    Why does the suit look so damn dirty? It better not be like that in the actual movie.

    He does not look comfortable about it either, BTW.

    The suit is starting to grow on me. It does look alien in appearance. Without the trunks it does look more simplistic. I do like the cape.

    That was what I was thinking how the costume could look. Not to shabby either!

    Sorry guys, I dislike all the red trunk options. I think the blue looks best for this particular costume.

    About the ROTH/CAVILL comparison:

    Dark blue is great to see.
    Cartoonized dark blue feels artificial and... cartoonized.

    CAPE attached to the shoulders is elegant and epic.
    CAPE attached to the neck is kinky and terrible.

    Having no trunks works for 2011.
    Having ultra-slim tranks doesn't work for 2006.

    Wearing LONG BOOTS equals SUPERMAN.
    Wearing SHORT BOOTS equals visual unbalance and a pain in the a-- to see.

    LACK OF YELLOW S-SHIELD IN THE BACK doesn't work for both anyway.

    To me, ROTH is the Real Ghostbusters of the Superman franchise, awful quality. Cavill is Filmation GB.

    Your Routh/Cavill comparison looses all credibility right there.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.

    I to some extent agree, but I think it has to do with the fact the costume was designed to not have red trunks/yellow belt. The problem however is the costume feels like it's missing something.

    I'd ask that you please watch the way that you throw the word "gay" around here. There are some people who may not take to kindly to the way you are using it. Myself included.

    Didn't mean to be offensive, it was a mild joke. I will re-edit.

    Are you saying Cavill's look is closer to the original Superman like how the original Filmation Ghostbusters predates the Real Ghostbusters?

    While I have no real qualms with the Routh look I think I do prefer Cavill's look. Now, let's see if this movie will be good...

    I don't dislike Routh, but I don't think he looked more like Superman than Cavill does.

    Also, the suit looks wrong in all blue. I don't think any of the manips really solve that it wasn't designed to just drop in some red briefs, but it doesn't feel like Superman so much as an undressed blue ken doll or--being generous--a wetsuit for a Seaquest DSV movie. It does not give me confidence that they'll get anything else right. So far the best image for suggesting the right feel that I've seen was the photo-manipu of the Smallville shot with Clark putting glasses on, I think, Cat Grant.

    Yeah I almost think they designed it that way on purpose.

    I don't know if DC influenced the movie or vice versa, but much like Marvel's Thor & his latest armored look, I think Superman's all-blue costume is "the costume" in all, if not most, media for the time being.

    Actually, while it's not the most popular. The way it was styles in the 2006 Superman Returns was done many times before in the early years of Superman.

    Your opinion, one that many are not happy with cause it changed the iconic look to the character. That would be like taking away He-Man's furry shorts and replacing them with a jumpsuit. It changes the flow of the character.

    What do you mean by "tranks?" Do you mean trunks? The trucks again would have been fine in SR if they would have been fine if the costume itself wasn't utter garbage. All the little \S/ logos all over the suit was over kill!

    The boots were fine despite all same issue with the suit, all the \S/ logos all over them.

    Disagree with you! I like the \S/ shield on the backof the cape. It adds flare to it!

    This is a really bad analogy. Considering that when many people still hear the name Ghostbusters. They think of the film with Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Which then would relate to The Real Ghostbusters. If anything Routh would relate to the Filmation Ghostbusters cause of the lack of liking the series. And you can't really comment on Cavill's Superman cause we have yet to see his performace. But considering that this film will be it's own continuity and not trying to establish itself into the Universe that Donner created like Superman Returns did. It's already a better film!

    I know some claim that Superman losing his red trunks makes his costume more modern, but was there ever an era when they would have been considered "in"? If I saw a guy walking down the street with red briefs on the outside of his clothes at any time in my 35 years, I'd have thought he was nuts. Superman's look, outside of his genre, was never trendy in terms of fashion(it was based on the old fashioned strong man look from the circus). If someone doesn't like it, that's fine. Thinking that they were all that stopped Superman from becoming as popular as Batman is wacky imo.

    It also makes the cape more than just a cape. Without the iconic S on it, how is it any different from what is worn by all of the other caped superheroes of the past 75 years?

    Did he have red boots in the comic? The DCD first appearance Superman had blue booties.

    I wonder why DC and WB didn't get together to present a consistent look for the new Superman. Aside from having no red briefs, this movie costume doesn't look like Jim Lee's redesigned comic book costume.

    RE-read my post, I was saying the same. Both the capes suck without the S.

    The analogy: I wasn't talking about popularity but quality. REAL is utter garbage, terrible animation and insipid stories. FGB was visionary, inventive, original and featured top notch animation.

    I dunno, I think your version looks awesome, sure they aren't briegs exactly, but what you did at least makes that silly stuff on the sides make some sort of sense, as well as the "belt buckle" It looks a bit alien but hey he is one so its cool. When its all blue though it just looks like they are trying to be "cool" and have stuff on the suit for no reason.

    I don't trust you. I've seen both shows and even at it's lowest, Real Ghostbusters outdoes Filmation Ghostbusters in everyway. Your analogy is thus invalid.
