Some of you guys spend an awful lot of time focused on the groins and nipples of other men.

... but why were there no nipples on the Batgirl costume?

For the people who think the red underwear are stupid and outdated...well, this is why they're important...

Honestly looking at the picture, to me it looks more like a product of the mannequin its on not the fact that theres an actual codpiece in it. but hey, keep up the manufactured outrage and all.

I really don't see the problem with a codpiece.

This is a skin-tight suit. I'd much rather see a generic bulge than be able to visually "check his pulse" from the groin area.

TFA: We don't come to see the films because of the strange little quirks in the designs or the rewrites of the character's thematic story lines that get tossed in. We come to see the films in spite of those changes, because we know that we don't generally get a vote and we're hoping the people who know more about film making than they do about comics aren't going to trash it too badly.

Actually, you do get a vote. Your farking ticket is a vote. Your insistence on buying the DVD/Blu-ray/Ultraviolet combo pack is a vote. Your purchase of the super-duper Director's Cut + resin scale model deluxe edition is a vote. And, despite the warnings of critics and the sensible movie-goers that know better (and just like the Republicans), you get duped into voting against your best interests all the farking time.

Stop going to see crap and the crap will disappear (to be replaced with a different genre of crap, but that's neither here nor there). This idiotic "I have to see it anyway, I'm a fanboy" attitude is exactly why they've got you duped into thinking we needed a Spider-Man reboot or another freaking Superman movie.

From the article: "We like the heroes because the people who created them in the first place got them right."


Superman originally was just fast, strong, and could jump very high, and was bulletproof due to dense flesh - he came from a high-gravity world. You know, "faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound"

No heat-vision, no flight, super-hearing, super-breath, etc.

So I'd say fans are OK with some modifications here and there.

Baldrick: My uncle Baldrick was in a play once.
Blackadder: Really?
Baldrick: Yeah, it was called Macbeth.
Blackadder: And what did he play?
Baldrick: Second codpiece. Macbeth wore him in the fight scenes.
Blackadder: So he was a stunt codpiece.
Baldrick: [Baldrick nods] Yes.
Blackadder: Did he have a large part?
Baldrick: Depends who was playing Macbeth.

Apparently, they were running low on krytonite deoderant that day....

Sorry, but no matter the reboots, I'll still have a special place in my heart for Christopher Reeve's Man of Steel.

I have to admit, I kind of like the new look. The red underwear always looked silly to me.

That said, yeah, they seriously need to downsize that bulge a little. A cup is good -- I'd really prefer to ignore Superman's package -- but this makes it look like he's got a constant hard-on.

Fortunately, the hysterical erotophobes who keep our nation safe from such atrocities as "nip slips" will force the studio to go back in and digitally geld the Man of Steel.

/A friend of mine once had the enviable job of digitally lengthening Elizabeth Shue's skirt in a scene from Hollow Man.

strangeluck: I felt deeply sorry for Arnold in that movie, he even said in interviews that he was miserable and in pain having to wear that god awful Mr. Freeze costume.

It apparently made him want to fark his housekeeper since the kid was born nine months after this was filmed.

Clooney would have had to do more than tweak his nipples to make that piece o' crap Batman movie into something worthy of nestling in the $2 bin at Walmart. He could have started by tweaking (throttling) the neck of his agent and then anyone involved in the production of the film.

I am not sure this is a new thing. I remember reading that they couldn't decide which side Superman "hangs" so Chris Reeve wore a cup

Mugato: FirstNationalBastard: ... but why were there no nipples on the Batgirl costume?

Well her uncle Alfred made it for her. Apparently there's a limit to Schumaker's depravity.

The Batman story itself is kind of weird. I mean, he takes in a young boy whose parents had just died, puts him in inappropriately short pants, and sends him out to fight homicidal maniacs?

An uncle crafting nipples for his niece's costume isn't quite as depraved as that. Besides, as far as we know, Babs had those Bai Ling nipples, and could have used the extra room so she didn't chafe.

strangeluck: I have nothing against George Clooney, I think he's a fine actor depending on the role, but Batman? Oh my god no, so wrong, so very very wrong

Eh, I blame the directer, Shumaker and the Godawful dialog. There's no reason why Clooney couldn't have been a good Batman in the right hands.
