I give it roughly five minutes. He'll be back in his traditional suit in no time flat.
Eh, in fairness, the "new" suit is nearly the same as the old suit. The only major difference lack of the red shorts. Everything else is just subtle change.

In the upcoming film, I'm sure they'll do their version of it, but there is no need to completely reinvent the wheel.

Disagree. They need to be ballsy about the suit, not ashamed of it.
Exactly. The suit won't look silly to anyone if the actor they cast wears it with as much confidence and conviction as Christopher Reeve did.

Yeah, I agree. Always drove me nuts the way Dean Caine would fold his arms over his chest as if he were ashamed to have a big red \S/ on it.

The Russell Crowe news is surprising but I like it. The casting of this film is brilliant.

Well to be fair, that WAS a pretty silly looking S they gave him.

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

That's arrant nonsense. Reeve had two basic poses as well - arms akimbo and arms folded across his chest. "Postures of defiance" he called them.

Looked good when Reeve did it. Cain just looked embarrassed.

Yeah, the casting is one of the cheerful things about this.

Wonder to what extent the DC Comics folks are coordinating their reboot with this movie? The fact that Warners is going to spend money advertising and promoting the "New DC Universe" suggests that they're looking for some synergy here.

^ Same as they always do. They always modify the comics to comport with the movies or tv shows. That's why Wonder Woman is wearing that silly new outfit. Since the tv show wasn't picked up, she'll be back in her old duds in a year or two.

I doubt they'll be able to keep Superman in his new outfit long enough for this movie to come out.
