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

I don't think they are purposely avoiding showing us his trunks. It truly amazes how we can focus on one aspect of a suit or a character's facial features and spending a page or two on it. It's really not a big deal.

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?
No.

From the spy pics, it looks like there are indeed "trunks", but they're just the same blue as the rest of the suit. Probably just so it doesn't look like he's wearing pajamas or a wetsuit.

As for changes from the official pic, it looks like the shield is a bit less curved and more angular as well. And clearly they changed the hairstyle.

I'm fine with that. At some point you've gotta say goodbye to things.

Yeah, everyone needs to lay off of Clark's area. It's unseemly.

Superman's suit in the comics is up for a pretty radical redesign, so by the time the movie comes out a redesign for the movie will be pretty much in the spirit of the new DC. Although, the Earth 2 style insignia is an interesting choice.

I'm not convinced that Superman's outfit is game for 'radical redsign'. Any modern redsign is usually only a temporary measure that instantly dates.

However, I'm not going to lose any sleep over a lack of red undies despite my preference for their inclusion.

I really like the cape. Even though those pictures are obviously from a great distance I think they look good. It really does look like Superman walking down a street.

The cape is fantastic. The shield is great as well. I can live with no trunks.
