Dude is looking to have the physique down... (no homo)
Info? Comic Con?
yes and supposedly an iron man 3 teaser as well.
I want to see this movie made....an older out of shape Superman
Failing that, Christopher will always be my favourite Superman
As a kid I thought he was too scrawny. Now I think he's awesome. He really sells the supersuit, which apparently Cavill struggled to do. No plastic enhancements or tiny S logos needed.
Would like to see the shots of Cavill in the original togs.
Cavill or Routh? Because the article I posted just said Cavill pulled it off.
Routh is Reeves scrawny and at some scenes, it did remind you of Reeves, which was a good thing thing because that made it possible to pull off the weak Clark Kent. Cavill is really built though, like he could actually be a Superhero so it might be more difficult to make him look geeky or nerdy as Clark, he'd have to wear a boxy Hugo Boss suit from Macys to pull it off.
Not original but close enough?
Sure, he says that ... But Cavill looked so good and convincing in the iconic original that they felt compelled to change it?
Still don't see the point of a belt buckle and no belt.
^ To be fair, if you're talking about putting Cavill in the same exact suit as Reeves and slapping that on film, it would honestly look dated in 2013.
I think they planned to have a whole new suit to begin with. I remember Snyder talking about that from the start. They wanted a whole new generation Superman and DC comics' New 52 series coincides with that as well so it makes even more sense.
There's a compromise to be had ... If they'd gone with the original design in the materials used for Cavill's suit, it could have looked really cool. I like a lot about Cavill's suit -- the colors, even the muted S -- but the extraneous detailing, weird belt situation and general business let it down. It may be fine for 2013, but it will look dated in short order.
I'd really like to see the original design done up right. I don't think we've had an iconic take on it yet.
I don't mind the general characteristics of the new suit but it just isn't the same without the briefs.
Snyder also wanted it be more "alien"-like, as if it actually came from Krypton and that is what those weird new designs are including the chainmail-like texture. I believe the OG costume was out of the question from the beginning.
At the end, just like SpiderMans costume in the ASM, it'll likely look much better in action.
I don't think this will age quick though, it's different enough w/o going too modern. It actually has somewhat a classic look with the medieval inspiration and design.
