Not going to post the pictures but there are a bunch of spy shots of Superman on Twitter today. His costume looks amazing. Perfect even. Well done Gunn.

I'm complete opposite...
I'm enjoying HoD, but GoT was an absolute game changer show for me.
I didn't know the books or the story so I went in blind.
I still remember the first episode with the awesome overhead shot of them going North of the wall and encountering the wight. And then Ned lopping off the survivor's head. I was hooked.
HoD is a companion piece.
People forget how transformative the first three books and equivalent TV content were on both their respective media forms. The books were one of the first real deviations from the huge series of LOTR clones or basic ***** hero's journey stores.

Then the TV show brought fantasy mainstream. It was basically the first truly successful fantasy show, really hadn't ever been done before without some veneer of camp. And it was an absolute cultural phenomena. Pretty much opened the door for everything that's come since.

It was so much fun watching that with people who didn't know the books, especially with cursory experience with fantasy. It was basically a mirror to how I reacted to the books. "Wait, what. They killed Ned? They can't do that!?!?"

Also it gave us this:

I saw the pictures and I'm going to disagree with you on this one. The color scheme and design are on point but the fit is horrible.

Design is perfect. I’m not worried about the fit because they will just clean it up in post processing. No different then when they digitally improve an actors abs or make Tom Cruise look younger.

Spy shots shouldn’t be used for anything other than the look and feel these days. Everything is perfected after filming.

I hope so because even the CW Superman costume fit way better. The Henry Cavill spy shots fit way better than this before CGI’ing anything.

Cavil was massive for those films but the suit had a bunch of fake muscles and padding to give it that look. Snyder went for a hyper masculine design that came across fake. Sane with Batman looking back.

I prefer them going for a more natural look. It’s not like Superman even needs to be ripped for his powers to work.
