That pic on Empire magazine looks like it's kind of fake, like Rob Liefeld drawing

It looks nothing like a Rob Liefeld drawing. Although it has probably been air brushed...still liking everything that I've seen from this film so far.

Wow, I've never seen these either. For a rubber muscle suit, it actually looks pretty decent (and much better than some of the concept artwork and wacky prototypes that we've seen for this movie).

Still though, it does look awfully weird on Nicholas Cage.

Because... it looks cool? And much more interesting than thin tights or smooth rubber?

Those pics are probably from the filmmaker who has started a kickstarter campaign to film a documentary on "Superman Lives".

As some of us have speculated, the fate of the JL movie will depend on the success of MOS. Not a big surprise, I suppose.

No surprise at all. If MoS is a big hit, I also expect WB to try to extend Henry Cavill's contract to at least six films (to account for potential Superman and JL trilogies).

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.

Yes, I certainly hope that they have him in both, rather than two different continuties, as has also been mooted. Having said that, if they must keep them separate, I'd love to see Brandon Routh get another shout (pigs flying, snowballs roasting in hell, etc etc).

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.

This is probably before Superman dies and needs a neon lighted suit to stay alive and then that weird suit with long haired Cage.

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

That's a nice looking costume and Cage looks good in it. I can believe that he's Superman.

I figured it was the result of Burton being reigned in a bit.

I just found this photoshop job...



It looks like a nice compliment to the Burton/Schumacher Batman.

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.
