I am 100% sure that a cloth costume would be received very negatively by this new generation of viewers who are not as familiar with superman.
I know that the Man of Steel suit in the context of the film is suppose to be Kryptonian body armor, not just a rubber suit. I don't agree with that opinion that Superman needs that. Spider-Man's costume was cloth, Captain America's costumes were cloth, and not received very negatively in the eyes of a new generation.

You've convinced me. Well played, sir. It's great to debate with someone who has the hard facts to back up what they say
