James Gunn always had a knack for adapting superhero costumes.
His work in Suicide Squad really exemplified that.
This and Reeves' might be the best Superman suits.

              No, usually it’s home made. At most, Ma makes the suit out of Kryptonian materials found in the spacepod, or the red cape is the blanket that was wrapped around Clark when he landed.

              Maybe he isn't adapting that.
              [...]
              Hey, Sneeder did it differently.

              I’m not a fan of the alien relic angle. It’s a needless alteration. Ma crafting the suit reinforces (1) the Kents support Clark’s actions, so much so that they are willing to work with Clark, and (2) the Kents are the reason Superman exists, literally being the one’s to craft his image. The alien relic comes off as odd, like a human who grew up on an alien planet stumbling across a Roman Legionary costume and deciding he would dress that way.

      This is my biggest problem with the costumes these days and has been for some time. Obviously I'm expecting a little more than Christopher Reeves' outfit these days, but I wish they'd lean back to that overall level of simplicity.

      They did a great job back then making the outfit seem otherworldly just by having it be impossibly clean all the time, and drape impossibly well. They got the colours pretty right, and the fact they were bright red and shit wasn't a bad thing at all.

      They did an amazing job at the time concealing seams, but they could fix that with CGI easily these days - and that's the best use of CGI, to enhance IRL shit and old skool effects, not totally replace them with shit that looks totally fakeass from strart to finish.

      Early MCU did a great job with costumes compared to what came previously - like making Captain America's outfit look anything close to real seemed next-to-impossible before that. Later phase MCU costumes were just overdone shit with bullshit textures just for the sake of texture, etc.

They didn't take superheroes seriously at all, so it was either trying to be EXACTLY like the comics and looked like your Mom made it for Halloween, or they'd just change it completely and bear no resemblance at all to the actual superhero. I thought the Avengers costume was a decent compromise. I agree it improved over time, the leather chinstrap was the best thing that ever happened to it for one thing.

      Because James Gunn thought this looked awesome.

      The costume is based on the New 52 suit, which was a comics reboot when DC the publisher was trying to attract new readers.
      The monster in the background is from Grant Morrison's All-Star Superman comic which every casual Superman fan loves to fellate.
      The actor is putting on the costume with a deliberate ease which is meant to portray a more salt of the earth approach which is something most fanboy asks for.

      So Gunn thought this would be a banger.

          But then it'd be too different and you'd risk to displease the fanboys, which is what James Gunn is trying to bank on.

          Look at the costume, mate. It's a hodgepodge of everything that is known to casual readers and casual fans.

          Busy suit with random lines and V-neck from the most recent comics reboot - The New 52, which served as a gateway to for new readers.
          The "S" shield from Kingdom Come, one of the few evergreen comic books sold by DC the publisher. Every casual reader is introduced to that comic.
          The red underwear, which is what most die-hard Superman fanboys expect and demand.
          The reference to Grant Morrison's All-Star Superman, another one of the few evergreen comic book sold by DC the publisher. This another comic book that every casual reader is introduced to when looking to read something about Superman.

          It is everything WB execs could expect from popular shit Superman is known for mixed together with little care or thought put into it.

          Peacemaker was supposed to be a dumb bully, who's naive and being used as a patsy. He was meant to mock all the 80s action movie heroes, with their machismo and jingoism. Basically a toxic version of Captain America.
          The costume was to be over the top and silly, because the character was meant to be dumb and naive. He thinks he is a hero but he is just a joke.
