Default Re: It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's the Superman Costume Thread! - Part 2

Since Super Kal brought it up, I have to admit, I really hate the nano-suit idea. To me, the idea of Superman pressing a button or something and his suit spreading over his body just screams cheesy 80s or 90s cartoons and stuff like PowerRangers. Yes, I know the classic solution of Superman hiding his cape and boots under his clothes strains credibility but, to me, the nano-suit idea is more offensive because it undermines the understated, serious, realistic (for lack of a better word) approach the filmmakers seem to be taking with Man of Steel. General audience moviegoers will ignore the problem of the boots and cape, just like they ignore Batman's eye makeup and other such problem inherent in the genre provided they are caught up the story and what is going on onscreen. I think they will be more put off by the silliness of a Power Rangers style suit up. It would just be jarring.
