Other than that, I dig it.
My thoughts exactly.

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.
I understand the complaining of actual suit, but from the picture, it looks like Superman is being thrown into a vault door. His hair isn't going to stay perfect in a fight scene or high action scene.

I mean, seriously. It's hair. And people are complaining about his eyebrows. Y'all are looking for the smallest things to complain about. It's lame.

I love the shield, unless your only gripe is you'd rather no texture at all on it. I think smaller or no texture on the shield could be an improvement. If not I'm still fine with it, something different.

OK... I spent a lot of posts getting people to stop using the non existant word 'CASTED'. Now I've got a new mission: Getting everyone to stop using 'COULD OF' and 'SHOULD OF' when they actually mean either 'COULD'VE (or COULD HAVE)' and 'SHOULD'VE (or SHOULD HAVE).

As to the shield... I'm not a big fan of the Earth 2 golden age emblem but at least it is actually from the comix. I'm waiting for a more complete picture of the costume. I'm pretty sure there are no trunks so I consider that a battle lost already. I also don't like the raised emblem. It looks glued on and bugs me ... but another battle lost. Oh well.

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.
Starting a thread like this to talk SPECIFICALLY about the things fans don't like about the costume, so no, it's not "trollish". I haven't read a single message in which people "try and convince people with positive attitudes" that everything is a failure. That's just a generalization.

Big Bang Theory has got nothing to do with Superman.

If you find this thread "stupid" how come you care so much about it? People with different opinions "prove that steorotypes are accurate." Give me a ****ing break. . . . .

The sad thing is-and I say this as a critic of the movie costume's lack of trunks-but if there were to be a thread for what people like most about the new pic, there would be a fraction of the posts. The internet is so negative, it's a downer...even though I'm quite guilty of it myself....

I'm guessing it would cost $100,000 + to stage that shot with the set construction, makeup, hair, pyrotechnicians, lighting, photographer, studio rental etc, which in the big scheme of things is chump change. You are probably right that it likely isn't an actual scene from the movie, but a very well staged and elaborate photo shoot.

I wonder it the texture is supposed to be some kind of solar cell pattern that helps Superman draw even more power from the sun?

I seriously doubt they'll go through the trouble of explaining that.

His eyebrows are likely just being washed out by the Pyro gerbs and the shadowy lighting. Kind of surprising that someone at WB's didn't have that fixed in photoshop.

It's not that it would waste time; it would just be totally unnecessary.

Not if that was the actual reasoning behind the texture it wouldn't. Remember, Nolan who is the producer of MOS likes to keep stuff wherever possible grounded somewhat in reality.

Definitely the suit's material. I've always pictured the suit as cloth and from the looks of it, Kal-El's parents bought the cheap **** for baby blankets.

An explanation for the scaly look. I talked in another thread how the costume underneath could be of Kryptonian tech, expanding an almost synthetic skin type effect. As he is "operating" it, the suit appears to grow into form on his body. This type of texture would work out well for that type of effect. I still like the idea of one shirt rip scene showing the suit form on his chest as the \S/ emblem expands. Perhaps it all expands from the belt or something. That might be a little to sci fi for them to try, but I would dig it anyways.

Anyone who thinks this is a screenshot from the movie is horribly kidding themselves. For one, he is looking straight at the camera... yeah, actors don't tend to do that in movies. This is obviously a staged photoshoot, it was intended to show off Cavill as Superman, not showcase a scene from the movie.

Taking this into account, they have control of every detail single in the photo. So they should have definitely chosen a different hairstyle in my opinion. Saying "He was just thrown into a door" a ridiculous claim. No he wasn't Cavill just stood there and posed.

The rest is crap for me; The red is flatty-flat. The hairs makes me think of Grease John Travolta, and above all the so called "blue" color makes me cry. When I see pics of H.Cavill on google, the picture that does not reflect superman is indeed this one.
If there is no trunks it will definitively be a fail IMO.
Neverthless, the pic is very dynamic and I like the gesture, the position and all. Good picture, crappy suit.
