I don't think we'll ever see the trunks come back in any medium for quite some time. I think when the SR costume got the flack that it did, considering it was more or less the classic design, that was the final nail in the coffin for the trunks.

If I was WB and knew the design would be nitpicked to death regardless, at least I would make an effort to appeal to a broader audience by removing the trunks, which is what they did.
