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

Henry Cavill as Superman

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:

Where's the curl?

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.
