Add an eyepatch and Kal El could be Thor's other brother.
I love the pic of Crowe as Jor-El.
She will be 91 next month, bless her heart.
So, based on Jor-El's outfit Krypton = Middle Earth?
Looks like a futuristic Gladiator! Kidding. He looks good.
Well, I, for one, hate it! It looks NOTHING like what Jor-El would wear in the comics! Y'know, the one that hasn't stayed anything close to consistent for the past 75 years...
I guess the beard is inspired by Geoff Johns' run.
All he needs is a phone to toss!
The costuming in Man Of Steel is really beginning to depress me. Indeed every superhero flick seems to be smothering in over designed rubber.
Over designed rubber. How is what Crowe wearing "over designed"? It's an armour with a cape and the House of El crest on his chest.
Odin is Thor's dad?
The only over designed rubber is one that decreases sensitivity.
Jeez, at least it's not like they stuck him in a kelly green tunic with a big red-and-yellow sun emblem on it. That would have sucked.
I like that Crowe wears the Superman suit underneath. That way it's nothing special, it's just a "casual" piece of clothing on Krypton. It only becomes something special on Earth.
On a similar note I hope they put some emphasis on the fact that the Kryptonians don't have any extraordinary powers on Krypton, only on Earth.
I see that Jor-El's costume design in Morrison's Action reboot of the character splits the difference between the old style and incorporating some of the lines of Superman's new outfit as seen in this movie.
I'm think the last time he wrote some action music that wasn't Williams-generic was in his score for Jurassic Park: The Lost World
Indeed it is.
It's a fantastic piece of music.
Still, Williams as the composer is hardly an inspired choice - nowadays.
It's intersting to see a defense of the rubbery looking suit by some in this thread who bashed the first looks of Thor and cast in costume.
Well, no Jor-El design really evokes a "scientist" feel. His traditional Silver Age costume makes him look like a superhero, his Post-Crisis and Movie costumes make him look like some kind of monk or something.
I like it. It's not what you'd expect, and that's not a bad thing. Kind of looks like a nobleman from the Middle Ages or something. Maybe they're going for a Medieval look for Krypton instead of an Ice Age look. And yes, these costumes (including the 'rubber' aspect) always look better on film.
