You're wrong too, of course. Speedo is a brand name - you might remember to capitalize properly from now on - and they make a range of mens swimwear in many styles.
Jeepers, thanks for the edumacation.
You know damn well I was referring to a particular style of especially skimpy bathing attire that is in the popular consciousness referred to generically as a "speedo."

I'm sure that from here forward we can expect to see Superman's costume change and evolve in both the comics and future films in the same way that Batman and Wonder Woman's have - the initial resistance to changing it once after so many decades has been broken at last and anything's possible.
What change? The longest running changes have been the eagle to w (and back again) and the intermittent yellow circle. Or are you nitpicking the height in centimeters of the boots or whether the "S" on the cape is all yellow?

These characters' looks have been consistent since their inception (after some initial refinement in a few instances). People like them that way. Major changes are always temporary. Amazing how some people keep falling for them time after time.

Personally, I see no reason why they have to change ditch the trunks for the comic. Superhero costumes - in whatever form - work better in the comics. The general public doesn't read the comic anyway. They won't get confused.

That looks pretty damn good. Though I'd still like to see a little gold in the belt.

Can someone post more pictures of the new costume? I have a yearning for more SuperCrotch. Does anyone think they'll smooth that over in post?

Don't worry. A little kryptonite will shrink that right down.

It really looks excellent.

I think in the next go-around they might want to downplay the boots a little bit.

Actually if anything, they might decide to adopt Snyder's costume for the comics, if the movie proves popular enough. Or at least something similar.

Personally I think it's a better solution than what Lee came up with (although that costume is growing on me as well).

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

You don't understand. The Speedo is just so self-evidently right and eternal that the public outcry against this travesty will force the hands of the editors.

Or something. Maybe some fans imagine that the Return of the Speedo is such a cosmically irresistable publicity lure that next summer DC will be hyping Crisis On Infinite Jockey Shorts or something.

^ It was only a "speedo" in the last movie. And frankly, if someone's going to be running around in tights, I'd just as soon they cover their super-junk.

What is it with you and pants? First wonder woman's granny pants and now superman's speedo.
