Producer Bruce Timm once again spoke with CBR News¬†about the challenge of creating a new look for this world’s Superman. This is what he had to say:

“Superman’s look was, honestly, the toughest [to create]. The only thing I knew was that I didn’t want him to have a big red and yellow diamond on his chest or on his costume. I actually even resisted putting an ‘S’ on him anywhere. To a degree, I just wanted to get him out of spandex because I didn’t want him to have a traditional super hero look. I wanted to do something different with him, but I didn’t really know what that meant. I kept stripping him back and stripping him back, to the point where it almost became boring, where he’s just wearing a turtleneck and tight pants and jack boots. You have to jazz it up somehow. I thought, ‘Oh, I’ll put a leather coat on him. This looks cool.’ Then I started drawing him in motion and the way his coat would flap in the breeze, I thought, ‘Wow, that looks a little like a cape. That’s kind of cool.’ So it was a weird accident.”

Check out the 2nd webisode of the short series below and let us know if you’re feeling this new take on Superman.
