I really think that costume may be an indicator of things to come.
Consequently, I think the gargoyle's reaction is also an indicator of the aftermath to come.

I actually like the suit, just not with Cage in it.

Burton would have destroyed superman

Ex. Willy wonka - planets of the apes - Alice in wonderland

Last Burton film I honestly liked was sleepy hollow, all his new stuff sucks. Why does he insist on shoving Helena bonam Carter down our throats

I think my disappointment started with planet/apes. I went with my dad to see it at the famous ziegfeld theater thinking it was going to be great

not really news, but this gave me a little chuckle. Zack Snyder (not) talking about the costume...

http://splashpage.mtv.com/2011/03/23...erman-costume/






Disclaimer: DO NOT take Zack Snyder literally when he says "No, it's not on that scale at all." he doesn't mean Superman won't look like Superman, he just means the look they're going for doesn't resemble either of the looks they're showing him.

I feel safe in the fact that this is a pretty heavy fan base and dc and wb want to make and not lose money so if he comes up with some retardo costume a'la tim burtons superman robot armor costume we see in production ( which was going to be painted a dark iridescent partly clear navy blue) that just won't happen there's way to much riding on this

If this fails and I hope it doesn't I really am wishing the best for it, BUT if it does it will cripple the supes movie franchise for a while and tarnish the name in general for a while

It would take years to shake the fail of it all, but I do hope that it is wicked

Just happen to find this picture online, but it's one of my favorite pics of Superman. If they can make some subtle changes to modernize in a bit it would be perfect IMO.

If the new costume has the "S" on the back of the cape, I would like it to have a red background (like an inverse of the "S" on his chest), to provide contrast and definition without the outlines. Any thoughts?

If the fanbase was so heavy, Superman Returns would have had at least a 100m+ OW and made at least 500 worldwide; we would probably be discussing a potential second Singer and Routh sequel by this time.
The Superman movie franchise is crippled, that's why they brought in the big guns to reboot the sucker.
I can't imagine that they are interested in pleasing a small fan base.
They need to go with a different costume to capitalize on the financial potential of the reboot.
Sure, five thousand fan boys will be pissed off but the average movie goer won't care.
It is interesting how in the video linked above, Snyder will not confirm the traditional Superman suit and neither has Cavill, who also refused to discuss it during an interview.
People, if they did intend to use the traditional costume, then this would be a non-question, but Snyder and Cavill are not treating it like that and that in and of itself, speaks volumes.
We will know soon enough.
But to think that when Snyder and Cavill refuse to say "yes, it's the traditional costume" and insinuate that it is being modernized, it is a little naive to interpret that modernization as a mere updating of the costume fabrics and choice of color dyes.
Maybe not exactly the Nic Cage costume, which is growing on me, but not far from it.

It works best just completely yellow, IMO.

I'm not saying they are not going to change the suit and keep it traditional

What I am saying is that it's not going to be as radical as what Burton wanted to do. I dont expect a clone of the Chris reeves suit but I also don't expect a leather supersuit or the blue being changed to black or it to be armored looking

I have to say that I am not entirely opposed to the idea itself of the costume being redesigned. If we are going to overhaul it from the ground-up, let's make it fit its origin in the film. If it's from Krypton, make it look more alien or at least unusual, maybe with gold instead of yellow and with alien symbols in some places, for example.

What do you mean? I am just talking about the Superman suit, not necessarily overhauling the entire character.
