There's really no reason for him to have clothes at all, his invulnerable to Earth disease and climate extremes so why does he need a damn suit at all?!

Wearing his heritage where ever he goes?

WTF is wrong with his hair?
When the official picture of him in the suit came out, plus some pictures of him has Clark, people here and on AICN complained like crazy that his hair was too poofy!

I'm sure the veins were built into the suit. There's no way the material is THAT thin.

Ah, I can see his junk. I wonder how hard it is to get in and out of that suit.
The button on the front is the Superjunk Release Switch.
At least we can't see the vein in his superjunk!

Too much?
Not enough.

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

Fans weren't raving mad over the fact that Batman wasn't wearing grey and black tights in Nolan's film. Not to mention that this version of Superman is much more faithful to the comics than the Nolan version is. With Batman, the entire color scheme is different, plus it's all armor. Even in 1989 they knew that the traditional costume wouldn't work on screen. People just wouldn't take the character as seriously as they could. If Batman can be changed so drastically for film and people can get over it, then there's no reason why Superman can't be changed a little bit.

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

Yeah I remember people complaining over details in the Nolan Batsuit as well. Perhaps not to the extent that has been going on with this suit or Henry Cavil's hair style...but it was pretty intense IIRC. The thing is there is never going to be any consensus on a superhero costume...ever! Fans are just too nitpicky and set in their own ways for us all to agree on anything.

You're a traditionalist. There's no reason not to modify the suit a bit to accomodate the tastes of the people working on the project.

I do like it better without the red Speedo.

^ Indeed. Each production has had their own take on the suit which is pretty much to be expected since they're each doing their own take on the character.

Yeah it's kind of ironic that the batsuit that's MOST faithful to the comics... is actually the Adam West one.

The meme "teh Puffy" was created from the backlash over the Batman Begins suit.

How is Clark Kent wearing a rubber material suit underneath his clothes? The same way that Superman Returns Clark Kent wore it. Same way Peter Parker wore his suit in "Spider-Man".

@StarTrek1701 I can't believe I'm saying this but I agree with you. Brandon would look great in this suit. I'm very pleased with Cavil so far, but I think Routh would still be great.
Spiderman's suit looked like it was rubbery, but also clothy. It looked like maybe he had it made, but definately could wear it and easily take it off. Same with Rouths suit, same with Trek (09) uniforms. This new suit doesn't have those qualities, it looks too rubbery and plastic even. It doesn't look like you could walk around easily with it on, nor does it look like you could wear it easily. It definately doesn't look Martha could have made it.

Another observation is that it has a zipper running down the back, which means it's a one piece. I was always under the impression that Superman's suit was a 3 or 4 piece. The shirt, the pants(with a belt), the cape and the boots. Maybe the cape is sown in, maybe it's not. I seem to remember Dean Cain's suit bieng that way and he had several in his closet, all made by Martha Kent.

I know i'm nitpicking, ussually I don't as much, but this suit just doesn't sit right with me. I like some aspects of it, but i'd prefer a more cloth like material, with not too much detail.
