    Clark appears to buy his pants from the same store as Bruce Banner.

    Wow, that is one dark and gritty looking Clark Kent.

    Well, the Superman suit may be padded but I'm not sure where - gods know Cavill doesn't look like he needs it. He's got to be the most muscular actor to play this part by a country mile.

    I like the shirtless pics. It's a good look for Supes. ;)

    ^ LOL. Ace Reporter Lois Lane!! I still remain unchanged in my excitement for this film and eagerly continue to await the first teaser trailer and poster. I doubt anything like this will come this year. I think we've discussed a few possibilities in this thread but I can't see a trailer coming until first quarter next year.

    The Clark/Superman thing could be solved by having Superman rush in and rush out of the action, giving nobody time to take a closer look at him or even think about taking a closer look at him.

    Get rid of the stupid suit and let him wear a red/blue Superman-speedo as his costume. They can explain that it's the traditional kryptonian armor yellow sun variant.:drool:
    It would also once and for all explain why nobody recognizes Clark as Superman, "His face? Uh ... I think he had one ... next time I'll look at his face, I swear!".

    Early in the Byrne reboot, Lois remarks (more than once, IIRC) on the fact that Kent is really built. In this version everyone knows that he was a star football player at Smallville High, as well.


    That's what they're doing wrong in the DC relaunch - they should get rid of everything but the red Speedo...:lol:

    In some of the pics of him in the suit, when you blow them up, you can see the suit is see through, and it's so thin and form fitting, really, the only difference in him wearing it, or simply wearing a speedo is the color of the skin, and wether the hair is visible or not

    I love the chest hair, so I still vote for the speedo or full length pants. I'm really happy they didn't wax his chest.

    I will NOT watch the movie if they do that ... no, that's not true, I will watch the movie, but I will bitch about the missing chest hair until everyone's ears are bleeding. Worst use of CGI ever!

    I think there's still clearly padding in the suit (especially noticable in the weirdly flat abs), but it's only enhancing what he already has, and not trying to give him something that he doesn't.

    I've always been fond of the never-run-with idea that Superman just doesn't have body hair. It would completely obviate all that nonsense about how he shaves with a mirror and his heat vision, which doesn't even make sense. X-rays would, I believe, not be reflected by most commercial mirror material. Maybe Clark made his own platinum-silicon carbide mirror.

    Now if you'll excuse me I've got to go give myself a swirlie.

    So essentially the 1978 movie again?

    Everybody and his mother knows the origin of Superman, but since it has Zod it would be good to see him say "you will kneel before me! if not you, then one day, your heirs!!" :lol:

    What kind of weights does a Kryptonian need to push to get these muscles?

    I'm "the one you least suspect" hasn't worn thin. Even though Clark has a different personality to Superman, come on their both the same height, same facial features, even very similar vocal patterns lol...
