Welcome to my Wednesday nights.
You gotta stop hanging out in the alley behind the Blue Oyster bar.
Ok, I'm having a total brain fart.... what movie is that from? I'm thinking it's either Animal House, Revenge of the Nerds, or Stripes, but I can't remember which.
As said, Police Academy. Funny shit.

Ah, well I was close. It's the same kind of movie from that period.

I was curious how he would look with a red belt:



Pretty freakin' sweet, IMO.

Just that little change makes all the difference. I actually am liking the suit ok, bur prefer the traditional. The material on this one really throws me off.

There's no reason to fear modernity and change even if it isn't necessary. He still looks like Superman overall, so I don't see anything radical with the outfit. I would support a gold (or actually, red) belt, but I see nothing wrong with the movie's interpretation. We're not talking about Tim Burton's suit here.
The Burton suit was fine. They even retooled the comics to go more that direction, all black, after the movie. Prior he was still wearing the blue/grays.

It was the Schumacher suit with nipples that was an atrocity.
Tim Burton Superman suit, not Batman suit.

TheSeeker was right. The second one is technically fairly faithful, it just looks stupid because of Nicholas Cage. The point being, this "redesign" people are complaining about is a tweak. That was a horrid redesign.

Please pardon my ignorance, but is that Cage stoner face a Photoshop job, or is that really the way Nick/Supes was going to look?

Hmm. Perhaps I was wrong about the 'shop.

I'm glad this didn't happen if for no other reason than Cage is totally wrong to play Superman.
