As an avid Superman fan of 38 years, now aged 44, I am deeply concerned about how DC and Syn/Nol are trying to reinvent an Icon. If it aint broke, don't fix it. As simple as that. I had believed for a long time that I would hate the New Man of Steel movie, but after viewing it, I wanted to watch it again. Then after a day, I began to question it all over again. Something was wrong, something was not right. As with the 52 comics.....it was the Costume. The whole Superman story was updated for a new generation...OK. It looked good, but not the Costume. It didn't say SUPERMAN. Fine it had the S Symbol, cape and boots..but..no pants/shorts( no they are not y-fronts or underpants...gimmme a break). They have always been there, part of the whole effect and partly to break up the uniform blue. The costume in the movie is too Dark. Why the hell does he need a belt buckle when he has no pants? They have tried to sell us the idea of removing the pants, by using various patterns and rubbish,,,guess what it does not work and not for SUPERMAN. Superman in jeans and construction boots and a baby cape.....???????
Where's my pants man?? Give em back!!
All I'm saying is, if there is anyone out there who feels as I do about the whole costume thing, can we get the people in charge to change him back to SUPERMAN some how? For the Man of Steel 2, lets say....Because he now wishes to fit in on Planet Earth he decides to manipulate his Krypton Undergarment (ahem!), bring a more Earthly colour blue to it and be more dignified with PANTS!!!!!................ok,ok......a Christopher Reeve look ,with the whole ARMOR thing! It will look cool I promise ! Any way these are my thoughts.... got a lot more but, cant use vulgar language or denounce the ALLMIGHTY SNYDER/NOLAN BATMAN RUBBISH TERRIBLEY CAST BALE RUBBER SUITED REWRITE HISTORY OUR WAY OR THE HIGHWAY JUST MAKE BUCKS BATMANS CAPE WAS A CURTIN, S STANDS FOR HOPE,MAKE IT UP AS YOU GO ALONG,KILL SUPERMAN,SUPERMAN MUST KILL PEOPLE,ACTION,ACTION,ACTION!!
