Henry Cavill Looks Great In A Christopher Reeve-Style Superman Suit

Christopher Reeve will always be Superman to me, but I have to admit that Henry Cavill looks great in a replica of his suit (though the black and white probably helps). Zack Snyder recently shared the photo on Vero, which was taken during a screen test for Man of Steel. Apparently, his ability to wear the suit without looking like an idiot was instrumental in Cavill landing the role:

“If you can put on that suit and pull it off,” he explained. “[T]hat’s an awesome achievement. […] He walked out, and no one laughed. Other actors put that suit on, and it’s a joke, even if they’re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go ‘Wow.’ Okay: This was Superman.’”
