The First Costume Was Brown, Gray, & White
When you think of Superman, one of the first things that come to mind is his iconic costume, a blue suit with a red “S” emblazoned on the front and a matching red cape. But when the show was first filmed in black and white, the costume was anything but blue and red.
In fact, Reeves wore a brown, gray and white ensemble so producers could get the proper tones while filming the monochromatic episodes. This was common practice during those days. In the show Car 54, the police cars used on set were actually red in order to stand out on film.
