Costume looks way too rubbery, and the colors are too dark, yet again. I love the golden age S, from what I can see of it.
I don't like the raised "S" and the scaly effect on the suit which itself looks too plastic. The cape isn't bad.

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

I have no problem with the suit, I think it looks pretty great, overall. The only problem I have with it, is that I'm kinda' baffled by the size of the cape. However, that's not enough for me to not like it, and I'm not gonna' judge a suit until I see it in motion in the movie itself.

The one thing I do have a problem with, though? It's not the suit, it's Cavill. Or at least how he's being "directed" to look. See, the thing is...he kinda' looks like a douche bag.

Not really seeing that. He just looks grim and serious to me-- basically the standard Jim Lee Superman expression.

The raised textured S is my only complaint about the suit.

Yeah, aside from the aforementioned Thor comparison, it also kinda reminds me of the Spawn cape, as far as the size of it goes at least.

However, that's not enough for me to not like it, and I'm not gonna' judge a suit until I see it in motion in the movie itself.
That's pretty much my take on it too. Stills can only convey so much.

Yeah I agree with davejames, he doesn't look like a douche (that's Smallville Clark ) he is posed pretty much like a Jim Lee drawing. I'm kind of surprised they didn't add the glowing red heat vision eyes.

At least he doesn't look like a skinny dude who worked out a few months in the gym. That's partly what killed Routh Supes for me. He had the wrong frame. Call me picky if you will. Ironically enough, I saw a pic of Routh after the movie was done and he actually looked better for the role. Maybe he spent a few more months at the gym for the doomed sequel.

I think Tom could have pulled it off on the show and look halfway like Superman...but the writing really failed them and well...you know.

You've been around more than long enough to know not to do this, so you've got an infraction for flaming. Don't do this.

Yeah, I'll admit...I don't think I've ever read a Superman comic. I'm a TV show, radio show, cartoon, Donnerverse, Christopher Reeve IS Superman kind of guy. So I get it if this is in some way a classic comic interpretation of Supes.

Just, to me, compared to Reeve, this guy looks like he's gonna' go beat up a nerd and steal his girlfriend, then try to calm his roid rage with a drinking bender...and perhaps a bank robbery.

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.
I think people went too far with the Jersey Shore references and saying Snooki should be Lois.

Those sites comment board never ceases to amaze me with what they say. It seems to be no different on other sites like IMDB, etc.
