Henry Cavill's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie costume and more on display...

The Man of Steel received a few tweaks to his costume design for this battle royale in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and here's his superheroic suit on display in all its glory at Warner Bros. Studios Hollywood Backlot Tour on June 9, 2016.

You can also compare this new suit to Henry Cavill's Superman costume from 2013's Man of Steel to see the slight differences to his waist and wristband details.

Plus I'm still a fan of the underpants-on-the-outside superhero costume sported by Brandon Routh in Superman Returns, so take a look at that version too.

Costume Designer Michael Wilkinson was responsible for updating the Kryptonian's iconic look and he's no stranger to superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy after working on costumes from Watchmen, costumes from Sucker Punch and Tron: Legacy movie costumes.

In addition to Henry Cavill's iconic costume the exhibit also had his 'Clark Kent' alter-ego Daily Planet work clothes outfit and those worn by Amy Adams as investigative journalist 'Lois Lane' and Laurence Fishburne as newspaper editor 'Perry White'.

In addition to the staff of the Daily Planet, Jesse Eisenberg's villainous 'Lex Luthor' costume was on display alongside a cool LexCorp Kryptonite science lab prop from Zack Snyder's movie.

If you're a fan of the DC Comics movie you should also check out Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume from Batman v Superman on display.

The other day I was accused of not being a true fan because I offered a differing opinion to someone else and didn't post every single image that I'd taken of these costumes. Fortunately I choose to reject such negativity and know from the positive feedback I've received over the years, that there are people out there that appreciate the photos I choose to share, that may not be able to see themselves in person. It's for them and their continued appreciation that I continue to publish this blog.

And finally on a more positive note I thought I'd leave you all with this original Superman cape from the 1978 film starring Christopher Reeve as the titular hero, also on display at the Warner Bros. Studios backlot.
