Intriguing test footage of that unused Tim Burton Superman suit

About a month ago, we showed you some still pictures of the Superman suit you'd have seen on the screen had Tim Burton gone ahead with that movie back in the '90s. And now, to get us thinking even more about what might have been—and whether we would have liked it—here's some test footage of the suit in action.

Apparently, this blinking and flashing costume was NOT meant to replace the Man of Steel's iconic outfit, but rather a regeneration suit that was to act as an exoskeleton of sorts until he recovered from his battle with Doomsday. So we can all calm down about Burton's plans to ditch the classic red-and-blue tights, because that wasn't the case after all.

Check it out below, and let us know whether that changes the way you feel about the look.
