I liked the subdued colors on Routh's uniform. I don't think they should go as bright red as they did with Reeve's Superman suit.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

The size of the House of El crest matters? Really? I had no problem with the symbol in "Superman Returns".

I remember that there was a huge fanboy issue with the shape, size, and color of the \S/ when pictures of Routh in costume were released.

I also remember a video when Singer was being interviewed and some fan complained to him about it. Singer retorted in a very dismissive manner (which, honestly, matched the fan's attitude) that the \S/ has constantly changed over the past 70 years.

Because of that, I am always willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I remember that video. It's funny...fans may have hated that suit, but DC later adapted it for Geoff Johns run on Action Comics. Adam Kubert designed an adaption complete with a bigger version of the Returns crest and added to the belt buckle. No one seemed to complain then, but then maybe that's because the bulk of Returns haters didn't read Superman comics. I dunno.

Disagree. They need to be ballsy about the suit, not ashamed of it.

Well the darker colors definitely fit the more somber story of SR (the brighter colors of Reeve's suit would have been completely out of place).

That said, I do look forward to seeing a more vibrant and colorful version on the big screen again.

The darker suit was also caused by the Orange & Teal color timing. And that seems to be standard lately.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I hope they're going to jettison a lot of the old costume detail and go for something less dated. The cape and shield matter. Beyond that...well, DC Comics is dumping the old suit and filmmakers tend to take even more liberties with these things. Look at every version of Batman for the last twenty years.

Appropriately so, since he was doing the whole "death of Superman" thing and was borrowing from the comic continuity itself. He also had a red/blue cape version designed and tested, which was not terribly good.

I give it roughly five minutes. He'll be back in his traditional suit in no time flat.

They should do a Supergirl movie. A bodypainting "suit".

Like that Megan Fox picture? Hmm, I'm not sure if it's appropriate to post here.
