    Looks like something that was designed for the "WITCHBLADE or THE DARKNESS comic books and NOT Superman......:rolleyes:

    Marlon Brando's costume looked nothing like what was in the comic either. Neither did Krypton or the Fortress of Solitude for that matter.

    I think by now everyone should know better than that.
    From Iron Man to Thor many have been whining about the rubber look of the suits in pictures only to have it end up looking just fine in the movies.

    Good points! It will be very interesting to see how this looks in the finished movie.

    Besides, in the first movie I think Jor-El was a politician before he was a scientist, since he was on the main Kryptonian council and sentencing Phantom Zone criminals to justice.

    With Crowe, he probably had some fisticuffs thrown in to his scripts. JUST what everyone loves...ACTION! :rolleyes:

    Jor-El is the head of the House of El and had a seat on the Kryptonian Council. The head of the house seems to have a seat on the Council. I've always found it interesting that the Council had Jor-El prosecute Zod, Non, and Ursa though at their trial.

    Yeah! We need more of a introspective film with limited action, like how Superman Returns was, cuz everybody LOVED that!

    Action should not be in a movie based on a character who first appeared in ACTION Comics!!! :rolleyes:

    ^ I liked SR very much myself, but even I can't deny that the film wasn't as warmly received by moviegoers and fans.

    Actually, fans shouldn't count since they mostly hate everything. ;)

    I actually like the way it was done in the Bruce Timm show: Jor-El himself wasn't on the Council, but his father-in-law was, which led to family politics messing with things.

    That, and Brainiac being the computer that ran Kryptonian Civilization (and doomed them by lying about Jor-El's claims about the planet exploding).

    One notices a thruline in Superman stories where they try and try and try to explain why no one believed the obviously corroborable theories.

    Or are they corroborable? With super-technology you can explain anything, I guess, but say the lithosphere on Earth was thickening to the point it surpassed its buoyancy limit; would we know?

    What they don't tell you is that Jor-El wrote a series of books about sparkling vampires before discovering Krypton was going to explode.

    I really don't mean this as a personal attack, but why do you seem so bitter about every. little. thing. about this movie? I mean, I'm not saying you can't have any negative opinions, and for all we know it may indeed end up like crap. Personally, I'm skeptical about Snyder. But all that being said, come on...

    Because in this "new" age of reboots or "reimaginings", I simply don't like what I have seen...I just don't understand, other than reading some posts on here, that people nowadays don't get what the concept of SuperMAN is really about.

    ^ How can you tell that the "Man of Steel" production team doesn't understand what Superman is all about from out of context set photos though?

    Captain Mike brings up a good point, is it SUPERman, superMAN, or SUPERMAN? And is it CLARK or clark?

    Based on the spy photo's I think the real answer is that it's LOIS lane.

    Superheroes are built upon the "old-fashioned" concept of people with extraordinary abilities using those abilities to help people. This is just to "naive" for our modern cynical world. "I must be suspicious of anyone claiming to be good, so I don't get burned!". That's why we can't get a decent kid-friendly super-hero film---the "cool" people won't allow it.

    Jor-El is just part of the liberal conspiracy - he only wants you to believe that Krypton is going to blow up because they wants to tax businesses as part of their social engineering and attempts to restrict our freedoms. Many legitimate scientists have shown that his models are wrong and that the changes that we see are simply a natural event that we see every few thousand years.

    Bottom line - it's a scam as explained on Kryptofox news by OREIL.-LY
