Check out Henry Cavill as Superman. Chris Nolan and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel won't arrive until June 2013, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited about a ridiculously good looking Brit in tights.

Check out the cast details here; they've just added Lawrence Fishburne as The Daily Planet's editor-in-chief, Perry White. Here's my coverage of Cavill's appearance at ComicCon to talk Man of Steel and Immortals.

    The 'S' looks just FINE the way it is!

    I don't care for the 'dimpling texture', and I wish it sported the red trunks, but overall, I have to give this costume a two thumbs up! The design of the 'S' shield itself hearkens back to a Golden Age version. The cape, the way it attaches to his shoulders is very faithful to comic book tradition. Cavill himself looks fantastic.

    The photo alone is over and above ten times better than the first released photo of Routh suited up in his dinky looking swimsuit.

    This guy looks like Superman!

    That 'S' looks too big... back to the drawing board fellas.

    You know, when Christian Bale put on the pointy ears he almost instantly became the favorite Batman of a generation. I think that Henry Cavill can do the same if the movie is good. The cape can be passed from Reeve. Just curious, who is your favorite actor to play Supes?
