    I agree the trunks will always be in the public's mind

    Jeepers, thanks for the edumacation.
    You know damn well I was referring to a particular style of especially skimpy bathing attire that is in the popular consciousness referred to generically as a "speedo."

    What change? The longest running changes have been the eagle to w (and back again) and the intermittent yellow circle. Or are you nitpicking the height in centimeters of the boots or whether the "S" on the cape is all yellow?

    These characters' looks have been consistent since their inception (after some initial refinement in a few instances). People like them that way. Major changes are always temporary. Amazing how some people keep falling for them time after time.

    QFT.

    Personally, I see no reason why they have to change ditch the trunks for the comic. Superhero costumes - in whatever form - work better in the comics. The general public doesn't read the comic anyway. They won't get confused.

    That looks pretty damn good. Though I'd still like to see a little gold in the belt.

    Can someone post more pictures of the new costume? I have a yearning for more SuperCrotch. Does anyone think they'll smooth that over in post?

    Don't worry. A little kryptonite will shrink that right down.

    It really looks excellent.

    I think in the next go-around they might want to downplay the boots a little bit.

    Actually if anything, they might decide to adopt Snyder's costume for the comics, if the movie proves popular enough. Or at least something similar.

    Personally I think it's a better solution than what Lee came up with (although that costume is growing on me as well).

    You don't understand. The Speedo is just so self-evidently right and eternal that the public outcry against this travesty will force the hands of the editors.

    Or something. Maybe some fans imagine that the Return of the Speedo is such a cosmically irresistable publicity lure that next summer DC will be hyping Crisis On Infinite Jockey Shorts or something.

    hate the suit. At first I kind of like how dark the blue was, because it mad it distinctly different than Donner/ Singer versions, plus it has more attitude. But without trunks or any color by the belt, it looks more like he works as a SCUBA diver. Can't believe they are afraid of the trunks. Sure they might seem silly, but Superman wouldn't care.

    Lee's costume is better than the movie one. I much prefer the belt over go-faster stripes.

    I hope so. Superman without his trunk will always look to me like he had to get dressed real quickly and forgot something in the process.
