Designed by "Spider-Man" film costume designer James Acheson, the new Superman costume strays from the traditional design seen in the comic books, but remains true to the image of Superman, while giving the Man of Steel a more modern and streamlined appearance.
Snyder stated, "We felt that Superman needed to step away from the old circus strong man, red underwear on the outside, flowing cape design that was looking very dated by today's superhero movie standard. The design James [Acheson] created will once again put Superman at the forefront of superheroes worldwide."
Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder are the producers of the film. The screenplay is being written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.
Slated for release in December 2012, the new Superman movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Titled "Superman's Girlfriend: Lois Lane", the new TV series was pitched to The CW by "Smallville" co-creators Al Gough and Miles Miller, and is scheduled to premiere in September 2011.
"I'm extremely excited about this wonderful opportunity," explained Lancaster. "Lois Lane is such an iconic character, a role model for women throughout the years. I'm really looking forward to showing young women everywhere that Lois Lane is more than just Superman's girlfriend, she's a strong feminist in her own right. She doesn't need a man to define her."
And that's the kicker, Superman won't be in the series at all. He'll be alluded to, but never seen. This is Lois Lane's show. It's unknown at this point in time if we'll see Clark Kent, Jimmy Olsen or Perry White.
The role was offered to Erica Durance, but the "Smallville" actress turned down the role fearing she'd be typecast.

"It's too early to reveal just who the writer of this new title will be, but we're so excited to have Dave Bullock signed on as both cover artist and interior artist. Dave has a style that is very reminiscent of Joe Shuster. I'm sure fans will love his version of the Man of Tomorrow... I mean, Yesterday."
Police located the man a short time later in the car-park and identified him as American actor Thomas John Patrick Welling of "Smallville" fame.
Indecent exposure is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine up to $2,000. Welling was released on bail and is expected to confront the court later this month.
