Change the neckline, shade of red (should be brighter) and please, no two-toned red cape. . . .

I apologize for my ignorance but where's the difference? He still looks the same...... Regardless of his "costume", it's his actions that define him not his outfit. If you really need to change the costume, then remove the red speedos cause it's the freaking 21st century not the cross dressers venue. I mean no disrepect to Superman cause he actually is one of favorite Superheroes but if most of you are gonna nitpick about color here & there..... why not address the real main problem? Sit down & think about it before you attack me or give me any bull**** cause it's true. Don't give me an excuse that it has to be the same since the 1930s.

Meh, the only change I'd make is to brighten up the colors just a wee bit. Not too much. The buckle I can take or leave.

Royal Blue
Blood Red
Same shade of yellow
Loosen up the neckline

Actually, If I had my way, the Kingdom Come suit would be the new offical outfit, for the most part because I hate the color yellow and I think it looks more modern. But I know that would piss off alot of people so scratch that comment.

I liked the suit in Returns alot, but a few changes would be ok with me. Make the red a bit brighter.

the suit definitely needs tweaking:

-- wider neckline
-- slightly larger shield
-- slightly larger briefs
-- tad brighter shade of red
-- dye Routh's hair jet black (not exactly part of the costume but contributes to the overall look).

yes. Change the damn suit to an updated materials of the classic one:








Take out the damn muscle suit and let him get as big as Reeve did at the end of filming for STM



And part the hair to the right for Superman and left for Clark, like it is supposed to be and has been in canon even before the donner films.

I would definetly eant the suit to change a bit. Make it more what reeve had and the Superman we know in the comics. Get Routh to bulk up again and fix the suit up. Even the i liked the one in SR.

It seams that everyone knows what the suit is supposed to look like except Bryan Singer.

My opinion:

Routh has a more Kryptonian suit, Reeve has/had a more Halloween suit!

So, Superman is an alien, who wears an Kryptonian suit and Reeve played Superman with a kind of Halloween suit! Look to those boots from Reeve! Those from Routh are much better!

But i must say: Back then in 1978 they had not the materials to make a suit like they did now!
