Superman's New Costume...what????

As much as I love Henry Cavill (and I DO love me some Henry Cavill) I am a little dismayed at the incarnation of the Superman costume he'll be rocking in Man of Steel

I can live without the cape, but the texture of the blue costume is WEIRD.  It looks kinda rubbery, which I guess would give a superhero more protection than Spandex but it looks really weird.  I'm also not sure how I feel about the weird metallic looks like some Art Nouveau metal artist started designing a suit of armor but gave up after only a few minutes, completing only the cuffs and the sides of the abdomen.  This only serves to highlight the lack of red underpants and Superman's prominent bulge.

I wonder if they've abandoned the cape completely or if they're just planning to add it back in later via the magic of computers...
