    Hey Gang. I found this pic a while ago online, along with a few others of a maquette of the same suit. i BELIEVE this was made for the aborted McG movie, FlyBy.

    Does anyone have any other pics, information, or know ANYTHING about this suit? If you have dirt, but cannot share online, please send me a PM. I can be discreet when necessary :)

    I'm not a fan of the Supes suit being rubber, but that is really interesting looking and looks like parts of the design are being used in the upcoming Snyder version.

    I'd love to know more about this.

    Thanks for the link. Definitely some useful information over there, though it was a bit sparse. I did not know that Winston's shop made the suit. It also looks like there is a dude over there who had some hand in some of the prelim suit design, and got to see the McG suit in person. Someone posted a link to his DA page, which means I can contact him if necessary :)

    Keep it comin' folks! I appreciate all the input!

    Other than saying that I kinda dig the design, all I can do is offer a free bump! :)

    It looks like the suit that Superman has in the New 51 books.

    "You'll believe a man is afraid to fly." :lol

    Just my two cents but that suit is dreadful. But on the up-side it's not as dreadful as the Burton/Cage one. :lol

    Although it looks cool, Superman doesn't need to wear an armor suit: he's invulnerable.

    Quick reminder, I'm actually looking for information on this suit and reference photos, not opinions on the suit or movie. Thanks.

    He's not invulnerable...his weakness is Kryptonite, bad directors, and costume SNAFU's

    That guy sure looks like Tim "Gore" Larsen. I'm almost positive its him. He's been painting and airbrushing for years now and has worked on many films including ones done at Stan Winston's. I don't have any current contact info for him Matt but try reaching him through this gallery:

    Hive Gallery

    Or... I'm pretty sure this is him too:

    EXTREME GORE STORE — Home

    He's a great guy and I'm sure he could help you out. :)

    When I was back at Mattel we received tons of pre-production art for this film but unfortunately I left it all behind in my file cabinet. :facepalm So a lot of reference does exist however since they were farming it out very early for licensing.
