Costume Photos from Burton's Superman Project

SuperHeroHype posted some pictures of the costume from [I]Superman Lives[I].

All I can say is what the fuck.

People were getting worked up because of the shade of red they used in SR. Imagine the keyboard rage if this was made

Re: Costume Photos from Burton's Superman Project

But was this the actual costume or was it what Superman wears after he comes back from the dead. Superman Lives was supposed to have been inspired from Reign of the Supermen, correct?

Well, leaving aside the kneejerk "It's not what I'm used to so it's evil" reactions, just looking at it as a costume design in its own right, I think it's an interesting idea -- trying to suggest something alien and futuristic -- but too garish and overdesigned to be successful. It reminds me of Joel Schumacher's neon Batmobile.

Re: Costume Photos from Burton's Superman Project

That does look dreadful, but that's not actually his normal suit. That's one of his Rebirth suits, I believe. His actual suit that he was to begin the movie with was blue and dark red.

Pretty sure this resembles the suit Burton wanted Superman to start the film with, manipulation or not:




This is also another concept rendering that infamous Superman Lives producer Jon Peters still has:




This is his Rebirth suit, for his rebirth in The Fortress.



I believe that concept fell though, and so we got the one that was released today. It was supposed to "show" Superman's "muscles and internal organs in some fashion when he was reborn. It also glowed, which is why you've seen that shot of the S with glowing musculature behind it.

This is the Eradicator suit he was to wear after he had come back to life and needed strength:



And I believe he was to end the film in the black and silver suit that we're familiar with.

If nothing else this would have been an interesting project had it gone forward.

It wouldn't have been dull or cliché -- at least visually, that's for certain. I can't stop chuckling thinking about those images, though.

Dude, it's Superman.

Reminds me of Kevin Smith's tale about the script again. When producer Jon Peters came along saying "I don't want to see him fly, I don't want to see him in that suit, it needs a giant spider in the third act, and Superman needs guards in the Fortress of Solitude."
