Superman: Man Of Steel Costume Comparison by thedreaded1 Superman: Man Of Steel Costume Comparison by thedreaded1
On a Superman kick right now. A side-by-side shot to compare the costumes. Used the modern materials on the MOS suit and applied it on the classic uniform.

Edit: Adjusted the cape and boots to resemble the standard suit.

Honestly, I feel that they made the right call. The suit, in the movie that is, was something from Krypton instead of being homemade. It looks like it was made in the struggling civilization Krypton was. In Batman v. Superman, I hope the costume becomes a bit brighter, maybe add some more yellow, but other than that, I don't think the costume needs briefs.(I'm not opposed to them, but it's not something I demand they add.) They may or may not work on screen...idk. Btw, I personally like the longer cape. 

 Back when Supes was first made, I'd think people would've understood the briefs.(Strongmen would wear them...) How many people would honestly know that now? Superman's suit has gone through many changes, the suits changes tons of times, the colors have changed in shades and hues. So now they decided to remove the briefs. I can get why people wouldn't like the change, they're iconic and they've always been around, but I don't think it's as bad as people think. It's a new take on Superman's costume. Things have to change eventually. If I was a hero, I wouldn't want to wear the same thing for the entirety of my career.

Though, I would say I'd like to see the Superman curl.

With just a little more effort the movie costume could have looked so much better! :(

i like the new suit, it still looks a bit like the classic, but more alien

I believe the reason they made the suit like that, is to make it appear more alien.Which is why its a full body armor suit, instead of his classic hand made costume. Plus the reason they changed the suit might be so that it appeals to everyone.

My take on Superman's costume (which Martha made by unraveling his blanket) was that, while Batman needed people to be afraid of him, Superman needed people NOT to fear him.  The suit, with the briefs and the cape, were evocative of the circus, the bright colors of fun and childlike charm.  I'd have preferred the suit on the right.  But then, I disagree with just about everything from the movie.
