    You guys are arguing over whose opinion is fact, right? Just checking.

    I liked both Ghostbusters series, but what about this new Superman movie?

    I enjoyed a lot about both GB shows too, but I'll always love how Filmation's Hauntquarters reminded me of Hordak's throne room on She-Ra (complete with similar minions). Like a lot of those shows, I can never really go back and watch them with the same love I had as a kid.

    I totally do not see Routh as either GB though. Those shows were too unrelated, not like two different versions of the same property. He's just not that big of a blip. He's more like Lazenby in James Bond, or even Kilmer and/or Clooney in the previous Batman movies. Nothing against him, but his turn is unfortunately over. I await the new movie to see if that's really bad or not. Cavill may be fine, but if the movie is awful and flops horribly then it'll mean as much as Jason Momoa in the new Conan.

    Well Lex Luthor appears to be helping out with the conversation a little. Hey, we still haven't heard that there is a Luthor in this, have we? I'll bet they hint at him for a sequel like they did with the Joker in Batman Begins.

    Yeah, pretty much . Just another day at the .org boards.

    As for the new Superman movie, I honestly don't know what to make of it.
    The costume is mostly a miss for me, and the loss of John Williams' theme isn't helping matters either.
    I guess it's mostly a waiting game until we see the trailer.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    This is how I feel too. If Goyer wasn't writing it and Snyder had directed this right after Dawn Of The Dead(the only movie of his I liked), I might be more optimistic.

    Yeah. Saw this up on Supermanhomepage... This outfit is sort of weird. There are just too many styles on this one.

    Really like it. Looks much better and visually creative compared to just white robes.

    It seems with the advent of High Definition movie makers are copying what comics started in the late 80s and early 90s, over detailing the product. More detail isn't always a good thing.

    Much like the costume designers for DC's New 52, those behind the movie need to earn a paycheck(as well as feed their ego). If they kept the exact same costumes, they couldn't do that as easily.

    I don't think they needed to stick exactly with what came before. For example I don't mind the colors they used, I just think the way they used the material was a bit too much. It makes it look like it has more texture. Which I don't think is needed.

    Dunno. The old glowing white suits were quite un-Earthly.
    This one looks like it fell out of some fantasy barbarian movie... doesn't really say "Hey, this guy is from a highly advanced alien race".

    Good grief. Marlon Brando is spinning in his grave. And Russell Crowe? Double fail.

    So Superman is sent to Earth by Robin Hood who is dressed like Aragorn only to be raised by Robin Hood again who is dressed like we don't know who yet (I'm guessing Ray Kinsella for now).

    RE Zod, between this movie and Spider-Man, I'm seeing way too many spandexed asses of late.

    Jor-El's costume is interesting. Not totally sold but we'll see. I never like to judge things made for the big screen based on off-screen snaps. They are concerned about how they look on-camera, not in some random pic someone took. That being said, it's interesting that there appears to be some skin-tight suit similar to Superman's under his robe.

    I don't think it has anything to do with High Definition, since film is higher def than anything we have on home video. I think its more a stylistic shift. Part of it is to try to create more "realistic" costumes and part of it seems to be a huge fear of having any large patches of solid color.

    It very much looks like he has the same basic suit as Superman under all the extra bits.

    Interesting observation RE the avoidance of color and you might be right. It's kind of the anti-technicolor. They seem to be okay with lots of black and near-solid gray though.

    I just noticed it happening more with the move to hidef filming.

    I also figured it had some to do with comic companies who have their designers being more involved with the films. Kind of like how after a movie is released the drawn versions look like their movie counter parts for an issue or two.

    I don't think the Jor-El costume is that bad. It's gone through a ton of changes over the years anyway. The first time I saw it was the white one in the first Superman movie. Although, I grew up with the John Byrne Kryptonian costumes from Man Of Steel and my personal favorite version is the Silver Age costume.

    I'm still not looking forward to this movie based on the people making it & the use of Mark Waid's Birthright mini-series as inspiration. I hope I'm wrong.

    Well.... This Jor-El costume is....okay. Reminds me of Crowe in Gladiator in a way. But I still stand by the fact (for me) that the actual Superman costume is stupid. Screw all this change crap, in the comics and otherwise. Superman is Superman and there isn't a damn thing wrong with the way his costume WAS. It represented light and hope and he went about his job in the same way... Not through darkness and shadow-ness. I'm not convinced. At all. I'll see the movie just for the love of the character, but so far I'm not too optimistic about it. We shall see!
