The Daily Planet - Superman News and Speculation Thread (🚨SPOILERS🚨)

I never understood the people who hated the trunks and their need to be so vocal about how much they hate them.

So that alone makes me so happy that we’re getting them. Also, I don’t like my Superman looking like he’s in a giant blue baby onesie, the trunks are a much needed contrast and for that reason, they’ll never go out of style
 
Random detail, but I do appreciate that he's not like, destroying the train as he stops it, like we normally see in similar images. You would think in most of these situations he'd be able to slow it down gradually. :funny:
I thought the same thing... but at the same time, given that this photo is likely to be a barely dicernable background detail, perhaps it's just that the artist didn't want to make things too complicated for himself... :whoops:
Same reason the cape also seems to have no movement despite the action! :nerd:

But more seriously, the imagery is very cool and (finally) looks like classic Superman action.

Why were these photos of photos taken by a potato

I have more questions about the collar situation

Don't you dare talk like this about Jimmy!

So, who does it better? Jimmy Olsen or Peter Parker?

I like how the belt is not a sleek modernized v-shaped thing. It's just a big broad belt.
Same!
And it also play well in the retro feel we're discovering with Metropolis sets. I'm thinking more and more that the costume reveal photo may not have given a glimpse of the real "patina" the film will have... which is good, because everything we're seeing now looks much better in my opinion.

I would be happy with either, as long as they look good on screen. Both have their benefits and shortcomings, depending on how you look at it.

A teaser trailer or our first look at the footage will tell more. It's tough to go by set images. Gunn will have his own lense and flare so to speak, but it's no secret we will be getting a classic rendition of Supes' world.
 
You know what, I'm gonna go back on something I said to you last time @Tra-El - I'm starting to think we will get some sort of footage at SDCC afterall. Nothing much, just a tease, and it might not even be released online...but I do expect something now. It's timed too closely with the end of filming for me to think Gunn won't want to put something out to celebrate.

My gut is almost certain we will be getting something. It just has that feel to it. Gunn is the type that has been around the genre long enough (he has lived in this world for quite some time) and understands the importance of the type of exposure the event captivates. I asked him on INSTA a few days ago if there will be a SDCC surprise:beaming: We shall see, but I would hate an enormous missed opportunity if not.
 
As much as I want to believe, I don't see Brainiac when I look at this. I don't know WHAT I see, but not Brainiac.

Everybody keeps saying "spaceship" and I'm just...not quite there. But even if it is, not Brainiac's spaceship.

All I heard was a early screening of the trailer. :o
 
Huh. You know, maybe that first suit reveal wasn't that bad after all...

Now maybe it looks better in motion or completed, but...not feeling those looks at the suit!

It kind of looks like it could be something made by LuthorCorp. The color and sleek, industrial design language is similar to the LuthorCorp logo and the humvees we’ve seen. Maybe Lex is deploying Metallo-like robots to compete with Superman during rescue operations? That storyline’s been done before in comics and cartoons.

Yeah I'd lean more toward LuthorCorp tech than Brainiac at this point.
 
Plus, it’s compatible with Luther’s characterization as a “genius” in the newspaper we’ve just recently seen, and it fits the current tech zeitgeist w/figures like Musk going after advanced robotics.
