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

Interesting to note, in the director's cut of Superman 2, Lois (briefly) is wearing Supe's blue shirt.

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.
Spiderman's suit looked like it was rubbery, but also clothy. It looked like maybe he had it made, but definately could wear it and easily take it off. Same with Rouths suit, same with Trek (09) uniforms. This new suit doesn't have those qualities, it looks too rubbery and plastic even. It doesn't look like you could walk around easily with it on, nor does it look like you could wear it easily. It definately doesn't look Martha could have made it.

Another observation is that it has a zipper running down the back, which means it's a one piece. I was always under the impression that Superman's suit was a 3 or 4 piece. The shirt, the pants(with a belt), the cape and the boots. Maybe the cape is sown in, maybe it's not. I seem to remember Dean Cain's suit bieng that way and he had several in his closet, all made by Martha Kent.

I know i'm nitpicking, ussually I don't as much, but this suit just doesn't sit right with me. I like some aspects of it, but i'd prefer a more cloth like material, with not too much detail.
In the comics it's been everything. From a one piece ( including the boots!!!!) to a four piece.

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

It's amazing to hear people start b#tching about a movie that won't premiere for 2yrs and basing their complaints on it off a few shots from the movie site.

And it's funny reading complaints from some sites regarding how crappy the bad guys suits are both in Superman and The Avengers....do they not understand what CGI capture means?

As for changing Superman's looks,his look has changed many many times and I think most would agree that no one would want any Superman whether in Comicbooks or on film to look like how he originally did when first published.

Oh well guess it wouldn't be the Internet if someone wasn't b#tching about something.

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

Given the approach that Nolan successfully took to Batman, why did anyone think that he would produce a Superman movie that one could confuse with something Richard Donner did?

Speaking of Donner, I wonder what Krypton and the Fortress is going to look like? I hope they try something different than the crystal thing. I'm getting really tired of the crystal thing.

The fortress is going to be a van down by the river.

I loved the SR suit, but that thing looked rubbery and plastic as hell! This new suit looks much more practical and wearable to me.

I'm guessing it'll look a lot like those organic looking designs on his suit.

Me too. I am really looking forward to seeing what they're going to do with both. The Crystals and Krypton as a Hoth like world have grown old. Time for something new!

If Grant Morrison was writing this that wouldn't surprise me too much.

Please tell me in the 75 year history (besides the godawful ELECTRIC Supes Saga) that Superman has had his suit so drastically changed? I also mean the change in chest symbols.

How is this a "drastic" change? They removed the trunks (something that has happened with numerous other characters) and put in some extra texture here and there.

In every other respect, it's the same damn costume.

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

You're wrong. It's a blue unitard, red cape, symbol on the chest, red boots.

And yep, the costume has been changed more than that before - just not for a very long time. Nice overview of the costume, chest shield etc is here:

http://metropolisplus.com/Superman/



The ways in which the new version varies from the classic design, other than the long-overdue removal of the red Speedo, are pretty trivial.

If anything, the new version of the shield is proof that the costume designer did more research into the history of Superman's costume than the fans complaining about it have.

He wore Blue boots in some of his original adventures - what sort of fake fan are you that you are not aware of something that happened in two stories from 1938?
