I still like the "Earth 2" S design. This costume looks very much like the new Jim Lee version of Superman. I think that this will translate more to real world action than the traditional red and blue design.

Opposite. Now with the details revealed I think it looks fucking stupid. There's no reason his suit should look like rubber and the detailing looks like shit. They couldn't leave well enough alone.

Fucking morons. First JJ's stupid looking Trek film and now Supes ls starting to look like shit.

There are many more practical, real-word applications for rubber gear than there are spandex.

They definitely seem to be emphasizing the alien aspect in the design.
So, yeah. From the ornamentation, I'm getting the vibe that this is going to be specifically something that Kryptonians would have worn? So, going one step beyond Ma Kent sewing something together from the blankets in his space capsule, and being an article of wear actually from Krypton?

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

The funny alien detailing is the only part of the suit I'm not sold on yet. I suppose the parts on his back and sides kinda look like a back brace, which works given that he's essentially a circus strongman. So it's a different way of evoking the design's origins if they're not using the red panties. I don't like the random lines running down the legs, though – as it stands, they look like there's either too much detail or not enough, depending on if you want a classically minimalist superhero costume or a modern, detail-heavy outfit.

But don't take that as negative-nellying. The rest of the costume looks totally ass-whooping major kickin' badass. The cape alone rocks my world.

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

I'm not liking the suit. I like the colors and I like the shield and the cape, but I don't like the rubber. How is Clark Kent wearing that under his clothes? I would prefer something like my avatar, which to me would be a good way to keep it traditional in style,but also modern. It looks like the cape is detachable there. Another thing i'd like to see is the S on the back of the cape. Not the solid yellow, but the red and yellow, I really like that. All of the other stuff seems unneccesary.

The suit does look post modern and not the 'classic' look and I like it overall. I cannot however stop from imagining how great Brandon Routh would look in it.

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

How is Clark Kent wearing a rubber material suit underneath his clothes? The same way that Superman Returns Clark Kent wore it. Same way Peter Parker wore his suit in "Spider-Man".

@StarTrek1701 I can't believe I'm saying this but I agree with you. Brandon would look great in this suit. I'm very pleased with Cavil so far, but I think Routh would still be great.

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

Never liked Routh as Superman, personally.

Anyway, I'm not 100% sold on the suit. I'm not exactly against it either but it's not exactly "blowing my skirt up" so to speak.

I still think the red "briefs" part should be there or at least something more of color in the waist area and the ribbing and texturing on it makes it look just too busy. Nor do I like the alligator skin look of it. I also think his, um, "area" is over emphasized.

It's looks decent enough, I suppose, but I think it could have been done better.

It's Superman with go-faster stripes!

The thing that strikes me is that they wanted rid of the trunks - fine - but it's blindingly obvious that even the suits agreed it looked strange without so they've overcompensated a little in my eyes.

It's not awful by any stretch of the imagination though (Cavill himself looks great), and a billowing cape will do wonders for it.

Specific lighting, color correction - there's a lot that goes into how everything finally appears.

If all of what can be seen is Cavill's actual physique, he's the most muscular guy ever to play this part.
That's just what I was thinking. Though Routh's suit made him look less ripped and muscular than he actually was!

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

Oh, I like that - especially what they've done with the "belt."

The "S" shield is the best version on a live-action costume ever. It captures the classic design.

Cavill himself looks just awesome in it. Like Superman.
