Superman is Superman no matter what costume he's wearing. He's about character and ideals, not what flavor spandex he has on. No kid ever said "Wow look at those shorts! This guy is awesome!"

Anyway. I'm fine with the classic costume in the comics and cartoons, and even in the movies if they were going for a more 4-color tone, but with the more grounded feel of this film I don't think it'd work.

Just my 2ยข

*Not trying to play the 'bigger fan than you' card, it's just a rejection of this 'blame the younger generation' nonsense.
Did kids ever say "Wow look at those shorts....this guy's stupid"?
