    What if his suit weighs like a million tonnes and only he can lift it up because it's Alien, I think that would be awesome.

    Like Maybe in the SHip Jonathon found him in the suit is in there folded up all Alien like, and because J.Kent couldn't even lift it up he didn't know what it was, but upon showing Clark when he's revealing he's actually an orphan that Clark just gently strumms his fingers across it but lifts a bit of the fabric up and J.Kent has a "wtf" expression both examining it, I think that would be sweet!

    The Kryptonians could have a different mass/weight on their planet.

    Yea this is what I mean. For any Kryptonian it would be ok because it's Alien Metal, but for Humans the Metal outweighs everything so that's why it would be hard for J.Kent to lift it up.

    If there's anything that's really worrying me about the suit right now, it's how dull the yellow in the emblem looks.

    Your kidding, right? If its like that, and since silver is on the suit, I see it as or close to gold.

    I agree.

    It almost looks white and it doesn't help that, due to the shape of the "S", that the red portions out weigh the yellow/gold portions.

    EDIT:

    Now in pics like this it looks okay but in all the official pics, it seems so washed out.

    There's no silver on the suit. A lot of people think the piping is silver, but it's really blue. It's just shiny...

    Yeah, I don't understand. In pictures taken with regular digital cameras, it looks just fine...but in ever official image we that has been released it BARELY looks yellow.

    The entire suit looks washed out - and the bracers look weird too. Would've looked cooler if red.

    Haven't you heard? A symbol on a flapping piece of cloth is like the hardest obstacle to overcome in hand drawn and computer animation. :whatever:

    Good riddance to the emblem on the cape. Never cared for it.

    I always loved the yellow S on the back of the cape. But if they are unable to pull it off and make it look real while his cape is fluttering in the wind, then I'm fine without it being present. The costume as it stands right now is growing on me more day by day. The colors do look slightly different from picture to picture, but overall, it looks fantastic and much more alien then ever before.

    It looks like the symbol is designed to look a certain way, almost a dark color in certain light, and for the yellow to pop more in certain lighting. That could be a really cool effect.

    It's not hard to pull it off. At all. It's a mystery why they nixed it on film.

    Maybe they feel its overkill or corny or something.

    I for one am glad to see it coming back in a few animations i.e. Batman: The Brave & the Bold & The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 but as I said I don't feel its needed on film.

    Yeah...the cape moving and folding shouldn't be a problem honestly. How many flags are there in the world and how many of them are single colored? I think that they opted to nix the shield from the back of the cape because of stylistic reasons, rather than practical ones.

    Yeah I think that too, who knows maybe it'l find its way back on film in the future.

    Also from what we've heard so far about Man of Steel I don't think the cape is gonna be part of the suit itself, I think its something he will attach. Maybe he's obsessed with capes when he's younger (like we see in the trailer where he's fashioning a made cape) and its something he adds to the costume.

    Really? I seem to remember it being stated somewhere when SR came out that it was difficult to do on screen and that's why Routh didn't have one on his cape. I could be remembering it wrong though. I guess that they could have the technology to do it now, seeing as how they make new advancements In CGI all the time. If they can do it, It would certainly be a welcome addition in my opinion, although it's not a " make or break" issue for me.

    You are remembering it right. I don't know why they said that because its false.

    I did this animation test years ago in an afternoon. Believe me it's possible

    Thanks for this! Proof positive that it's totally doable. Shame i won't get to see it on film in MOS but I'm happy with the costume we got though
