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.

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."
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.
This is Christopher Reeve as Superman. Yes, he looked great. But what worked back then doesn't work today.
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?
Please check out my new anime blog:
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....
