I'd be all for a black Superman, although I'd go with someone like Isaiah Mustafa or Chiwetel Ejiofor rather than Wil Smith.

Then they should just call the movie ICON.

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

Given Serenity--and I'm not typecasting here, I've seen dude in other films where he plays a non-dick well--Chiwetel Ejiofor would probably make a better Lex Luthor. I really liked how he held the tension between evil and duty in that, and I think that would be a really, really refreshing break from the "evil real estate developer" Luthor that the films never seem to get away from even when they have a talent like Spacey who could fill the screen from floor to ceiling and wall to wall with bombastic but heartfelt villainy.

That is, the funnest part of modern-day Luthor is his cognitive dissonance and deluded belief that he's the champion of humanity, and Ejiofor could easily bring that.

However: I do not know how he looks bald. And this is key.

^ That would actually be an awesome choice for Luthor.

Any normal person shouldn't really give a shit as long as who they cast is the absolute raddest actor for the part.

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

I was looking at more images from the set where you can see the front of the suit...

It does look like no red trunks. At least from what I can see in the first one...I actually like the darkness of the blue...I know some don't.

Without the trunks and yet still with red boots he's gonna look like he's wearing long underwear.

Though I never understood the argument on why getting rid of the red trunks is better than having them, the look of the suit with or without them is going to be just as silly in the larger scope of things. You are just not use to it.

Besides, from the earlier pic, it seems like he is wearing a belt. That'll break it up. Hell, just look at Nolan's Batman suit. All black, with just a gold belt. Same thing with Flash.

I like the dark blue also. I think it will look nice in the movie. I bet once we see the guy with the big red cape in action his lack or red outer underwear will look fine.

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

I've always been a fan of dark blue. I thought the lighter shade of blue they used for the Superman Returns outfit was all wrong.

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

I'm fine with the dark blue, but I thought the rich blue on the SR suit was just about perfect myself.

I hate to say it, but if anything looked "wrong", it was that light teal blue on Reeve's suit.

I have absolutely no problem with the new suit at all which surprises me.

Nothing definitive about the trunks yet from what I can see.

It's interesting that in none of the pictures can we quite make out the trunk area.

In fact, it's so interesting that I'm getting a twinge of déjà vu from the Wonder Woman pilot: dangle some pics on the net to gauge fan reaction before committing to the final costume, anybody?

I'll play for the studio lurkers: my vote is keep the trunks. But if it makes you happy, sans trunks isn't going to be enough to make me hate your film.
