    If the film is visually amazing, it can't blow. That's a paradox for me personally.

    Nope.

    So you thought Transformers: Dark of the Moon didn't blow?

    QFT. That image is quintessential in my book.

    And by the way, just thought I'd toss this out there for reaction/discussion:

    I'm sorry but who wears underwear on the outside like that?! Of course it looks ridiculous.

    The only reason Superman pulled it off, is because well, he's kind of a bad-ass. :woot:

    Apparently sportsmen from the 30's... like that guy. I don't think it looks ridiculous in the right context. I think the idea was just to add another layer over tights for "modesty" purposes. Takes balls to step into the ring wearing that getup if you ask me.

    That is a fantastic article :up: Comic heroes really are in a sense time capsules of ideas.

    When a man can turn a mountain into a parking lot with his fists, you let him wear whatever the hell he wants.

    I Agree! It's freaking amazing. I was going through all the set pics (again!) after a LOOONG period of no news one day. I had an "AW MAAN" moment when I noticed it. What tipped me off was the cape, then his head looked like another picture, and then it was how the lighting was exactly the same as another, so on and so forth. lol Best I've ever seen.

    ^that maniped picture, for me at least, shows that the trunks weren't really necessary to begin with. I'm glad that they decided to rip the bandaid off and remove them. If they want to reach a bigger audience they have to show they are doing a few things different. Even if the movie will pretty much be something we have seen.

    I think, had wearing trunks been part of everyday lifestyle at some point in our history than I could see the reason for keeping it. But they never were.

    Apparently Clark got a buzz-cut in Flyby?

    Great find.
