If you ever wondered just how Clark Kent can completely transform into Superman (we'll give you a hint: phone booths have nothing to do with it), check out this special conversation with Michael Wilkinson, the Academy Award nominee for Costume Design behind Amy Adam's dresses in American Hustle, and Bobi Garland, director of Historic Western Costume Company's Research Library and Costume Archive, as they discuss the cutting edge technology behind the costumes in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Original costumes from Man of Steel will be on display for one evening only in the Bing Theater Lobby, so you can see for yourself how a costume can truly revive a 75-year old superhero.
