Superman Returns...pics of the new guy as Supes.

This is for my fellow comic book nerds....

My oh my I have really low expectations for this movie now.
At least the Batman movie is going to be good.

double hmm...

I got mixed feelings about that picture.

Maroon instead of bright red: non-traditional, but I don't think it looks too bad.
Boots and belt look cool.
They screwed with the chest emblem too much. It looks too small, and I don't like it raised like that.
The worst is the guy's expression in that picture. He doesn't look heroic. He looks like Brandon Fraiser trying to be serious (read: like an idiot).

Meh, in the end, no one picture is gonna make or break the movie for me. I'm still forking over 8 bucks to see it.

It kinda reminds me of Max Fleischer's Superman.

The "S" on the belt is overkill.

I really hope they change some things about it.

Overall, he looks better in it than your average geek at a costume ball would.

I'm sold. They successfully added a few new touches without changing the basic look. My buddy pointed out that "Reeve's underwear was much bigger."

I like the dulling of the reds and the greater amount of blue overall, but like Harry Knowles, I agree that the first shot of Supes should have been in flight.

Oh jeez...maroon is not red. Red was cool. Maroon is...maroon.

Superman is supposed to be pretty cool, this guy looks like a fucktard in the tight blue tights.

What I mean to say is they should have beefed the costume up a little kind of like they did Batman and Spiderman. Give the guy a little definition, make him look like the Man of Steel. Anything to avert the gaze from his Super-crotch, which now that it's been mentioned, I can't stop focusing on when I look at the picture.

I hate to nitpick, but this is my childhood their screwing with. How can I look my nephew in the eye and say "Superman is oh, so cool" while pointing to this guy despite his serious Brenden Frazier style face? I've already lost credibility with him for the Hulk.....

All that being said....I'll probably still go see it....*coughAhem!

He looks far too young to be such a poweful hero. I mean, just look at him in the comics, he's a big-square-jawed manly man, Routh looks too young, too small and too innocent... he looks fantastic as Clark but as the man in tights? Ehh...

His suit from the belt down is great but the chest is terrible! Small S? WHY!?! And really, why are their overly visible seams around his arms and shoulders? And the cape, the cape comes out of his neck.. They should've gone for the over the shoulders look.

I really wish they cast and designed Supes like an Alex Ross painting..


Regardless I'm still lookin' forward to the film, I love Singer's work.

Well.. Maybe they chose him because he could act hopefully. I do remember at one stage they were looking at Nicolas Cage for the part.
Come to think of it, can someone confirm that when ChristopherReeve was cast, he got the part mostly because of his square jaw and was actually blonde at that time?

The only thing I don't like is the maroon. It's not red enuff. Superman's cape and costume is supposed to have red on it not maroon. The rest is good tho.

Yah, the guy looks like a Christopher Reeve wannabe. I was so amazed when I saw his movies - like, they took a cartoon character and found an actor who could actually pull it off. This guy, well, I'll have to see him in action. After all, I was pleasantly surprised by that Keaton guy in the first Batman.

I think Routh looks good for the part, but as mentioned earlier, I didn't like his look in this particular picture. But again, it's just one picture. However, like others have voiced concerns over, I'm not happy with the costume modifications. The maroon just doesn't work, and they need to get back to the traditional Superman red. Also, though I'm slightly ok with the S on the belt buckle--better than Batman's bat-nipples, right?--I'm not ok with what they've done with his chest emblem. The S is just a big rubber mold and looks more like it came out of a cheap Halloween costume kit than what's supposed to be the real deal.


Regardless....I'm gonna see this no matter what as well :\

i don't think people will buy it..

something about the costume is just too... blah. no action or tactical gear... i know that supes doesn't and wouldn't need anything like that, but just the same i don't know if people these days will buy Superman.

don't get me wrong i have more faith in brian singer than i do god, but maybe it's just that picture, its too plain. he's superman he should stand out. it looks like he's trick or treating.

i guess i'll wait till the movie, i'll see it anyway.

I'm not sure if the realism and muted colors work for superman like they do so well for Batman (Tim Burton Batman not Schumacher Batman). I always thought Superman was meant to be a little flashy and unrealistic. I have faith in Bryan Singer though, I don't think he'll disappoint.

That may be a pre-production still, and not truly representative of the final product. Reeves' superman suit is probably the best superhero costume in the movies. I never liked the body armour version of the bat suit, and don't care for Spider-Man's raised rubber webs instead of their being part of the fabric.

But that's really not indicative of the quality of the movie. There's never been a good live action batman movie, but both Spider-Man movies have absolutely rocked. The costume can have problems and the movie still work.

^ thanks micah!! that's what my brain refused to come up with. it seems to lack a certain dynamic. i know supes is supposed to be the original superhero and doesn't need cool stuff but it just doesn't seem like it will work. truth, justice and the american way don't seem to hold much power over people today. IMHO.

On topic, I enjoyed all the original Supermans except for the last one. One of my best memories as a young child is being woke up, lead to the car in my nightgown, and driven to the drivein to see the second Superman. Here's hoping to a decent movie.

I'n not feeling this guy. Maybe it's just the expression on this one picture of him. He doesn't look at all serious. Like others have said, he's looking like her trying to fint into the part. He doesn't look like he's one with the character. Maybe he'll grow into it. I'll wait for more info before I shell over 8 buckaroos.

Hmm...I ain't buying it. There's something not just right about the picture. The actor's too young. Maroon ain't red! Logo on chest ain't big nuf. Belt isn't yellow enough.

Kinda reminds me of Lois and Clark show, it doesn't remind me of Reeves (RIP)

That costume doesn't even look as good as any of the tv versions (the best live action version of which is The Adventures of Superboy).

But I stand by my assertion that one publicity still is no indication of quality.

Hubby and I were discussing this the other day. It seems like the majority of movies that come out nowadays are either remakes or sequels.

Eh. I don't see any problem with producing new Superman movies. There are somewhere between 3 and 4 thousand Superman stories available to be told from the comic books, and a half dozen new ones every month.

They do Superman because he's the most popular comic book character in history (not currently, but throughout history), which gives them instand character recognition.

Certainly there are other stories out there to be told. Alan Moore's Supreme stories are arguably the best Silver Age Superman stories ever written.

But when a movie studio starts to look for a comic to adapt, they want the big guns. These movies cost a literal fortune to make, so they want a proven commodity. At DC that's Superman and Batman. DC would like for Wonder Woman to be in that class, but she isn't. At Marvel you have Spider-Man and the X-Men, and a step down from those, the Fantastic Four.

I don't have as much of a problem with the adaptations that haven't been done before as I do with the total recycles. We already have like 4 superman movies, why another one? Why not a new idea instead.
