It's got a more classic, rounded serif at the bottom.

Not without the cape, no. Also maybe they just don't want to spend all their time complaining about it online.

Useless comment. I don't complain that much.

It's a great look if poking erections are your bag I guess.

I didn't want to say that, I was too afraid of harvesting the obvious comments.

I think I may grow to hate the body condom comments as much as the panties comments.

I think you all are just too self conscious with your own bodies to think his is sticking out to the point that it's all people can concentrate on.

Exactly. I don't see an issue with his groin, and I doubt most of the GP will, either.

The new suit looks just excellent!
I hope the yellow belt is reduced to a mere buckle (as that's all we've really seen.)
While I would have preferred the boots to have been blue as well (as in the McG suit), I'm fine with the inclusion of the red boots.
My favorite aspect of the suit is the darker tone it has.
I find it very funny that a couple of weeks ago, some people where coming up with all sorts of unusual explanations to make us believe that the trunks were still there.
Now, the same bizarro mental gymnastics are being used to try to explain that the colors are really much brighter than they look in the pictures!
ROFL!
C'mon people, get a grip!
Accept it!
The colors are dark!
They went with the darker colors because they wanted Superman to look convincing on screen. No other reason. No one will snicker at Henry Cavill's Superman, not even the most nihilistic X-men fan on your block.

I'll wait for the next official shot of the suit before declaring how I think the trunkless look appears.

The previous spy pics showed the suit as being much brighter. I don't know how you construe that as "bizarre mental gymnastics".

I have to say sometimes the comments people on the board come up with are just plain dumb to be honest and that is my opinion. If that is what you are complaining about and concentrating on while watching an action packed Superman movie with great actors then you are not a fan in my opinion and there is something wrong with a lot of people just saying.

I think the suit will end up looking fantastic once in we all see in action. Besides all the colors will change somewhat depending on the lenses they use etc. How can that not be common sense?

You are REALLY looking for common sense in a "Costume Thread?"

Hey Majik3817..

You said a few pages back that the boots "did NOT have a texture"

Example A:

Oops... well, it was a few pages back.

It is known. Unlike some things that people see or don't see in shadows and blurry pics... the texture is in the boots, the body suit and the \S/. Its hard to dabate that.

To be fair, I never seen that pic zoomed in at the boot. It was probably buried within all the crotch pics and underwear debates.

I think the shield might be more like this. The angle and way the shield bends over his chest may have distorted it in the promo pic.

I saw the texture with the naked eye... I just blew that up now... so you didn't miss it while looking at Superman's shady crotch

Well, I saw bumps, but I figured it for a subtle hint of graininess in the picture, but good eye.

Well, since you're the only one bringing them up all the time, it's seems clear that it's your bag more than anyone else's. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

That is amazingly well done! Though I kinda get the feeling that the edges are a little more rounded than you've depicted. It's the impression I get from the pics of the chairs, though that could just be the fabric of the chair rippling.
