We’re still waiting to get a peek at Batfleck in action, but the first set pic of Henry Cavill’s Superman has finally arrived from Batman v Superman. It looks ... kind of shiny?

Cavill has been strolling around the set in costume for at least a few days, though he’d managed to stay covered up from photographers thanks to that huge jacket that has fallen open in this pic. It looks very similar to the original design from Man of Steel, though the colors do seem a bit brighter in this pic.

Likely that’s due to the exposure of the photograph, though we have to admit we are digging Supes’ sleek, slicked-back hairdo. Very suave. It’s also nice to get a peek at the super-suit outside of that rained-out pic that was released a while back, which you can find above.

Check it out below and let us know what you think:

With set pics of Superman finally leaking out, it stands to reason we might finally get a peek at Ben Affleck’s Batman in action sometime soon. Set pics and video of Affleck as Bruce Wayne have already been making the rounds, but we’re dying to see that Bat-suit in all its leaked-set-pic glory.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is slated to open March 25, 2016.
