All I can see is either

1) Smartasses who have no respect for superheroes in general and Superman in particular make fun of them (thus inducing your shame)
or
2) You think the costume would look better without them, in which case you have bad taste in costume design.

By the wa , the "you" in these statements is NOT you personally, it is anyone who wants the trunks gone..

I want to make this clear that this is NOTHING personal.
What do you mean by "Superman is SUPPOSED to be old-fashioned"?

I take comfort in knowing the technology will be available some day to turn his 'trunks' area red while watching the blu-ray.

The TDK batsuit is just bad. Not "nipples on the suit" bad, but bad nonetheless. The new superman suit looks good.

They call him the man of tomorrow. Not the man of yesterday. Superman has to change with the times, or become a relic of a different era.

I'm sure we will see the spit curl in the film. It'll be interesting to see if Snyder decides to add the red trunks or not. I would think he would have plenty of time to make that decision since this sucker is just barely going to start principle shooting. To me though, it doesn't matter either way.

This suit is 10x better than that atrocious SR suit IMO and that's good enough for me.

I love the new look! I was scared that the Superman outfit would suffer the same fate as the Batsuit. As for the trunks, I could care less because it's not like I'm going to stare at his crotch throughout the film.

I seriously thought they would redesign the emblem, change the colors, give the suit a dumb design but thank goodness he has the traditional Supes look. I can't wait for the film.

Well I think it looks okay in that pic because the trunks area is in the shade. I'm skeptical about how it will look in a straight shot.

Judging by the shape of the cape's folds and how flat the area on the back of it looks I would go ahead and guess that we might have a pretty good chance of a cape shield.

Count me among the haters of the TDK batsuit. Absolutely horrid, which, considering how great the actual movies are themselves, makes it stand out even more. I just don't get how Nolan get everything else so right, but this SO WRONG.

Interesting way to put it, and I agree. To wit, I feel like Superman has become: "the man of what we thought tomorrow looked like several decades ago".

I think the TDK is alright. To me, Idc if the suit is bad in the nolan films because the story is that matter to me.

I'd brace yourself, because all of the on set pics and video have shown the TDK suit. And I'd think if there was to be a new suit we'd have heard by now. I'm trying to remember when we first heard there'd be a new one for TDK...

Yeah we knew early on because that was one of the first pics they released for the film (his new suit).

So I'm not expecting it, but I will pray to any god that can deliver one.

Look at this from the angle that your favorite character is being criticized by fans of the currently more successful and well liked characters and maybe you'll understand the backlash.

I get where people are coming from on TDK suit.
I don't really like it so much as I accept it. Personally, I'd prefer a blend of the Arkham Asylum suit mixed with the Jim Lee Redesign well over TDK suit.
Still....if we're going to accept as a given that he's got to be in Black Armor....I'll take the suit that gives him more freedom of movement and the ability to turn his head over the aesthetics of the other Batsuits anyday, especially considering how much he sticks to the shadows.

Seriously, give it a rest. Constantly complaining about and antagonizing the people who are unhappy causes a far greater ****storm than if you just let them say their piece.

That's not to say civil disagreements can't be had, of course. Debate is great, but "OMG HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE IT, YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY WRONG, YOU'RE JUST A FANBOY BEING A FANBOY, TOTAL NONSENSE" is not a debate.
I agree with this, but on the other side its not fair when people that don't mind "not having trunks" or so forth are not true fans of Superman, and don't understand the character. Both sides its irritating. Civil debate is great, but either side claiming some type of superiority is not.

I love the costume, and can't wait to see it in a daytime shot to see more of the color. I can't wait to see that cape while flying!

Sorry, I meant that as a guess. It'd be kinda weird if it touched the ground. Maybe it comes close to an inch of doing so?
