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

The suit is too dark, too rubbery and the cape is too long. It also looks like there are no red undies, I don't understand why they feel they have to change things. I'd like to see something closer to the SR suit with this new shield. I do like the shield though. I can't say I hate this new suit,ut I don't love it either.

This is still pretty much a Pre-boot of when Supeman starts out right? This will most likely be his first suit. The suit we all have come accustomed to is something he'll don later on.

Yeah, I don't see the red undies, either... here's a high-res pic for those who want to check it out up-close:

It's really too dark to see the overpants in this image. I'd be curious to see it properly lit.

From that angle, it looks like the shield is made out of fondant.

Maybe he makes Super Cakes.

I hated Routh's suit in Returns from the moment I saw it. This one isn't that bad, but I'll have to see more.

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

I didn't hate Routh's suit, though I did feel the "S" shield was too small. The colors worked, especially with the more muted color scheme of Returns. With the new suit, I have no problem with it thus far. I'm really glad they made the shield large. As for the texture, it's not a deal breaker. It's setting it apart from the Reeve-Cain-Routh-Welling Superman eras.

As I said previously, Cavill looks pretty bad ass, but there is something in the back of my mind that reminds me of Nuclear Man in terms of his build and that look on his face. Again not a deal breaker, Nuclear Man wasn't the worst thing in Superman IV. And I like the fact that they have a Superman now in terms of musculature that looks more like the comics. Though I wish his hair style would resemble more of Mon-El's spiky look, as rendered by Bernard Chang in the recent Man of Valor series.

It's been said before, but Routh himself was fine for the role. Dude was jacked. The problem was that they used milliskin for the suit, which is horribly, horribly compressing (hence the need for the foam muscle sections of the suit, even though Routh was almost as stacked as Chris Hemsworth was on Thor).

Anyway, I'm digging Cavill's look and the suit, especially the shield. I'm not a huge fan of the texture on the suit, but I'll wait on seeing it in motion before I start really complaining.

Although the width and length of the cape is a little too Todd McFarlane for my taste.

I liked Routh's suit and I like Cavill's suit. Both interesting takes on an iconic image.

I like Cavill's look and the suit design, I just don't care for the texture. Although it might look different in different lighting, so I'm not gonna make any kind of a final judgment.

Incidentally, this link allows for a quick and easy comparison of the various live-action Superman outfits since George Reeves (no Kirk Alyn and no Superboy, though):

Funny how many people are absolutely sure about the red briefs being gone, when you can't actually tell by that pic.

But I did notice something, there seems to be something on Superman's upper leg.
