One thing I've learned about complainers they don't need help. They get there just fine on their own.

Seriously speaking, I get what you're saying.

I'm not complaining about the tone of the movie, just that these idiots feel the need to darken everything and drain the color out of everything. If it doesn't reflect the visual style of the movie, why do it? Do they hate color that much?

I'm still hoping that we get a large scale "battlefield" type of scene, either on Krypton or on Earth, in MOS since I do think that there are places that it could happen. I've been waiting to see some type of large scale "war-like" film within a superhero film done properly since I haven't seen one imho so far.

I actually like the greyish blue look. From the trailers it fits into that world just fine. And it does brighten up in some shots. From the tone of the film I don't think you can go too light for the blue. Most important part is that it looks great it the trailers.

Yeah I'm still rubbing my head on what kind of color tone they'll go for the final product since the color tones used for the first and second theatrical trailer are different. The first one drained out so much of the color that I could turn on the saturation to the highest and it would only then look "normal" while I didn't have to do nearly as much for the second trailer.

Hell I wish that they'd take one page out of Michael Bay's Transformers films (especially since the DP for MOS also filmed Transformer 3) when it comes to the strong colors that they used for their film.

In these calendar pics, it's grayish gray.

meh. hyperbolic hyperbole is hyperbolic.

It's greyish-blue, or blueish-grey, but certainly not greyish-grey. It looks metallic to me, and I assume that's the goal.

I'm going by the trailers which looks quite balanced with the look of the film. To brighten the suit they would have to brighten the rest of the film.

I'm not saying the suit is gray, just these godforsaken calendar pics of it.

It's only a calendar. Let's just look forward to the positive points of the film.

I think the drained out colour tones are this films version of JJ abrams lens flare. That sort of method of grounding whatever craziness is on screen. Some people won't like it, but whatever...it's useless to look at that and go "wait that's not what superman is supposed to be" as far as i know, superman is far more than bright colours.

Whoever edited the calendars certainly made the suit look greyer than in other official pictures. I'm curious to see what the final product will look like in the film. Judging by the trailers, I think the suit will look blue enough.

It sort of reminds me of the Smallville episode in which Clark is transported to a parallel Earth where Superman was raised by Lionel Luthor. It was a much bleaker and very desaturated looking version of the mainstream Smallville universe.

I thought that was a great episode.

Indeed. As flawed as Smallville was in certain aspects, the show had some great moments.

Oh definitely, I'm a big fan of the show. I think it gets a lot of flack that it doesn't really deserve. Its hard to make interesting TV especially when everyone already knows what the end goal is. And people who say it lasted too long are right but they need to realise TV isn't just there to entertain it also brings money to the networks etc and the show remained popular throughout that's why it lasted so long.

I'm glad it lasted as long as it did. I imagine that some people felt it look too many liberties from the original source material, but, when you think about it, most comic-to-film adaptations do that to some extent. From the start, I kind of accepted that Smallville was a different take on Superman -- kind of like an Elseworlds story. The only problems I really had with the show were the tiresome "meteor freak of the week" episodes in the early seasons and the finales that sometimes failed to deliver.

My problem with Smallville was pretty much the network it's on. The WB/CW has it's own style of show with nerdy white rock, people who look too good for the setting and ending each episode with some romantic faux-deep moment. It was just tiresome.

I still think series 2, 3 and 5 were damn near perfect superhero television though. The rest i'd easily drop like a bad habit.

Just back from seeing Star Trek Into Darkness and that is the movie for Man of Steel to beat this Summer it seems. It betters Iron Man 3 I think, especially in terms of scale.

STID into darkness made a big point about 'playing god' and changing the destiny of another entire civilization by interfering with them. All I can say is I hope Jor-El has some good reasoning. Other than 'they won't be able to kill him there because he'll be a god'. It's a fairly hot potato.
