A new photo has been making the internet rounds of Henry Cavill in his new Superman suit from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the very first photo was released officially before Comic-Con, the latest is a leaked photo from the set with Cavill wearing a robe on top.
Movie Pilot explains to us what makes this new suit a bit better though giving us a story behind it possibly. What could it be? Read on!
Previous photo comparisons have shown some minor differences; his symbol is a tad further down his chest, his cape sits slightly differently on his shoulders, and the ribbing around his waist shows some changes.
This new, better look at the suit shows something else, as well. This is clearly heavily shaded to make Cavill appear even more muscular, which seems a little unnecessary, given the body that he is starting with!
It's an interesting choice, and could mean a couple of things.
In comic book art, it's common for characters to appear much bulkier when fighting than when in their street identities (which makes perfect sense), and also to appear more muscular when winning a battle than when getting their butts kicked. Could this be an attempt by the costuming department to replicate that? I'm a huge fan of effects that mimic the style of comics, and this would be a really great and subtle way to do that.

What do you think of the new suit? Is it what you were expecting or would you rather have something similar to the New 52 Superman from DC comics?
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is coming to theaters on March 25, 2016.
