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

Yeah the red trunks aren't coming back any time soon...at least in the main New 52 continuity. If you want the red trunks, then I suggest those that do pick up the upcoming "Adventures of Superman" digital series. DC seems to be very pleased with the current design of the costume.

Coming late, but OMG, I really love that poster.

Re the underpants - I've found it difficult to take the whole 'underpants on the outside' thing since the brilliant cartoonist Steve Bell started drawing former UK Prime Minister John Major with his Y-fronts outside his suit in the early 1990s. For example:

I like. As for the red trunks thing, I think at this point they've become such a joke to the non-fans that it would be best if they stayed gone. I don't think the new designs in the comics and movie are to bad, although if I were designing them I would have tried to find a way to incorporate more red into them.

^Jokes about Superman wearing his underpants outside his trousers have been a staple for comedians and pop-culture references for years now.

And Spider-Man shooting webs. Guess he should stop doing that now. Or Batman hanging out with a little kid. So long, Robin! And Hulk? Just needs a nice cup of tea and a sit down.

It's worth pointing out that nowhere in the past three movies did Batman hang out with a little kid.

Haven't heard any Spiderman web-slinging jokes that I recall, so I can't comment on that one.

Nor did he in any of the other ones. Chris O'Donnell and even Burt Ward didn't exactly fit the description "little kid", did they?

If you'd actually bothered to read my previous post in context, instead of going off on an unrelated rant, you might have seen that I was simply replying to a beaker full of death's comment about never having heard non-fans comment about the trunks. Nowhere did I express a view on whether or not they should remain.

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

Jokes about Batman hanging out with a kid in tights have been (and still are) as much of a 'pop culture stable' as Superman's underpants (if not more so), regardless of what's happening in the latest movie or comic.

If people are gonna joke about it anyway then why worry?

^Again, you seem to be completely missing the point of what I'm saying. I was simply replying to the assertion that beaker had never heard non-fans talk about the trunks by pointing to the prevalence of references to them. I wasn't saying whether or not I thought that the makers of the movie should be influenced by those jokes.

I'm not in the least worried about whether or nor they remain. I thought the small trunks in Returns looked fine, I think the non-trunks in MOS look fine.
