I wanted to start a thread about what you like most, but too much to fill out the poll options.

Personally, I love the cape attachment.

If I could pick just one thing to change from the first picture I would choose the lack of trunks. Since the trunk area was covered by shadow I still have hope Snyder decides to include them on the costume. It's worked for 70 years and it still works today. Just take a quick look at the polls on other websites and you will see what Im talking about.

Threads like this bug me the most.

I hope this picture ruined the movie for all of you annoying trolls b**ching about minor details. I hope you'll be sitting at home crying your eyes out while this film rakes in millions.

So everyone that doesn't like EVERYTHING about the costume is a troll?

Please. . . .

I'm with you on this one. I guess this is probably the only place they can vent their frustration.

Ooooooh somebody pulled out the eyeroll on me! So badass!

No, I didn't say that people who don't like everything about the costume are trolls. But I do think starting an entire thread devoted to it is trollish. We already have a Cavill thread, a costume thread and an "all things Superman" thread where the good and the bad are frequently debated. Starting a thread every time you notice something you don't like--or in this case, starting a thread just to stir up controvery and try and convince people whose attitudes are positive that the entire thing is a failure--is really annoying.

I always laugh when I see people on this site complain about the show The Big Bang Theory because they feel it paints superhero nerds as a bunch of uptight dorks that stress out over silly things pertaining to their favorite comic book characters. But stupid threads like this just prove that the stereotypes are accurate.

One STILL photo.

I just want people to realize what they are discussing.

He looks like Superman. The suit is modern. The hair? Ok, not perfect in a single shot. However there is a lot of future media in motion, that will determine his overall look. I think it's going to be fantastic. We are sooooo lucky to get another film after the debacle of Superman Returns. Let's not forget that.

Glad to know I'm not alone in this.

The thing is, even if I absolutely HATED the new costume, I wouldn't let it ruin my hopes for this movie. I mean, Superman's look is important, but it's his character that matters the most. If they get that right, and the rest of the movie is good, that's what matters the most.

I think people already accept the new costume, what will be great is when more media comes out and they realize they are actually blown away by it. Different lighting where we can see the true details will be amazing!

His natural hair has always looked better than what we saw in the first released pic. I really think it's blown out of proportion and he will look just fine. At a later point people will think "they fixed it because of complaints" but really it probably just looked bad in that pic.

gdw, I'm suprised by the lack of reaction to the S, as well. Thought the thing has grown on me. I'm also suprised no one has really reacted to the wrist guards. Hate those.

Well that might be because most realise that it's forshortened in that picture, so until we see it full on from the front we can be certain if it is a bad as a few people think. It might actually look really great. I'll reserve judgement until I see it in more detail. It certainly can't look as bad as the wonky \S/ Dean Cain had in later episodes of L & C.

Don't post anything on these boards about something you don't like or the gushers will attack you for it!

This thread asked for our criticisms, it opened the can, so I am here. Anyone who doesn't like the negative opinions should of avoided this thread when they read the title. It seams you came here just to criticize and shoot down other people opinions. Maybe a mod should re title this thread, "What do you like least about the new Superman pic? Those that want to shoot down those opinions!"

Here's the things I don't like

The hair, no spit curl, combed back like a mafioso.
The lack of trunks.
The texture of the suit looks reptilian.
The \S/ symbol, I prefer the Jim Lee one or the one used in Superman the Movie.

Yeah, I am with this guy. Members like Rowsdower, El Payaso and Zachhelms are "sick of people complaining about..." and yet they come to a complaint thread. If you don't want to hear it than go away. Did you read the thread title and ask yourself, "Man, I wonder what they are talking about in here"?

I never said it would ruin the movie for me, however there are details of the suit I like less than others. Which is what this thread is about.

Always with the negative stuff.
How about a positive thread about the suit instead, like what actually works?
Be happy with what you got, folks. This thread aint going nowhere.
