Man of Steel Licensing Expo 2012 costume photos: Kryptonian fashion re-imagined. Take a closer look at the costumes for Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man Of Steel.
Look, up in the rafters! Is it a bird? A plane? No, it’s only a few Superman costumes.
One of the other big industry-related conventions every year (besides CinemaCon, Comic-Con) is the Licensing Expo, where product/brand owners show off their brands in hopes of licensing them to companies to make merchandise of all sorts.
Undoubtedly one the biggest blockbusters coming in 2013 is DC Comics/Warner Bros.’ Superman reboot, Man of Steel, so the studio isn’t wasting time promoting the flick.
It is known that Man of Steel will present a modernized version of Superman – as related to the new version of the character recently unveiled in DC Comics’ “New 52″ reboot. This includes a different backstory, slightly altered powers (more vulnerability) – and yes, new Superman logo design wardrobe changes as well.
The new costumes featured here belong to Superman’s Kryptonian birth father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe), the villain Faora (Antje Traue), and Superman himself (Henry Cavill). Taking from the “New 52″ revised mythology, Superman’s iconic suit is now made of a Kryptonian material and functions as a sort of protective garb; Jor-El’s suit has a regal (or holy) design to it, while Faora’s suit is clearly made for battle.
In a sense, Krypton will have fashion akin to something like a futuristic, alien medieval kingdom – with nobleman, knights, etc. It will be interesting to see how it plays onscreen.
We are now just a little over a month away from the release of Christopher Nolan’sThe Dark Knight Rises, but that also means we are likely just a little over a month away from our first look at Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. Because both movies are based on DC properties and Nolan served as producer on the latter, it is expected that the release of the new Batman film will also deliver the brand new Superman. Can’t wait to get our eyes on a possible teaser trailer.
