Unfortunately we the fans can be fine with the \S/uit...but the Nolans will most likely change it up a bit so it is unique to their film.

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

^ Well this shouldn't come as surprising since Bryan Singer did the same thing. It's only a natural response from a filmmaker wanting to make their own mark, bring something new to the character. Honestly I'm excited to see what the Nolans and Goyer come up with.

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

If I was making a Superman film...I would design it closer to the Reeve suit...if not complete the same with different fabrics.

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

I would adapt Gary Frank's design which is a homage to the Chris Reeve suit.

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

The "Reeve" suit was the classic Superman suit, with the one exception that they bent the top serif on the S. Otherwise it exactly matched the comic book version.

The only makeover Superman needs is a better film to star in.

There's no real difference between the "traditional" and the Superman Returns version.

^Yeah, I was going to point that out.
The red is maroon...fruit roll-up cape...the \S/...S's in the boot and belt. I know what you mean though.
Trivia. As I said, no real difference.

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

The only Superman makeover I would ever want is not exactly a makeover, but rather a guest shot...

...by Ultraman.

Well the new Superman will have to reflect current trends, so he'll need an emo haircut and sleeves that cover his wrists so no one knows that he's been cutting himself.

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

This is why a Bizarro Superman movie would work right now...Lady Gaga could do the theme.

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

Do not mention "Bizzaro Superman movie" worst script I ever read. I deleted it from my files after reading it. An interesting idea that was poorly executed and written.

Supes doesn't need a makeover. He needs a filmmaker who is willing to make a movie about who he is: a naive and sincere alien immigrant who fights for Truth, Justice and the American Way.
I'm not sure about naive per se but I think a story could be made of a very moral and upright Superman. I like the idea that he might elevate those around him by virtue of his virtue. Just because Superman is this way doesn't mean he couldn't be in a world of corruption, decay, and injustice. Done right, I think it could be even provocative and question of the way many people live among their fellow men. Maybe focus on how Superman touches the lives of a few down-and-out people (along with some serious ass-kicking and superheroics).
