I'm actually ok with the new comstume.

Quite an interesting bulge ye have there, sir. And by interesting, I mean that's all I can see.

I think it looks just awful. The hair looks off and the logo just looks awful. I don't know how I would change it, though.

I actually like both the costume and the choice of actor. A big improvement from the last Superman movie. It's been a long demand of fans to have uniform with underwear under wear and not over the pants. He could have the red belt, though, like the new comics Superman after the Flashpoint event:

I understand this is a Nolan written project, but it's just a little too dark for my tastes. Still, better than the publicity shots from the "Superman Lives" Burton-Cage abortion.

I'm not sure, I think to be Superman you kind of have to wear your underwear over your pants.  It's that whole hobo chic thing.  Changing in a phone booth and underwear over the pants.  I'm sure I've seen him asking for change once or twice.

I hope Nolan is succesful in making Superman viable at the movies. If that happens and someone manages to do the same with Wonder-Woman (the most difficult of them all in my opinion), we could have a DC team-up like Marvel is doing with the Avengers.

Yeah, that right bicep has lighting issues.

I doubt it is a complaint of longtime fans.

The probelm is that (even though I like DC more than Marvel) DC characters are very fantastic. It is difficult to give them a realistic feel. I hope this works out. And I really hope that this Superman movie doesn't have a Suckerpunch/300 feel at all, since it is  Snyder who is directing it.

There always was. Only before it was only with super-heroines. Wonder-Woman was created and thought of as a dominatrix, Powergirl always had teenager fetishes instead of normal breasts, Supergirl always wore minimum clothes - she even fell in love -romantically!!!- with her horse for some time. Most superheroines always dressed imodestly and were always associated explicitily or implicitily with some kind of sexual fetish. The feminilization of men could only lead to that.

Comicbook or Norse myth Thor would easily take comicbook Superman, what with Kal-El's vulnerability to "magic." Movie Thor holds no interest for me. Movie Superman doesn't exist until he puts on red underwear.

I always thought that was the lowest point of the JLA/Avengers crossover- and it only works because apparently "magic" from the Marvel Universe doesn't work in the DC universe and vice versa. In a situation where all things are equal, Thor would hand Supes his red underoos if he hit him with Mjolnir (not that I think Thor would necessarily win in a fight, Superman does have a large assortment of powers that would enable him to win, but a being with a well-known weakness to magic does NOT get up after being hit by the God of Thunder's magic hammer).

Point (barely) conceded on blonde Thor. These comments and the linked graphics are worth reading:

Quote
As for Superman being able to lift Thor's hammer, people say he did this because he is worthy, or simply that he's strong enough. Here is the the truth, Thor gave it to him, knowing he was worthy of the moment. After the battle, we saw superman attempting to lift it again, but failing ( here). After beating Thor, Superman admits that he may be the single most strongest opponent he ever faced ( here)...  And last but not least, Superman admits beating him barely, it's a 50 / 50 thing.

Don't like any of the colors of his costume. I suppose the director would claim he is being "darker and edgier", but I don't want a dark, edgy Superman; I want the old, bright, patriotic Superman--the guy who saved Europe from the Nazis 60 years ago. I want that one.
