    I think putting Superman in black is usually because someone is an edgy tryhard (Jon Peters) and undermines his character.

    I mostly prefer the blue as well. I think the black is cool for alternate experiences like the MOS dream sequence though. I wouldn't want it as his default suit.

    I think it's fine for dream sequences and villainous counterparts. But Superman who just wears black on his bodysuit annoys me, like if the Flash wore black, Aquaman in purple etc.

    Fair enough. He is called Big Blue, after all.

    I wish more people would think like Marvel and give there heroes multiple looks throughout the film. They just need to make the finale outfit look the offical look. In CA:TWS Captain America gets to wear his agent Rogers outfit while working with shield and his original when he leaves. On top of that is all worked into the story.

    Unless there is a pragmatic reason, I do not see a reason to change the suit. I really like the Man of Steel suit. But, if they have to modify it for a good in-text reason, I would advise against selecting black. Superman does not keep to the shadows, nor inspire fear. The blue summons images of life and fertility, while the dark shade favored by Batman draws associations to death, fear, and vengeance, none of which link favorably with Superman.

    If they decide to adapt the death of superman I want to see the black suit. I don't want him to wear it for 100% of the movie. Just when it makes since from within the story.

    :whatever: *SIGH* Marvel is not the end all, be all of CBMs. If I want to see Marvel style movies, I'll go watch a Marvel movie. I'm not here for other studios trying to ape them. Let's keep some variety, please.

    Yeeeaahhh....cool, but no thanks. Looks like something he'd wear to fight Mr Freeze in Batman & Robin.

    You don't have to like marvel movies to appreciate some of the creative decisions.

    Looks like the Cage suit to me. Why have auditions with the actual suit (even if you've already finalized the design), when you have old ones hanging around?

    I remember when Dean Cain wore his black suit when New Krypton came for him.

    It's definitely not the Cage suit, the \S/ and neckline are way off:

    It's definitely a design from the early 00's era as it seems to have the logo that was being used from the original BVS to SR.

    Final Flyby design:

    There's a few differences, but Henry might not be wearing the final suit, or a suit from the original Flyby or the original Batman Vs Superman.

    Well, I just assumed that it would save money to just use one of the old suits they have around at least for the auditions much like actors wearing one of the Kilmer suits for BB or them using a Reeve suit for MOS. I don't think I've heard what was done for SR. But, I can see how similar they are anyway in terms of taking some design ideas.

    Yep. But, it seems WB isn't let the designs to completely go to waist since some of those ideas are seen in the SR and MOS suits. Even seeing the black MOS suit made me think of the opening of the JLM script. Though, that may have just been a coincidence.

    You know, it'd probably he a horrible Superman movie, but I still would be curious to see where Tim Burton was going with that.

    There are versions of those black and white pics in color, but I'm not sure if it's just something people manipped.
