I agree he needs some red about waistish. The old red undies look stupid, but the new 52 has a red belt-like structure on their main and Earth-2 Supermen, and it looks awesome.

I've never been a fan of the Superman movies, I love the character in the comics, but the movies were either cheesy or too politically correct (Superman Returns).
Where do you get politically correct from? I've been listening to SR-haters complaining that it made him look like a stalker, which is hardly what you'd call politically correct.

Yeah PC isn't a term that I see connected with "Superman Returns" either.

^ I think a lot of people don't actually know what it means and throw it about as a term of general abuse for movies they don't like.

The PC complaint for Returns is usually related to Perry White's "truth, justice, all that stuff!" line.

^That was just a little bit of irony, as far as I could see, not unlike Jimmy Olsen's photos turning out to be rubbish compared to the kid with the cellphone.

I agree, but some people really got their panties in a twist over it.

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

I wonder what people who found it too PC thought of the out and out piss take of the "American way" line in the first Donner film? "You'll be fighting every elected official in this country!"

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

Most likely they were younger when they first saw it, so they never really thought about it and since have grown to accept. Really Perry's line in SR is not that different from Lois's reaction in the original film.

They are reporters and had to covered politics and seen the darker corners of the system. It makes sense they would have much more cynical view of things than someone raised on a farm in Kansas. Lois & Clark had a similar contrast between the two characters.

It was funny at the time, remember Nixon? The idea that politicians can't be trusted is hardly a recent comedy trope.

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

The viral marketing to the film has begun. A countdown has started using what I can only assume are the film's "new" take on Kryptonian symbols, these being represented as numbers. Also...are these coordinates that make up the website?

Would have been cool if they'd made the number system something besides base 10.

Supposedly there are seven hours left. I'm guessing this is a countdown to the trailer being released this week.
