My girl added more believable. I agree. And I am a fan who grew up loving the 1978 costume as is. Although I was never a fan of his Mom making the suit. So that might have made it easier for me to accept the change.

As far as the way the these colors are looking on the statue compared to the trailer and officially released stuff, I don't think it will be as dark as that in the final product on screen.

*edit. I should say not as pale.
