It troubles me slightly that there is a belt buckle but no belt, like a child didn't colour him in correctly.

That's only because you think it's a belt buckle when it's not even a buckle.

It's a yellow circle and we don't know its function.

That's just Shannon's head. There was even a joke in one of the BE episodes when one character remarked that Shannon's character has a big head.

I have to say, Henry's face in that shot (with Lois and Faora) looks more like Superman than ever to me. Which is saying a lot.

He does look great in that shot. Even costume colors look great and his hair () looks like classic Curt Swan style minus the curl. I hope we get a full HD version of it soon.

Funny, but when I look at these pictures, I don't see Superman. I don't see Lois. I don't see the superhero I've loved since I was a little girl.

I see a 75-year-old pop culture icon being updated for the sake of 'relevancy' - and not in a good way. DC and WB are attempting to turn him into a hip, edgy, brooding character. Those characteristics describe Batman, but they should never describe Superman.

Superman is supposed to be a shining beacon of hope. Incidentally, the last guy to play Superman summed it up nicely:

Quote:
(On making Superman darker) You make the stakes higher, you make the villain darker, I think that's a way to do it. But I don't think Superman himself needs to be darker. He definitely has to struggle, but I don't think Superman should ever be dark and brooding, that's not his nature. And that's not what people want to see.

I must have missed the part where Superman has revised "the symbol of hope" aspect.

You're right. This isn't your childhood icon. Man of Steel is a modern tale because your Superman doesn't connect with the audience anymore.

^ No need to be so inflammatory. But why should it be either/or? Could it be that Clark starts out rather broody and emotional because he has to "hide himself" for most of his life, had his original parents die, is repressed because he'd be too dangerous if he lost his temper against humans, only to become less stressed and more lighthearted as he embraces the role of Superman?

The thing is he can't spend the whole movie being "classic" Superman. He has to get there first.

It's a fair criticism, but I think the appeal of the 'timeless' Superman, who is routed in post war Middle America, is seeing how a more modern context reacts to him, and him to it. I am not so naive to suppose that the world is somehow more 'complicated' now than it was then, but it is different, and that is bound to ask something different of our hero.

I think it is in some ways analogous to the way that James Bond has remained a hard drinking, womanizing, imperialist dinosaur, but the character has somehow taken on some of the ambiance of the modern world.

We'll see how it turns out, eh?

I'm being brutally honest. Singer already tried to revive Superman of the 80s into the 00s, and it didn't work. The audience doesn't want a 'perfect' or classic boyscout. Clark needs to be more relatable to the casual fans. Now that doesn't mean Goyer, Snyder and Nolan used Bruce Wayne as a template for Clark Kent but feeling anger and sorrow are crucial emotions for the character. It makes him appear vulnerable.

The comments regarding how Clark will be 'darker' in this film should be taken more lightly than fans are anticipating.

thats just it, though... Singer's Superman wasnt the 80's Superman... he was a brooding emo, a peeping tom, and a depressed angst-ridden individual. the only time we have ever seen Superman as a beacon of hope for Metropolis in a successful movie was in Superman The Movie

Chris Nolan said (in like 2010) he hasn't been written to be dark, that they have remained true to the fundamentals of Superman being a beacon of hope. He's just not going to be anachronistic any more.

Singer's Superman was basically a love note to Donnor's interpretation. It carried an 80s vibe mixed with modern context, and it didn't float, in my opinion. The imagery didn't help either.

The core values of Superman shouldn't really be perceived as anachronistic, as long as they are considered to be aspirations rather than expectations. I wouldn't say that "truth, justice and the American way" is in any way more out of date than any other value structure, like Buddhism or socialism.

Yeah, I think something is off on the compositing. The edges are a tad too sharp. Cool suit, though.

Who says Clark's core values are outdated?
