If only more people were this open-minded. I do think most people have been won over by this new take on Supes costume, but there was an initial resistance. Glad that's over though. I love how alien the new suit looks. None of his other live action costumes showcased the alien element all that well. I think SR tried to do a bit of this, but eventually fell flat. It wasn't a horrible costume in my opinion, but the S on his chest was horrific. And it made Routh look skinny somehow.
I've seen movies and shows where Routh looked very fit, even kinda buff. But somehow the SR costume totally changed his physical appearance.
