or at least a pic of the shield that will be used

I kind of think that with the bad reviews that GL is getting, that if it doesn't do particularly well at the box office WB/DC might want to play it safe with MOS where they can to appeal to as many people as possible. Part of that 'playing it safe' might be going full Classic with the costume so as not to piss of the majority of fans. Fans that want the classic costume faithfully recreated up on the screen, outnumber the proponents of radical changes to the costume (eg. ditching the trunks) by I would estimate more than 4 to 1. It's likely much higher. but I'll go with that figure.

The new DC costume is totally unproven, so I'm still not convinced Nolan/Snyder and WB are going to risk alienating a huge block of the fans by going againt 65+ years of tradition. They need to get as many butts in seats as possible that opening weekend. A crappy looking Superman imo = Less butts in seats,and less repeated viewings. The publics first exposure to the costume reveal had better be a HOLY S*** THAT'S AMAZING! Moment, or this movie is going to swimming against the tide of diminished expectations and indifference.

Agreed...I mean if anything, one could say that the initial reaction of when the SR suit was first revealed was a precursor towards how the film itself would later be received.

Granted, I'm not saying that the suit makes up for the quality of the film, but first impressions are severely important imho.

I dont really agree with this, as much as we think the costume is important most people probably don't care all that much. The story has to be good, bottom line, people aren't going to hate a movie based on a costume. Given it does no favors when it gets bad press but batman does fine. I don't think many people sat through superman returns and said, "the symbols to small and the red isn't bright enough". Your right that the first impression has to be positive but the fans don't nearly make up that much of the total income of the movie. I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to remove the trunks that people would be more interested because they feel like they can take the character seriously. At the end of the day I'm curious to see what costume they go with.

I bet they did...plenty of people hated that costume so much they let it ruin the film for them instead of letting the weak story ruin the film...the look of a character is VERY important

When I think of plenty of people I like to not think about complaints on a message board for comic book movies. Personally from the people I heard from who aren't comic book fans it was the story with the kid and the lack of action that dragged the movie down.

A true superhero striptease.

EDIT: I would hate that. Just reveal the whole damn thing now, as Snyder said would happen.

I'm sure but I swear from reading posts on here you'd think that suit had killed somebody

No doubt about that, lol. For me the suit stayed true and was poorly executed but in some shots it looked phenomenal. Throughout the movie though, for me at least, I just stopped paying attention to how it looked in every scene.
