I guess we'll have to agree to disagree then. The vast majority of the reaction seems to be quite positivem, and even if many people don't recognize the new suit, they appreciate the fresh change. And its a part of the story, so it's not pointless at all.

I guess. I'll try to reserve judgment until I see the film. I just feel like it's a misfire. I think the suit in TA was one of the best superhero costumes on film to date, but thanks to a comic book fans who are never pleased with anything, Marvel sh**canned it in favor of something new. All they maybe needed to do was tweak the mask a little bit so it fit his head better.

I wouldn't mind a slight blue adjustment. I really enjoyed the blue they way it was represented on Black Zero. I'd prefer if it was like that all the time.

However, I still love the suit.

Speaking of Black Zero. I think it would be cool if the all black suit made an appearance again somewhere down the line. I always loved the Reign of the Supermen suit so it would be cool to see it again in some way.

Good news for you then. It's coming back, better than ever. The all blue SHIELD suit is temporary.

I really dislike it when they change the costume in every sequel. I mean, sometimes it makes sense (Iron Man armours and Captain America changing in the Avengers), but for some characters, it makes almost no sense, why would Superman even need to alter his costume?

Are you sure about that? I thought this was just some concept art.

Yeah you know some changes needs to be done, I prefer little changes, because you know merchandising.

Yep, the suit was on display at Comic-Con and is even seen in the trailer. And concept posters released are usually good indicators of what is going to happen in the movie :P

It's not exactly the same as in The First Avenger but still very close.

Ah, okay. I saw it in the trailer, but I just assumed it was a flashback scene to WW2.

I would LOVE if the black suit returned. Possibly in a Death Of Superman-esque storyline.

The suit doesn't need to be changed (IMO, I think it's the best superhero costume). It's the lighting and filters that need to be changed.

I'd be fine with the suit staying as-is, but I'd like to see the kryptonian bits being toned back or removed all together in favor of something else similar.

Preferably the former.

I actually really liked the goldish white, kinda makes me think of this:

This. the suit was fine, they just kept messing with the colors on screen, in some scenes they just had overbearing lighting, but in others, like the smallville fight, it looked amazing.

I absolutely love the suit the way it is BUT I would love to see the red belt added to the suit. Obviously I don't want a real belt, he's 'effin Superman not Batman, but to me there is something iconic about the suit with the belt. For me it makes him more of a superhero than an alien - if that makes sense. The way the "S" on his chest is part of the suit and not sewed or added in any way I feel the belt could be done in the same manner (New 52). Other than that minor detail, nothing else should be touched.

My theory is because the suit would reflect the green screen and causing it to look pale (evident in the bts clips on the dvd). But in the Smallville sceens where he's walking down the street or when he's standing in fron of the soldiers for example, it looks beautiful and as intended.

But even trying to compensate for this we still got missmatch suits.

That plus the overall pallet of the movie.

The only change that I can think of is to remove the stripe or whatever it is from the side of the leg, really didn't like that and thought the pattern should've ended at the waist.

I think they shouldn't change a thing, the suit's perfect as it is and there's no logical(storywise) reason for it to change. And if they add the S on the cape make it gold not yellow.

Wouldn't the colour difference be enough to imply that anyways? (Hint: Jor-El's undersuit was also blue when he fought against Zod, so there's some link between the two fights on the audience's behalf).

As for Metropolis and Smallville, there's the fact that Superman fought against these people. If he was associated with them, he would never do what he did against Zod and Faora. So it's redundant for him to disown his heritage purely because of a group of sociopaths happened to share his heritage. Otherwise, humanity is a hypocrite.
