    You're right. However, this is not a new character, concept, or idea. It's one that is 75 years old.
    In my opinion is implied in every post. Please make an effort to remember that.

    My impression (perhaps incorrect) was that you implied Superman is or should be a new concept that does away with the character, concept, idea, and history that is Superman.

    Kinda the opposite with a little sarcasm thrown in for good measure.

    This entire thread has gone beyond the point of ridiculousness. The new costume is blue, has a red cape, and his symbol is across the chest. Yet some of you are crying out like whiny baby's because they added a few textures to it.

    This is the organic webshooters all over again. Christ.
    Life is but a dream.

    Meeps? MEEEEEEPS!

    Yup. I've been tempted to respond, but it's futile.

    Are you joking, or did the sarcasm go over your head?

    What's ridiculous is that people are arguing taste. If someone has a preference, they have a preference. It's not up to you or me or anyone else to police what everyone should like.

    That's a publicity photo, not a scene from the film. The military aren't going to trust him because he's a freak and a whole bunch of other freaks show up, with powers and abilities like his.

    There was a quick clip in the San Diego CC footage that showed our army escorting Superman, who walked down a long hallway, handcuffed.

    To address the issue of the film being too dark, I'm sure there will some darker and grittier elements in Man of Steel. Nevertheless, it's difficult to imagine it being too oppressively dark when you have Russell Crowe saying things like this: "It afforded me a wonderful job to put a specific thing in the minds of 14 year old boys, and that is the bravest thing that you can do, the most important thing you can do, is love."

    Why would anybody go to a superhero movie expecting hyper-realism? In any event, the Avengers movie's sales certainly didn't seem to be hurt by Captain American's new costume.




    This is Christopher Reeve as Superman. Yes, he looked great. But what worked back then doesn't work today.
    You don't know that. Superman Returns actually sold better than Batman Begins. If the classic Superman suit can't sell to modern movie audiences there's no way that should have even been possible.

    I don't see any good commercial, or aesthetic reason for changing Superman's suit for the latest movie. Honestly, is there any costume in the world more well-known than Superman's?

    Have no interest in what has already been done. Christopher Reeves is the past. The red trunks are the past. Time to move forward.

    Agreed. Of course, I do that by actually moving forward and looking for new stories, characters, and creators instead of dusting off seventy-five year old ones....
