The raised textured S is my only complaint about the suit.
Yeah, aside from the aforementioned Thor comparison, it also kinda reminds me of the Spawn cape, as far as the size of it goes at least.
That's pretty much my take on it too. Stills can only convey so much.
Yeah I agree with davejames, he doesn't look like a douche (that's Smallville Clark ) he is posed pretty much like a Jim Lee drawing. I'm kind of surprised they didn't add the glowing red heat vision eyes.
At least he doesn't look like a skinny dude who worked out a few months in the gym. That's partly what killed Routh Supes for me. He had the wrong frame. Call me picky if you will. Ironically enough, I saw a pic of Routh after the movie was done and he actually looked better for the role. Maybe he spent a few more months at the gym for the doomed sequel.
I think Tom could have pulled it off on the show and look halfway like Superman...but the writing really failed them and well...you know.
You've been around more than long enough to know not to do this, so you've got an infraction for flaming. Don't do this.
Yeah, I'll admit...I don't think I've ever read a Superman comic. I'm a TV show, radio show, cartoon, Donnerverse, Christopher Reeve IS Superman kind of guy. So I get it if this is in some way a classic comic interpretation of Supes.
Just, to me, compared to Reeve, this guy looks like he's gonna' go beat up a nerd and steal his girlfriend, then try to calm his roid rage with a drinking bender...and perhaps a bank robbery.
hence SuperGuido. Haha still funny.
^ In case anyone is wondering what ObiWanShinobi is talking about...
I think people went too far with the Jersey Shore references and saying Snooki should be Lois.
Those sites comment board never ceases to amaze me with what they say. It seems to be no different on other sites like IMDB, etc.
Oh, jeez...I actually think that's kinda' funny.
I am sure the parody will be hitting a YT near you soon.
The first twelve people anywhere who Photoshop Tom Welling's head onto this picture should be barred from posting on the Internet for the rest of their natural lives.
1 down 11 to go.
That's horribly done.
I liked what they've done from the look of the first picture. I remember shaking my head in disappointment when I first saw Reynolds as GL, but Cavill as Supes looks badass. Not quite sure how I feel about the hair. I'm not too put out that the curl seems to be gone, perhaps it should've been removed a long time ago. I don't know anyone rocking a single hanging lock like that anyway these days.
Superherohype forums are populated by folks who can't make the I.Q. cutoff for the AICN Talkbacks.
I'll reserve judgement for now but my first impression is that I am really glad he looks like a super MAN. Sorry Routh.
While there are things to nitpick about (the fish scales, the funny S), there's nothing here to warrant an outright complaint, so far anyway. Unlike the last go-round when I was puking on first sight.
In other words, so far, so good.
One popular reviewer in 1978 described Reeve as "Superboy with an overbite."
