As for Dick and Barbara being in a relationship, I'm completely fine with that. But then again, I'm also completely fine with Clark Kent and Lois Lane, Peter Parker and Mary Jane and most of the relationships that are apparently make the characters "old," "unrelatable," and "boring."
Batman and Catwoman? Yeah, sure, I'm totally for that.
Superboy and Wonder Girl? Go for it.
Tim Drake and Spoiler? Bring that back.
Batman and Wonder Woman? If he's not going to date Catwoman, then by all means; the Justice League animated series convinced me that they have a pretty awesome chemistry.
I was expecting an outfit that screamed "Catwoman" a little more (like a Cooke-styled cat-eared bonnet), and this isn't necessarily it, but I'll be damned if Anne Hathaway doesn't look amazing in it. I agree with disposablepal and the others who said this (if there are any others), though; although she doesn't have cat ears or anything, the shape of the goggles makes this outfit look like a modern version of the costume that Julie Newmar wore in the 60s Batman TV show (when she had the mask, at least). But like other people said, since this image was labeled as "Selina Kyle," for all we know, she might eventually show up in an outfit that is more explicitly "Catwoman."
Unfortunately, news page trumps the forums. Next time just email us with a heads up about the big news, and we will credit you in the article. :)
Regarding Anne Hathaway's Catwoman outfit, I'm kind of missing the cat-eared bonnet that she wears in the comics, but still. That's mighty sexy.
Muted colors? Flashy effects? Yup. This is a Zack Snyder movie.
That's not to say this doesn't look pretty awesome. On the contrary, actually. Though the lack of the spit-curl in his hair is slightly disheartening, the suit itself is quite nice. I'm really liking the larger, more old-fashioned emblem on his chest; the shape of the S is giving off a Golden Age or Earth-2 vibe.
And the inclusion of the cartoonishly large vault door bent all to high heavens really reminds me of the old Max Fleischer Superman cartoons, which is a huge plus for me.
Bring back Hayley Atwell, lighten her hair a little bit (I'm not sure if she'd look as great as a straight-up blonde, but maybe a dirty blond would look nice on her), give her an American accent and suit her up as Sharon Carter. Would that be weird? Probably, but if you think about it, the entire Steve Rogers/Sharon Carter relationship is based on the completely awkward situation that she looks pretty much exactly like her aunt.
I also personally would like Bucky's return as The Winter Soldier in a sequel. I don't think he is large-scale enough of an adversary to carry a film, so he could probably be an enforcer for a larger villain who switches sides midway through the film.
And hell, why not, introduce The Falcon. Get him in there; his friendship with Cap has always been pretty good, not to mention that that would probably be the best way to fill the void of minority characters (save for the inevitable, obligatory, Sam Jackson Nick Fury cameo).
I think it's okay, and I think that once I get to see it in the actual interior artwork instead of just covers and Jim Lee promo images, it'll start growing on me a lot more. However, certain aspects of the style of the costume redesigns are rubbing me the wrong way. I'm all for functional costumes, and I often like when costumes are drawn to look more like cloth and armor that is worn instead of just a second skin, but drawing more lines doesn't necessarily mean that it'll look better. I mean, look at this guy:
And in some cases, it doesn't exactly even make sense. It looks as if, when they were "redesigning" Hal Jordan's costume, they said, "I don't know... give him shoulder pads?" And then later, they just figured that Kyle, Guy and John's outfits were completely fine without more armored accents to them. It's just weird.
I like a bunch of the redesigned costumes. I think the Superboy costume (at least the one he's wearing in his solo series) and those of the rest of the Superman family are more or less okay, though I think they have more selling to do on that whole "Kryptonian ceremonial armor" thing, which I also think is a bit lacking in the color yellow. And I think that Wonder Woman and Green Arrow's costumes are pretty cool as well. But at the same time, I was also just beginning to really get used to Batman's new costume, which was already armored up enough (and I did really enjoy that glowing yellow bat emblem), so I have no idea why they felt the need to change it again.
But then again, Spider-Man can apparently have 3-4 new costumes in a matter of a couple months, so what the hell do I know.
