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.
Probably a Time Beetle.

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.
The shield is SO distinctly classic and retro in style that it does make me wonder if this is supposed to reflect an earlier version of the suit (especially considering how much time this movie apparently covers).

Although I imagine if that were the case, the studio would just be releasing a shot of the modern suit intead...

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):

I'm not completely sold on the texturing but I would have to say that so far this is looking like it could the best version of the suit yet. I'm also hoping that it's just the lighting that's making the colours look a bit muted.

What I like about the new version is that it somehow manages to look as if it's designed using the comics as a source without reference to previous film versions - as if no one had ever recreated this outfit before.

Maybe I'm not quite sure what you are getting at, but haven't all the Superman films/TV shows done their own thing with the suit without reference to an earlier filmed version?

Looks like WB has another massive FLOP!! in their hands. Shades of Green Lantern 2, if you will.

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

Superman Returns did well enough...it would have gotten a sequel but WB decided to re-boot...Superman is a more popular character than Green Lantern and even if the movie isn't great as far as story...the star power+Superman should equal a big opening and hopefully long term box office success.

We shall see.

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).
I didn't know this; he certainly didn't looked ripped.

Routh was, without a doubt, my favourite part of Returns. Hopefully Cavil measures up.

Seriously StarTrek1701 is there anything you like? You keep posting the same opinions over and over again with zero basis for those opinions.

This is hilarious. A brilliant send-up of the typical, knee-jerk fan-boy reaction.

I hope.

The suit looks extremely uncomfortable to wear, like it's made of rubber. When I saw the picture the first time, I immediately heard the sound of two basketballs being rubbed against each other.
