A photo of Henry Cavill wearing Christopher Reeve’s iconic Superman costume has been revealed by director Zack Snyder.
Cavill wore the outfit when testing for the role of Superman in Man of Steel, and Snyder shared a photo from that test on Vero (via The Hollywood Reporter). “First test with Henry… I knew right away he was my Superman,” Synder said in a message accompanying the photo.
