Why is it that super-hero costumes have to look like kick balls? I've never understood the argument. Something about texture? Well why doesn't everyone's clothes look like a kick ball?
It's the in thing at the moment. Like leather before that and muscle suits before that.

I'm not a fan of this take at all. Like the Spidey suit, it stinks of someone trying to stamp their own shit all over it as though decades worth of nobody complaining needed addressing.
I think it has more to do with the rise of HD TV. With the old standard resolution something like the material of the suit would be fairly unnoticable, but with today's hi-def, you have to play up to it, just as it's changed how makeup is done.
I'm not opposed to adding some texture to the suit, this just seems a little overdone to me. I think that if they had applied a similar texture as the one used on the Superman Returns costume it would look better.
