Personally, I never had a problem with the suit. However, If I were Singer, I would make the changes to appeal more to the fans.

Definitely change the neckline.
Make the S on his chest bigger and the yellow S on the cape.

I'm all for using Jim Lees designs as the concept design for the suit in MOS!

For the love of all things good, ditch those stupid trunks already. Those things really do look retarded on live-action actors. Someone else nailed it when they compared the trunks look to a "cross-dressers' convention." The trunks serve ZERO purpose other than a colour-breakup, but that can be achieved other ways that DON'T look asinine.

I disagree. That is how Supes normally pose. I wish they released that first instead of the original one that was first release. It wasn't a flattering pose. The one you post was much better.

Agreed, even though the cape looks funny, IMO.

I agree, the muted colors remind me of the 40's Superman color scheme, which I like. The neckline can change but I really prefer the smaller "S" shield; it bugs me when artists like Alex Ross draw it bigger than the character's chest.

You've gotta be kidding me. If that was the release pic, fans would've thought it was an ad for Superhero Movie.

Really, just the costume design alone is enough for WB to reboot the franchise minus Bryan Singer.

Darker colors, bigger emblem, no symobol on belt and more muscular. Routh looks puny, put fake muscles in the costume.

The most important thing for me is the size of the shield. after that, adding a yellow shield onto the cape, and after that changing the neckline.

Think about those face-averaging things producing pretty people. We need an average of the Superman costumes.

[quote=buggs0268;9760375]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


I say the top and bottom pics look perfect. I'm with you, brother. Superman's such an iconic character that doesn't need all this stupid tweeking. Leave well enough alone. He's timeless!

I thought the costume looked great in the movie but felt it didn't work so well in the promotional photography. I assume the suit was designed to work with modern filming techniques but perhaps they need to have an adjusted suit for still photographs. There's something about the red, yellow and blue that strikes a chord with people and these should be brought out for the marketing shots, in order to work best with this medium.

Look, costume changes in other super hero flicks don't bother me. Superman's costume however should always stay the same no matter the time period. It's just too classic to change.

I don't think they need to change the costume for the sequel.

For sequel to MOS, please add a proper golden yellow belt, and get rid of seams and piping on legs, back and the gauntlets. and make the Blue color of suit more bright, and make the cape a little short.
