Superman would not be seen in his old attire with red underpants worn over the blue bodysuit, in the upcoming movie Man of Steel.
Henry Cavill's costume in the new movie has darker, moodier tones than earlier incarnations of the superhero and there are no shorts, the New York Daily News reported.
The new suit is made from high-tech mesh material and instead of the short red pants worn over his costume, a sinewy muscular design in matching deep blue encircles will be seen on his waist.
The film is a reboot of the Superman film series, which in addition to Henry Cavill as Superman, also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Michael Shannon as General Zod.
Man of Steel zooms into theatres on June 14, 2013.
