    might makes sense though, on Krypton everyone apparently has some variation of the Superman suit on, while when they go into battle they wear armor.

    On Earth there is no real need for armor since our sun gives them god like powers, Zod decides to tip the scales in his favor and creates his robot army based armor, giving him a push (not really sure why but lets go with it lol). So just to make sure he doesn't get his arse handed to him, Superman hits his belt buckle thingy and his fathers armor does a nano tech assemble thing and ta da, armored Superman vs. armored Zod :funny:

    I kinda hope the belt buckle thing actually serves as that purpose.....other wise I do think its kind of odd to just.....be there.....floating on his mid-section......the toy will look awesome :funny: back on topic :D

    He could be right, you never know, the jury still out on that.Read what the costume designer said.

    the Superman costume is not an outfit sewn together by Martha Kent, but is instead a bit of native Kryptonian fashion. “Everyone on Krypton wears this suit,” Wilkinson said of the costume. “It has function and purpose and a logic to this fantastical world," he added.

    But cheap...I wonder what it looks like. I wonder if it's similar to the poster that cklove posted, and that's why WB came down on him...possible

    lol, yeah kinda figured there are going to be ppl who wouldn't like that idea :p


    Yep and in the same spoilers that revealed the Kryptonian rifle and multiple armor sets, they also kinda gave away something about how Superman gets his suit........think DC The New 52........yep......:doh: lol

    If you guys recall, as soon as we got the first spy pics from the set I said that I would be willing to bet that the suit comes out of the buckle and forms around him...I still think that could be a possibility

    .....you talking to me??? If so then..........
    the suit will be nano tech, thats how it will be able to fit him, and that is how he will be able to hide it under his work clothes and such

    There were spoilers that revealed this, yes at this point its up in the air on if there true or not, but like I said, the same one that reported about the nano tech reported about the Kryptonian Rifles and Jor-El wearing armor and more which have been revealed to be true.

    I was, and thank you. I remember that guy but had forgotten that detail. I think it could work depending on how they handle it. It's hard to fathom, given the naturalistic feel of the trailer, how all of these fantastical elements are going to blend together. I can't wait to see it

    So how does that work exactly according to that example? He wears only the top of the suit underneath, and the rest will form at will?
    Or he wears a Superman t-shirt?

    It forms from the shield. In one of the recent Action Comics issues you see the suit materialize from the shield and then when he arrives home the suit de-materilizes back into the shield and he removes that from his chest.

    Also some merch update: Amazon is now listing the 2014 wall calendars for MOS with a release of August 1st.

    I like the sound of it forming from his belt buckle totally works for me.

    Yeah, but in that drawing the top was already there, and the rest materialized afterwards.

    So, he might wear the shield directly on the chest underneath? Or the beltbuckle? They're lodged into the skin somehow?
    It's not really clear. I hope it wont be as halfassed in the movie.

    He just wears the shield on the chest but how its depicted depends on the artist. Here's the issue in question I was talking about...
    [​IMG]

    ..in the following panels he flies home to his place where the suit de-materializes into the shield and then he just peels the shield off to jump in the shower. lol

    Not sure how it stays on his chest and whatnot but thats how it works in the comics.

    Looks like the hybrid between an "F" and an "H", probably a Medieval "H", of Hu-Ul:
