Look! On the Internet! It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Henry Cavill!

Henry Cavill as Superman (2012)

Jeff Wells talks a bit about the costume: the subdued reds, the criss-cross texture, the pleats of the cape. He's agin it. But he doesn't mention the most obvious deficiency:

This is a step back to George Reeves' Superman's hair. I‘ll gladly give up the red undies—which director Zack Snyder may in fact be doing. But the curl is as much part of Superman’s coiffure as muttonchops are to Wolverine.

I‘ll say this, though. I don’t know about Zack Snyder but at least Cavill looks like he means business.
