was this an actual photo from the movie, or a screen test? I don’t remember this image in the film.

Is from a screen test. I still cant believe WB accepted the dark tones

I agree. Superman should have lighter color tones. This gives an impression of mud and dirt. Definitely not a good superman photo if you ask me.

I quite like the \S/ shield there. I can see where Supergirl costume designers took their idea from.

Looks like an early version of the costume. No yellow background in the S shield. Might be the same version we see in the very first promotional movie poster a full year before the film was released:
