First official look at the new Superman... the Man of Steel

So this is it!  The new Superman that will hopefully last longer than just one film!  Above is the first official photo released of Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming Man of Steel.  Just click the picture to see an close up of the suit. 

I like it a lot.  It is dark, gritty, kind of 'ugly' what's going on around our hero.  Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan are doing a great job of casting and obviously designing.  The "S" on the chest is different from past Superman suits.  So too is the hair; a more slicked back look rather than the comb over.  The suit has a webbed look to it that makes look a lot cooler in my opinion than spandex.  The red is not so bright, making the hero appear meaner than usual.  It also looks like the standard red underwear above the pants are gone.  I'm loving this pic!  How about you guys?
