Personally I like the new movie suit and the way Cavill looks in it just fine.
That nails it. Looks wrong without the shorts. The added red creates a better visual balance.
Yep, it makes a big difference. Just having a belt would make it better. I love the one on the bottom right.
But the one on the bottom right is just the same old typical Superman suit...boring. Time for something new.

I prefer the 'Returns' suit but he looks fine. Actor looks appropriate.
I like both suits about equally, but Cavill does seem to wear his a lot better.

And if he looks this good in spy photos in between takes, just imagine how awesome he'll look in the actual movie.
There's nothing shaky cam couldn't ruin.

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

I find it funny.

In the late 90's all these Superman movie idea's were being pinched from a dozen directors. Most of the ideas were non traditional

-A Superman that doesn't fly
-Knives
-Lex Luthor FBI agent
- Suit in a can
-Krypton surviving
-Jar Jar binks type character



Then Superman Returns comes out. It was basically doing things safely/by the book. No homicidal Superman or polar bears.

The only backlash was that Superman was seen as a stalker.

In Look, Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman, Jon Peters admitted that the Superman franchise was problematic for him: "The elements that I was focusing on were away from the heart, it was more leaning towards Star Wars in a sense, you know. I didn't realize the human part of it, I didn't have that."
I'd post a clip from the special but it's not on youtube. I think it's on the "Superman Returns" dvd.



Now we're at "Man of Steel" which was bold enough to change the suit drastically and is moving away from Donner Superman elements.


It's too early to tell if this movie will be a blend of 'by the book' elements or be totally out there.

The bottom right isn't the "same old" but tweaked in detail. It looks fine as an update of a design that isn't broken. The new one is just to show how kewl and avant they are. And I'm really hating that dark and faded blue---looks awful.

I'd take all the flying shots from the first two movies over Superman Returns anyday. Reeve on wires was much more convincing than the fake looking CGI Superman in Returns.
Agreed. Even though I know he's on wires, it's still such a convincing effect-- and so much closer to the real thing than CGI-- that I never grow tired of watching it. It helps that Reeve sold it so well with his graceful takeoffs and landings.

The only aspect I think SR did better was having the more fluttery cape when he's flying at superspeed.

One of the things I liked about him flying in SR is the depiction of his speed including the sonic boom he creates.

I will have to give SR another look sometime, but I never cared at all for Brandon Routh as Superman or Clark. There is just something about his appearance that doesn't work at all for me.

I think this technique from back to the future part 2 would be interesting to use

As the car passes the light post the model is transitioned to the real car

^^ Change for change's sake isn't necessarily an improvement.
