First Look at Jor-El and Faora’s Costumes From Man of Steel

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything significant from director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, but changes that with the first photos of Jor-El and Faora’s costumes from Licensing Expo 2012 in Las Vegas. There are also new shots of Superman’s updated suit.

Jor-El is, of course, Superman’s Kryptonian father (played in the franchise reboot by Russell Crowe), while Faora is General Zod’s Kryptonian henchwoman (played by Antje Traue). The photos are taken through glass, so they’re not terrific. Still, they’re probably the most we’re going to get until Comic-Con International, where we’ll probably see honest-to-goodness footage from the film. Probably.

Written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer and Christopher Nolan, Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Ayelet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Antje Traue as Faora, Harry Lennix as General Swanwick and Christopher Meloni as Col. Hardy. The film opens June 14, 2013.

    I can’t wait, they filmed right near my office in Plano and Yorkville IL.

    Sitting in that display case I REALLY like the new Superman suit now. It’s better than the New 52 suit.

  • Lastnamecumbie

    The movies sounds really good and I like the costumes.

  • Thalia

    I like them but they look a tad overdone to me, bet they will look amazing on screen

  • Ben Gebhart

    The first thing I thought of when I saw that close-up of Superman’s costume was Chris Jericho’s Lite-Brite jacket…and now if Supes’ chest emblem doesn’t, at one point, dramatically ignite as John Williams score begins…

    …Well, I’ll be SORELY dissapointed. (Also: Better than New 52 costume; but so is mud-butt)

    Is it too much to ask to get a light hearted Superman movie? Enough hard-sci-fi and melodrama. Give me Superman Family Adventures the movie!

  • Greg Phillips

     No thanks.

  • Greg Phillips

    Supes’ and Jor-El’s costumes look pretty cool.

  • Jesse Cormier

    Fucking. Awesome. 

  • Ken Pierce

    Somewhere along the line I missed that this was a reboot and perhaps that was not necessary and instead more of a continuation where the second original film with Reeve left off.  I guess it seems corny to assume they could have made that work but oh well, I will surely enjoy it if the special effects are done properly and its more than just Superman versus bullets and bombs and oh yeah, Luthor.  So tired of Luthor in all these films – Superman does have some powerful villains so let’s use them.

    I don’t mind the suit from a distance, but up close…

  • Logan Dalton

    I’m a big fan of Faora’s armor. It kind of looks like Lorien Elves’ armor from The Two Towers. Hoping for epic slow mo aerial battles between Supes and Zod and his crew.

    I told Clark not to go to Aquaman’s tailor

    A little Cirque Du Soliel.

    Superman’s from Asgard now?

  • SuperCHOP!

    Uh… Every single Superman to date has been light hearted/Softcore ;).  Tis why they are going Hardcore now.

  • Red Mask

    It looks like a cross between the Romulans and the Skeksis from “The Dark Crystal”.

  • JoeKoffee

    Superman is SUPERman! He doesn’t need any pumping-up, techno-enhancements, nor any fake muscle-looking stuff to show us he’s powerful. I agree that the costumes made of simple cloth may not make the point of his Super-ness very well, and that they may be hard to pull off, regarding showing how impressive his physique should look. I have in mind something super-sciency, but still sleek, like maybe blue and red lamé, or something like silver foil, only red and blue, perhaps with some kind of inlaid or impressed pattern to give it texture. Yes, like Brandon Routh’s costume, only a wee bit more substantial-looking.  Such an outfit would be alien-looking and unlike standard Terran cloth; it would be form-fitting; and it would subtly give the impression of armor or impermeability, even though it would at the same time appear to be sheer.

    It certainly doesn’t scream Kryptonian to me. Those costumes look more like the outfit for a mythological villain than members of an advanced society of alien beings.

    Not impressed.

    Dose any one see a Chris Nolan Batman logo kind of embossed over Jor-El’s S-shield, I know I can’t be the only one dose any one think it might be a not so subliminal to go see the new Batman movie in theaters or buy the trilogy once this movie is released in theaters

  • Zenstrive

    a shade of batman…
