Bryan Singer's X-men leather influence at work.
Still, the suit in general doesn't resemble the leather or rubber we've been seeing in superhero films lately. In fact, it looks more old school compared to other movie superhero costumes (Spiderman, X-men, Daredevil, Fantastic Four). Is this a good thing? Well, from a nostalgia standpoint, yes--and that's what Singer has been trying to do. Also, consider the color Maroon, which has been featured in many Superman comics when Superman is portrayed as older and wiser (best example would be Old Superman's appearences in Superman Batman and Kingdom Come). This also ties into Singer's storyline, where Supes comes back after a hiatus offworld, thus making him seem older and wiser.
Still, that actor looks a little wierd to me.
