Pic of from set...cape with no shield.
Darn, after the last movie I was kind of missing the shield on the back.
Yeah, I like having the shield on the cape too.

I guess Superman returns to the Kent Farm.

Thanks guys. Hopefully we'll get some more pics soon, so I can get a better idea how big he is and what the costume looks like, etc.

Maybe it's the red hair, but I can easily see her playing the same kind of sweet but feisty Lois that Noel Neill did.

Hopefully this Lois won't turn into the same gooey eyed schoolgirl at the first sight of Superman though. It would be nice to see her start out a bit more intrigued or skeptical at first, and let the interest build a bit more gradually.

Well, I like it.

In some interviews for the 1990's Superman Animated series, it was revealed that the \S/ on the cape was too difficult to draw


The same situation can probably apply to the movie. It's too difficult to CGI on a flowing cape

The S on the back of the cape is a detail that has never really mattered to me, so it's not a big deal that it's not on there.

Yeah I remember Singer saying that it was too much of a distracting yellow blob on the back during flying tests for SR. Especially with how much that cape fluttered in the wind.

But still, I'm sure it could be doable if they really wanted to make it work.

My favorite one probably has to be the one on Dean Cain's cape. Loved the different tones of yellow they used.

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

Do we know if the shield is on the cape in the DC Superman relaunch?

It looks like Supes is publicly associated with Smallville - to the extent that the local BP station hawks Superman teeshirts. But who's "Plano," a LSH character?

@Dennis the S Shield has been shown on the Superman (George Perez written) book for the solicits to the cover of issue three.

The S on the cape doesn't work quite as well when the S on the chest is a raised detail anyway.

I like the idea that on Krypton they put name-tags on everything everyone owns.
