Otherworldly attack, and red trunks are back also added, “Seated and putting on one of his iconic red boots, Superman looks just about ready for action—and judging by the otherworldly attack we see taking place outside the window, Metropolis is going to need him.”

It’s also confirmed the red trunks are back.

“One noticeable detail is that Superman does once again have his red trunks, marking a change from the last version of the super suit we saw onscreen and following the continuing evolution of the suit in the comics,” states DC.Com.

The site adds, “The suit also seems like it’s a little more matte than we’ve seen recently, with an impressive ruby cape. We can’t wait to see it flowing onscreen!”
