I do not remember anyone complaining about the 1978 Superman movie costume. Aside from that, yeah, almost every costume from production since the 80s suffered some criticism. Most deserved it.
Maybe not back then, but people sure complain about it now.
They also didn't have the internet back then, so any whining wasn't easily transmitted & broadcasted.

No, the 32 years is the far more sensible approach in terms of looking at this. Light years ahead of your poor attempt.

Zod was used in Smallville as well.

Luthor in Returns
Zod in Man of Steel
Gus Gorman and Nuclear Man in the next?

Zod was used in one major motion picture 32 years ago. There is no evidence that the character is over used.

^ Clever.

Zod is an interesting character anyway. While of course not essential to the upcoming film, there's an opportunity in Zod to explore what it is about Kal-El that makes him want to use his powers for good, versus taking advantage of them to rule Earth. Evil Kryptonians on Earth provide the contrast for comparison.

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

The only problem I have with Zod is that it seems to signal a lack of creativity. We've seen Zod and his co-horts in a theatrical film; so the producers need only copy a few familiar aspects and call it a day. Why not something never seen in the theater? Why not Brainiac? Why not Metallo? Why not Parasite? Why not Bizarro? This is what Nolan did with Begins - he gave us Scarecrow and Ra's al Ghul (two never before attempted villains). With Superman they decided to just tread old ground. On its face, it's disappointing.

That said, the film may be fantastic; there's no way to know until we see it. But I go into the film with low expectations based on their choice of theme (Superman vs Zod).

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

This is a different version of Zod. Michael Shannon won't be playing the Terrance Stamp version that we're all familiar with, we are also getting Faora instead of Ursa, we've only seen Faora in "Smallville". As I mentioned before, I wouldn't be surprised if we get Brainiac in the sequel.
