Superheroes, sci-fi and drama movie costume round-up around L.A...

These past few months the big Summer blockbusters keep coming and so too do the fantastic costume displays that help promote the movies. Here's some of my latest finds around L.A. from iconic comic book heroes to rebooted sci-fi franchises, the roaring twenties to mob thrillers and comedy dramas.

Man of Steel Superman costume exhibit

Henry Cavill is the latest actor to don the familiar Superman costume in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, although this one is minus the underwear over the tights and a moodier look altogether. This new Superman suit was snapped on display at ArcLight Pasadena cinema and if you like this, be sure to check out these other superhero movie costumes and props from the big screen.

Meanwhile this costume and prop exhibit, including an outfit worn by Sam Rockwell, is for a far quieter Summer movie, The Way, Way Back and was spied at ArcLight Hollywood this month.

May also saw Baz Lurhmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby hit the big screen and these lavish costumes from the movie set in 1920's New York were on display at ArcLight Hollywood.

Plus I also caught the tail-end of an in-store costume display for the period movie at Brooks Brothers Regent Street location in London on my latest visit.

In May I also took a trip to Universal Studios Hollywood to enjoy the latest original costumes and props on display from their extensive film and TV archives, including Oscar-winning and nominated costumes from this year's Academy Awards from films like Les Miserables, Anna Karenina and Snow White & The Huntsman.

The Iceman movie costume
