    Superman Returns 2006 - Official Trailer on PAGE 6 (POST 101)!!!


    Don't know if this was posted before, apologies if so...

    Superman Returns, the next big screen supes movies is coming out in June 2006 with Brandon Routh as Clark/Supes & Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor. For me, like many others, Chris Reeve WAS SUPERMAN..however from the first stills of SR, Routh as Clark had a very striking resemblance to Reeve.



    I was happy for that, until I saw this:



    They decided to f*k with the suit and make it all darker, plus the \s/ shield is way to smaller and then the neck - supes always had a lower square neck and the cap would fold in at his traps. The trunks suck too..wats up with the low-ridin trunks!

    I really hope that was a pre-production pic and not what's going to be in the movie..

    Anyways, thoughts?

    WTF?! That suit blows!! It's like some gay-ass Calvin Klein wannabe designer made it. Superhero outfits are supposed to be designed by nerdy heterosexual men MIMICKING gay designers.


    Anyway, the dude they got to play supes needs a much wider back. He's got no V taper.

    It's being directed by Brian Singer, the guy that did the Xmen movies..

    Um yeah...Defiantly looks gay, but then again I am sure they are targeting alot of teenage girls with this. THey should have made him way cooler...similar to what they did to Batman in the Batman Beyond animated series...that character was updated for sure. Also had action sequences directed better than alot of movies but I digress.

    Superman defiantly needs something similar to this update IMO...this isnt the 1950's anymore.

    Nah man, Bats you can change because he's human, so the upgraded suit makes sense..but Supes is the man of steel, he don't need no armour..that would just make him too human. Plus the beyond Bats was not Bruce Wayne, while this new Supes is supposed to be the same Supes - the story is apparantly going to be a sequel to Superman 1 & 2...

    Superman without a cape would be like Batman without a Batmobile. It just wouldn't be right. Besides, Superman's outfit was ALWAYS supposed to be dorky. In the comics there were always jokes about some dude in a cape flying around in blue and red tights.


    But while Superman's outfit is dorky, it's never been considered GAY. Not like this. Seriously, if they keep this costume, they are going to have to change Lois Lane's name to Louis Lane and have the part be played by Harvy Firestein or something.

    Harvey Firestein ..lol.

    That suit does suck. It looks like they padded his delts too or he needs more pec. Colors suck..it's probably preproduction props.

    Batman Beyond and The Batman have a nice style going. Batman Begins has a frickin cool armor-suit.

    I'm so glad somebody started this thread. I love Superman almost as much as I love Bruce Lee, and I was devastated when I first saw the new suit. Here's what I will never be able to understand: You take a character as beloved as Superman, and you sign on to do his new movie. You are in an amazing position. You can bring one of the most loved characters to life and entertain millions of people. You can even bring new people into the fold and create new fans. So you, having this unlimited power, decide to take something perfect, something that has no reason to be changed, something that no one wants changed, and you change it. That's just choosing to piss people off. Everything has already been decided for you. The character has already been designed and perfected. Is there not one person staffing this thing that could say, "Hey man...maybe you shouldn't change **** that everybody already likes"? While you're at it, you may as well give him blonde hair, change his name, history, powers, everything, and go ahead and sink the movie before it's ever released. Rant over.

    I guess it could be worse like the one with Nicolas cage as superman who they never showed flying............... Hollywood is a F'd up place. Maybe they should call this movie the ambiguously gay superman.

    That suit actually looks like a throwback to the 50's era comic. It was darker, with a smaller "S". Definitely a throwback...except for the gayness and mullet starter kit.

    Yea he was gonna be Tim Burton's Supes.. Although I thought Batman 1 & 2 by Burton were great, I would've hated for him to 'gothicize' the Supes mythos..

    The smaller \S/ is definately the early Supes..but those damned 'manties' (low rise trunks) have to go...

    Costume as a "throwback"


    The Singer costume is NOT a throwback..It's an expression of Singer's own stamp on Superman..I'm attaching two depictions of the early Superman of the Late thirties..Note where the cape attaches to the shoulders. The lower neck line ( lower than Routh's throat choke version ) and the mere fact that looking at these two old classic Superman drawings, that Shuster was already heading toward evolving the classic costume known the world over. NO "hip hugger" briefs, no belt that tapers downward toward the pelvic area, and the boots fit high as they were meant too. Comparisons of Singer's costume to the early versions, or to TV costumes like George Reeves suit is ludicrous. It's like comparing apples to oranges..Singer's suit is NOT a Superman costume...Not by a true definition of the words. It's closer akin to a cheap party costume,

    No, i think they will keep the colors ... if you keep the colors too "pro american" or to those of the american flag,( Red, actor is white, and blue) it will not sit well with the overseas market... this reddish, brownish, burgundy will slightly, if not on a sub-consious level, allow one to better relate superman as a hero of earth, rather a creation of the american mind....

    or... i just need to get laid and oot think about such things....

    throwback one more time


    ..One more point..I never expected Singer to copy Chris Reeve's suit, I did figure he'd tweak it some, not trash it..Here are to more pics..One is an even EARLIER Shuster drawing of Superman..Even then the costume didn't look like a speedo, and you can plainly see it's not a forerunner of the Singer design..The next pic is a side by side comparison..Be honest..Who looks more like Superman?

    Routh in that picture just simply looks like a flamboyant underwear model.

    Singer's costume is a cheap party costume. People who are giving this suit a nod aren't really Superman fans..They're film fans. Superman fans know the difference. Here's one more contrast phot, then I'm done with this thread..

    By throwback I meant the smaller "S" and darker colors, not an exact replica. But it could be worse, the could have the design team from the old hulk movies that featured daredevil and thor. OR the first punisher movie.

    You know, I don't remember asking them to change anything about Supes. Did any of you ask them to ****ty up his costume?
    If nothing else, Singer should be berated for having bad taste if this is the costume he likes more than the real suit.
