those that are based on the Superman Returns film) I say- NO MORE OF IT. This suit should never ever see the light of day again.
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 2:13 PM
@6of13- Nice pics man!

Here's another one I'd like for the new movie

6of13 - 7/24/2011, 2:22 PM
The Returns suit looks very flat in colour. Nothing wrong in adding in a few shades of into the design. I think the suit in the new movie should look less spandexy.

LP@: The embossed logo in SR looked way to much like plastic/rubber. I don't know, but maybe it should have a kind of metallic lustre to it.
6of13 - 7/24/2011, 2:23 PM
edit: *shades of colour
YourMomNaked - 7/24/2011, 3:35 PM
The suit may not, I repeat, MAY not disappoint, but he's still not nearly big enough to look convincingly super.
CaptainTall - 7/24/2011, 3:54 PM
This guy rocks.
KALel3412 - 7/24/2011, 7:33 PM
great find. i hope we get an updated version of the old iconic suit. which is the one snyder has said he likes.
Daniellantern - 7/24/2011, 9:30 PM
Wow! nice find @LP4
Hope we can see Cavill on the suit soon!
abw2 - 7/24/2011, 9:49 PM

Yeah, declarations, great. So when do we get to see him actually wearing the damn thing?!

l0rdleg0las - 7/24/2011, 10:21 PM
i want an updated suit that still keeps the feel of the classic suit.

i would hate to see a total revamp [frick]ed up new version.
CaptainTall - 7/24/2011, 10:25 PM
@LP4 and 60f13

.... no. Just.... no.
DCwanabe - 7/24/2011, 11:14 PM
I want to see the rebooted suit in this movie. Cool find I can't wait to see the new suit. I really think cavill is gonna nail this.
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 11:19 PM
@daniellantern- Thanks man! I know how you feel dude, the anticipation is KILLING US!!!!

@MegaMattMOS- Hahahaha ok i get it. Maybe they could use a suit more like the classic but also with some way for it to be updated just a tad bit...obviously maybe not as far-fetched as the ones me and 6of13 wanted but yeah.

The thing i like about the one i posted is...the idea is cool. It's a more alien/royal suit. With kryptonian lettering etched all along the seams of the suit. It's genius. But i do get...yeah...Supes aint royal but eh. It could still work to some degree for a rebooted movie.

@DCwanabe- Ahhhh i know man...the new suit is TAKING FOREVER!!! lol. But i agree with you dude- Cavill will OWN!!!! =D
luckylu - 7/25/2011, 12:15 AM
classic or bust
EarOne - 7/25/2011, 12:45 AM
LP4, i like the last one you found. the one with kryptonian writings on the belt...it's been around for quite some time now.

but, i still have some problem with the stiff-looking high neck-collar.

TheLight - 7/25/2011, 7:29 AM
He's being really cleaver not to speak too much about the new suit. Hopefully, it will resemble more of the classic threads with slightly updated modifications rather than that rebooted too much damn blue and red armor mess that's coming in September. Sorry guys, for those that like the new upcoming comic suit I have to say and this is simply my opinion, they could have done better.
DonnsTib - 7/25/2011, 9:16 AM
I agree the Superman Returns suit was bad. When Smallville got it that made it worse. How is someone not supposed to know that Clark is wearing that under his shirt? Not fond of the new DC redesign. Too stiff and military for my Superman tastes. Hope the new movie does the suit and the character justice.

In regards to the suit all we heard was "YES" "FANTASTIC" "NO"

Your over analyzing this way way way way way way way way way way too much.

Ask someone from Brittian how they feel about something. THEY ALL SAY "FANTASTIC"! It's like saying "IT'S COOL"

Thanks for waisting my time.
JackDexx - 7/25/2011, 5:00 PM
did you think he wasn't gonna wear the suit? it's not like john peters is on it. if we had pics of a changed suit then ya news. this.... no.
JackDexx - 7/25/2011, 5:01 PM
i want to see a new suit. no that would be news. the one from JL new frontier would be good. in a 30's or 50's era superman.
