I stopped reading when it called Cavill Australian. Seriously, the guy was born in jersey on the Channel Islands. It's right at the top of his Wikipedia article. Check your facts.
 
2012-11-27 05:34:48 PM  
So no underwear, just an uncomfortably visible gray bulge.

I guess I never had a problem with the cheesiness of Sups outfit. I mean, it's presumably homemade, right? It's not like he would be able to have it custom made for him, not to mention any replacement suits from the wear and tear it likely takes, without raising some suspicions about his identity, right? And for all his other talents and powers, I don't think "super tailoring skill" is one of them. Even if his mother was constantly stitching together customer suits for him, I doubt it would be out of woven Kevlar or hardened leather. So having a kind of cheesy spandex thing in bold primary colors doesn't bother me. He could pass off the purchase of materials as a fan boy making a cosplay entry or something. Just fly to a different Joanne's Fabric and pay in cash, no me is the wiser.

But this suit? All sculpted and vaguely armored... for some reason I can't fathom... It looks like something that Bruce Wayne would have to special order and hide under a million expense reports to purchase. Not exactly something a guy who's income is that of a newspaper reporter (not top notch pay these days) and possessing a moral code preventing him from just swiping materials or the suit itself, even for the greater good.

If you wanted to make a new, "realistic" super-suit that a guy like him is likely to put together, a pair of BDUs and a T-shirt would likely be what he would do. He is a Kansas farm boy, after all.

It's the director talking about why he didn't give him the red man-panties. We've seen the pics already, this is the explanation.

What about Kryptonian armor? Yeah, I know, hard to think about.

I actually don't mind the New52 look. The belt at least breaks up the line a bit. The solid blue armored unitard thing (armotard?) is weird just because you're expecting to see something there besides man-bulge.

They'll probably write in some bullshiat about it being made from "Kryptonian Nanofabric" or something.

Ok, I get it. I'm kinda slow.

But in thinking about it, I had a funny vision of Superman being sucked into a jet engine like Syndrome was, and instead of being splattered, good ol' Supie completely farks the jet engine up.

I would role with that if he hadn't been sent on an escape pod as a baby. To my knowledge, his birth parents didn't know he'd gain super powers under a yellow sun. And even if they did, I guess I wouldn't pack a battle suit for my baby I just want to live.

But still, I could roll with that. Or, if they keep the whole "crystals grow giant Fortress of Solitude" thing, it could theoretically grow an auto manufacturing device to make his suit.

After all, we are talking about Superman here. My suspension of disbelief can go pretty high.

Kind of, I suppose. A black shirt, an iron on decal, a pair of boots and easily replaced pants... little risk of being caught too.

To be fair, the first penis could undo reality as we know it, and the other could shatter the planet like a dinner plate with a good, erect dry hump. I'd be pretty threatened too.

I would have liked to have seen a Superman just in from Smallville movie.

The New 52 Action Comics started to get it right, he was young, just learning his powers, wore T-Shirt, jeans, work boots...
Didn't know he could breath in space...
A train knocked him the F out...

But then in a 5 or 5 issues he turned back into the same old Superman....

(the Smallville title is fantastic and MUCH better than Action Comics, though not drawn well at ALL)
 
2012-11-27 06:19:28 PM  
Why would superman need to wear armor? Isn't he basically indestructible except for a really rare (or common) meteor?

Superman Returns wasn't a reboot, it was a sequel to Superman II, ignoring the rest of the movies.

The most recent reboot of Superman from DC has his suit as standard regalia pertaining to the El family; it's also made out of high-tech nano-bots, not fabric.

SkunkWerks: So um... Lord of the Rings score in the trailer.

And I mean "interesting" in the Chinese sense.

I've heard critics say before that the problem with whatever it is they're reviewing is that it's reminding them of something much better that they could be watching. I've never had a moment like that until now. Okay, granted, I haven't seen the Superman movie, but when you're trying to sell me on how awesome it will be (the gambit you're usually playing in a trailer scenario), it's probably best not to distract me with something I already know is awesome, hmm?

Looks like he just walked in on something he wasn't expecting, something disgusting and yet oddly arousing to him...

It's placeholder music. The filmscore is never finished by the time the trailer comes out.

Is he taking a shiat in his suit in that pic...depends.
Has Clark always had such a severe part to his hair? That angle makes it look like he has a comb-over.

I get that. It's still a very tactically poor choice.

I watch that trailer and what I really am watching is Elijah Wood agonizing in silence just out the other side of Moria. This isn't the sort of thing you want happening to people watching a trailer.

Need_MindBleach: The filmscore is never finished by the time the trailer comes out.


Often not completed on a major film, but usually you have some major themes done for the trailer.

/Famously, the producers of the 1977 Superman only had three things when they put out the teaser trailer for that film: John Williams' Superman theme, a POV f/x shot of Superman flying through the clouds, and the tagline: You'll believe a man can fly.

It was a reboot of Superman 3. following Mario Puzo's original script for Superman 2 as much as possible.
