What is your current position on the "Superman Returns" suit?

  1. Hated it then, hate it now

  2. Liked it then, like it even more now

  3. Hated it at first, but it's starting to grow on me

  4. Hated it at first, but now I love it!

  5. Liked it at first, but the novelty wore off.

    And I still think you've been had. We've seen one pic w/bright colors & 30 w/the dark tones. The interviews I've read describe exactly what we see in the first pic. One defense I keep coming across is that it's an homage to the Superman look of the '40s, which is nice except for one thing: THIS AIN'T THE FORTIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would you want to see Batman's original look on the big screen? Or Spider-Man's, w/the tiny eyes & fat spider emblem? I think not. Update & improve. Retro's for the nightclubs.

    Singer said the Red was Crimson. Crimson is the color of the Official Glossy pic.

    The shield could be a bit bigger...and the cape attachment does look weird, but I'll get used to it.

    IMO the reason the \s/ looks to small is because of the angle the pic was taken. they shot it from a low vantage point to give the impression of Routh being tall and impressive in stature. Doing this with the "manties" makes his torso seem very long causing the \s/ to look small.
    I think the studio would be wise to release some more pics from different angles so we can get a better idea of how the suit looks.
    At first I HATED the suit, now its meh, I can live with it.
    Like i said this is just my oppinion on it.

    I don't think so. I think the shield looks small b/c it is small.
    And perhaps a second pic is needed, if only to clarify the color scheme & quell some of the defenses.
    BTW-this is what I think of when I hear "crimson"; not this.

    We definitely need another picture (even two more) of Superman in costume. Something from head on, even in flight would be nice (which will probably never happen).

    Why do you think that? It's almost mandatory.

    I'm waiting for a new pic to be released

    I'm certain that there was a development problem of some kind with the original pic.

    anyone notice how yellow Routh's skin looked? He looked like Data from Star Trek

    Okay-it's out. And clearly, the colors we saw all those months ago are indeed the suit's real colors. Now whatcha got to say?

    I think that the sheild looks small because he's wearing hip huggers. If the belt were higher it would look more like the superman we know.

    Or maybe it's just small. That makes no sense. There's like 18 inches between the shield & the belt. How could one possibly affect the other?

    Yup, doesn't mean that's what it will look like on screen though.

    Better, but I'd still like a bigger shield & I'm still not feelin' the boots.
    For the record, I liked the idea of the raised shield. I thought they should've done that years ago. But those colors still don't sit right with me. This is not Superman's red. It's more like Daredevil's red. The shade of blue they picked is a bad contrast to it, the boots are horrible & while I applaud the effort to jazz up the belt, it just looks wrong. As wrong as when somebody puts a bat on Batman's belt. :supes:

    Anybody think that the suit we've seen is the one he'll be using to go to New Krypton?
