i wouldnt mind something real either, but to say that "bright is unrealistic" is a contradiction, because of today's fashion statement. the main reason that Superman is a brightly colored individual is because of the principles he stands for. there's a reason Batman looks the way he does, and the same goes for Superman. a brighter color tone can word for Superman... no, i dont think Donner bright will cut it anymore, but a brighter tone than what we had in MOS is doable. when that Hardees/Carl's Jr commercial came out, i personally think they had the suit dead spot on IMO... if you compare my last manip to the shots of Supes in that commercial, it's literally the same color tones that i used, just in a slightly desaturated hue
The colors that i see around me look nothing like what i see in a comic book. In comic books things are way more vibrant and stylized. Snyder wants a serious tone in his superman movies, so thatīs what youīre getting.
This is not about what you like or think itīs right. This is about the directorīs vision for this particular universe, and thatīs well defined. He can always change the colors, but to go brighter with them would be to go against what he prefers, and i donīt see why that would happen.
