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

Let's change the topic and start bitching about something else!

I like that they went with the classic design for the most part, but why does it need scales? (on the S shield, no less)

Going the Spider-Man approach I take it. Henry looks a bit like James Remar in that picture too.

Hot damn! Looks good.

That said...are they deliberating hiding their decision about the red undies in that shot?

Cavill looks muscular enough to pull it off. Oddly, his haircut looks more modern and less ridiculous in that shot than in the Comic-Con photos. Good.

The colors are desaturated in that shot, of course - the outfit is not bright, but look at how subdued Cavill's skin tones are as well. Is that the look Snyder is going with throughout the movie do you suppose?

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

Typical AICN Talkback reaction to the picture:

The hair's too big, the cape look bunched and uncomfortable, and the sleeves are bunched around the wrists
I swear those dorks should be surgically and humanely rendered incapable of breeding, for the good of humanity. Of course, their likely hygiene and personality issues may make that moot.

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

Look at some of the comments at EW; http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/08/0...look-superman/

"John Travolta’s looking pretty good!"
"Where’s the spit curl?"
"The suit looks plastic and too dark in color"
"He’s SuperGuido."

People are stupid.

The cape does look a little huge on him, almost Spawn like in size. and I dont like the scales on the shield. On the other hand I like the scales everywhere else. The wrist detail is cool and the points match the inverted points on the boots which works for me. Overall a b+ design so far.

Jeez, they should have just gone ahead and cast Will Smith. At least they'd have gotten some "blantant shock value."

And BTW, the accelerating distribution of and reaction to this photo demonstrates again how ridiculous the notion is that this production would need to resort to alleged "stunt casting" to pick up a day or two of high-profile coverage.

Productions not over yet, maybe there will be a black-face scene. That would be pretty blatant.

Not loving the hair (looks like a bad wig) or the use of the Spiderman/basketball fabric but the set up of the shot itself looks pretty good.

I heard that Lawrence Fishburne is going to white up for the role.

I hate reading the AICN talkback pages because they just hate everything that is ever posted.

All in all I do like the new suit and can't wait for this movie!
