Add an eyepatch and Kal El could be Thor's other brother.

I love the pic of Crowe as Jor-El.

I like that design.
More or less off topic, interesting fact: In a couple weeks they're going to be doing a "Wild West Festival" at a park in Glendale, and one of their celebrity guests is Noel Neill, the second Lois Lane in the original George Reeves Superman TV show. It claims it's going to be her last public appearance.
She will be 91 next month, bless her heart.

So, based on Jor-El's outfit Krypton = Middle Earth?

Well, I, for one, hate it! It looks NOTHING like what Jor-El would wear in the comics! Y'know, the one that hasn't stayed anything close to consistent for the past 75 years...

I guess the beard is inspired by Geoff Johns' run.

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

The costuming in Man Of Steel is really beginning to depress me. Indeed every superhero flick seems to be smothering in over designed rubber.

Over designed rubber. How is what Crowe wearing "over designed"? It's an armour with a cape and the House of El crest on his chest.

The only over designed rubber is one that decreases sensitivity.

Jeez, at least it's not like they stuck him in a kelly green tunic with a big red-and-yellow sun emblem on it. That would have sucked.

I like that Crowe wears the Superman suit underneath. That way it's nothing special, it's just a "casual" piece of clothing on Krypton. It only becomes something special on Earth.

On a similar note I hope they put some emphasis on the fact that the Kryptonians don't have any extraordinary powers on Krypton, only on Earth.

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

I see that Jor-El's costume design in Morrison's Action reboot of the character splits the difference between the old style and incorporating some of the lines of Superman's new outfit as seen in this movie.
