I am so used to seeing this new suit that all of the old pics with Superman wearing his undies on the outside now look very strange!
Agreed! I had no problem with the original look before, but now those red shorts just silly and dated as hell to me.

Although I will say, as a fan of the SR suit I think the speedo still looks pretty good. Of course I know that's a very minority opinion. Lol
I also liked the Superman Returns suit. I think it was a nice update from the Reeves era suit.

I believe not.
Superman's suit in MoS is supposed to be what a Kryptonian would wear under the armor, like the armor we see Zod wear.
To quote from the recent EW magazine:
If you watch the clip in the trailer where Zod and his followers have been caught, they appear to be wearing the suit with no armor.

So what's the explanation for why Supes has a cape and they don't?

Edna Mode is the arch villain behind this.

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

I assume the reason Supes has the cape while Zod and his minions don't is because the version of the Krpytonian attire Supes is wearing is an ancient version of that suit, while Zod is donning the newer brand which doesn't have it. He does get the suit from the Fortress of Solitude(which according to the EW article has been on earth for centuries before he arrived on Earth, planted there by his ancestors.)

He saw Batman with a cape and thought it looked cool.

So they got rid of the red undies and made the entire suit underwear instead?
Does it have a back flap for trips to the outhouse? Otherwise, briefs would be a lot easier for those moments than hauling off a full bodysuit for nature's call.
He's Superman...he has Super-hold-it-in powers.

The more I see of it the more I really dislike the costume redesign.

I'm mildly intrigued by the film itself, but that costume is lousy.

Well, nothing's more humiliating than being stripped down to your underwear in front of the victors.

Do the other Kryptonians in this versions have superpowers under a yellow sun as well, or only Kal-El because he's a naturally born Kryptonian?

Of course other Kryptonians will have superpowers, otherwise it would be a pretty short confrontation with the villains.

I'm not even sure I get why you have to ask. Has there ever been a story where having powers under a yellow sun was Clark specific and not a general kryptonian trait?

And Clark was born naturally? How are the others born? The way I see it Kal-El is just a random kryptonian baby who has extraordinary powers on earth.

Meh, I'm not a fan of that at all. Why do so many writer's insist on making Krypton some crappy, dystopian place with civil wars and stuff?

The messianic aspect of Superman has always been part of the Superman mythos.

I can't remember any version - comics or otherwise where he is just 'another' guy - he is always the son of one of the most famous scientists who is saved because of the special foresight of said famous scientist.
