Henry Cavill has already shown that the new Superman is buffer than ever - with the help of some padding in his suit.
But as promotional pictures are released, there is one item of clothing that Superman's stylist seems to have forgotten.
While Cavill's suit is almost the spitting image of Christopher Reeve's 1978 model, the modern-day hero has gone commando.

His pair of red underwear was nowhere in sight onset, indicating that Superman may have stopped slipping them over his tights for good.
However another picture, which showed the pants back in full force, was also released, suggesting that perhaps producers are yet to decide on Superman's wardrobe.
And it looks like the underwear-free superhero could go down well with fans. One fansite called for the loss of the red briefs last year, writing: 'Please for the next Superman film... no red undies over his pants.'
However another fan posted on a website that they preferred the traditional red underwear: 'I'm sorry, but Superman without the underwear isn't Superman.'

If Superman has gone commando for good, it may be in the hope of looking hunkier.
It certainly worked when Henry Cavill was photographed on set this week, looking more Incredible Hulk than Superman as he displayed bulging biceps and his thunderous thighs on the set of Man Of Steel.
The British star filmed scenes in the small town of Plano, Illinois, which has been transformed into the fictional town of Smallville.

Crew members could be seen capturing thrilling disaster action on camera as a plane crash caused the ground to split open and spill out rubble.
While Superman is present in the scenes, the flames and carnage suggest he arrived too late to save the day.
But, credit where it's due, Cavill won't be relying solely on padding and has revealed he is consuming a whopping 5,000 calories a day to gain weight for the role.
The 28-year-old said: 'You've got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs. You've got to keep your hunger levels going.
'I'm training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman.'

Cavill joins a list of homegrown talent who are taking Hollywood by storm to play legendary figures.
Geeky Andrew Garfield has taken over as Tobey Maguire to play webslinger Spider-Man and Christian Bale is reprising his role as Batman in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.
Cavill also confessed he lost his cool when he first tried the suit on.
He said: 'I turned around and looked in the mirror and you can't really play it cool - you sort of guffaw and laugh.
'It's extremely cool. There's no other feeling like it.'
