The epic artwork depicts a perfect blend between the distinctive Norse armor worn by Thor and Superman’s iconic red and blue suit – “S” included. The long hair is a change for the film Superman, where Cavill always wears the character’s more traditional short cut, although the longer hairstyle is reminiscent of Superman’s time in the black costume in the comics in the 90s.
