Poor Krypton, all that Science! and they never discovered how to make spandex. Wonder what all their fat people wear to Wal-Mart?

I was thinking about that as a possibility.

I still feel they could've done something different to help replace the lose of the trunks.

How would you guys have felt if they went with how the "trunks" were handled on the left?

So does anyone think the suit has to augment his powers in some way? Seems a little awkward if he were to just put it on for the sake of curiosity after finding it in the Fortress of Solitude.

I hope not...whatever functionality it has in this version, it should remain pretty minor compared to its symbolic value, IMO.

I just assume he puts it on after finding out his background and accepting it.

I'd like it if
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
the scout/explorer ship / fortress that is guessed at, was piloted by an 'El' ancestor (which would tie into Jor El knowing what would happen to Clark coming to Earth and that he has a system he could use with the S-key to transmit information to Kal El with... The fact that it is a suit worn by 'the house of El' should then be enough for someone like Kal El to decide to honour his blood family by wearing it when Supermanning

Terrible. It looks like a depiction of groin strain in an advert for anti inflammatory pills.

Definitely, those waist patterns pretty much exclude having a pair of briefs there...as was their intention. But even taking them away, briefs as an element still always work for me.


I'm wearing them right now.

No thanks to both....just put actual trunks on him or none at all. None of these cutesy little ways to put red on his crotch without actually putting trunks on him

I assume that along with honoring his Kryptonian family heritage, he would also wear it for a more practical reason. That is, no clothing of Earthly origin is durable enough for when he goes into action to do "Superman stuff." I think they'll play on that in the movie, since we see how during the oil rig rescue his clothing is burned off and ripped to shreds.

Great job Super Kal! That looks pretty sweet. Reminds me of Eradicator a little. Love the red sides.

I really like the new still, but I have to admit I wish the colours, particularly the blue, were a bit more saturated like the EW pictures/cover, as well as the Total Film and Empire covers. I've been a muted blue fan since the beginning, but the new still is a little too dull for my taste.
