Superman's got a whole new look.

Henry Cavill was spotted shooting scenes for Man of Steel in Plano, Illinois, Tuesday, where onlookers caught a glimpse of the actor's chiseled chest, rock hard abs and bulging biceps.

Though 28-year-old Cavill's body makeover isn't too surprising, the alterations made to his skintight costume might raise some eyebrows. The character's signature red briefs and yellow utility belt have been eliminated, though Superman's red cape and giant "S" have been kept intact.

To prep for his role in the film (which also stars Amy Adams, Russell Crowe and Diane Lane), Cavill was put on an intense diet and fitness regimen.

"I'm on 5,000 calories a day," he recently told Total Film Magazine. "You've got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs. You've got to keep your hunger levels going."

"I'm training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman."

Man of Steel arrives in theaters June 14, 2013.
