That looks super!
Yeah, I like having the shield on the cape too.
@davejames if I had money I would probably seriously buy that! That looks stunning.
I guess Superman returns to the Kent Farm.
Thanks guys. Hopefully we'll get some more pics soon, so I can get a better idea how big he is and what the costume looks like, etc.
Ditto, fabulous workmanship so far
Well, I like it.
In some interviews for the 1990's Superman Animated series, it was revealed that the \S/ on the cape was too difficult to draw
The same situation can probably apply to the movie. It's too difficult to CGI on a flowing cape
The S on the back of the cape is a detail that has never really mattered to me, so it's not a big deal that it's not on there.
Yeah I remember Singer saying that it was too much of a distracting yellow blob on the back during flying tests for SR. Especially with how much that cape fluttered in the wind.
But still, I'm sure it could be doable if they really wanted to make it work.
My favorite one probably has to be the one on Dean Cain's cape. Loved the different tones of yellow they used.
Do we know if the shield is on the cape in the DC Superman relaunch?
It looks like Supes is publicly associated with Smallville - to the extent that the local BP station hawks Superman teeshirts. But who's "Plano," a LSH character?
@Dennis the S Shield has been shown on the Superman (George Perez written) book for the solicits to the cover of issue three.
Ah, okay then.
The S on the cape doesn't work quite as well when the S on the chest is a raised detail anyway.
I like the idea that on Krypton they put name-tags on everything everyone owns.
ha ha!! I never saw the point in the show, and hate prequels in general.
^^ LOL. They must be a very possession oriented society. I think most of the citizens have their family crest emblazoned on their clothing. At least in the New Krypton retcon they did.
I assume it's like that episode of Seinfeld where the mayor's aide suggested that everyone in New York where a name badge, but instead of it ending his career, he was elected Emperor of Kandor.
Fun fact: that particular take on Krypton makes drawing Kryptonians a kind of a pain in the ass because you have to come up with all these different symbols (and for the women, figure out how to pencil it over the topography of their breasts at all sorts of dumb angles, which is really annoying). Poor Gary Frank.
they did in the Reeve movies also. I think Marlon Brando wanted the S on his costume to mirror the S on Superman's outfit.
Kryptonians seemed like an enigmatic bunch though. they knew of the "various concepts of immortality" but couldn't stop a star from exploding.
^ We're talking about the Donner Verse.
@Myasischev yeah Frank and the other artists after him had to come up with the symbols that weren't used in the movies. What I like about what Johns did though is that he incorporated all incarnations of Krypton that we have seen. The Golden Age/the Bryne era with the green robes and puffy white piping, etc.
