So, is James Earl Jones going to be cast as J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man reboot?

Lawrence Fishburne to play Perry White.

What an odd choice.

Whatever interest I had in this movie just died on general principle alone.

Hollywood needs to return to its roots for this to be successful.

That suit is atrocious, and the guy looks like a total d-bag wearing it.

^ Not to mention the shot itself is just horrible. The body position, the facial expression, the lighting... He looks like a drunk trying to hold himself up.

This does not invigorate my desire to see a new Superman movie.

Well Supes is kind of a douche anyway.

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

Wow, I wanna thank you guys for letting me know I'm supposed to hate this. I've been geeking out about it all afternoon, and discussing how cool it looks with another guy I work with. Personally I think the more textured look works in the real world a lot better than bright red and blue spandex, but what do I know?

Oh, and while I agree Laurence Fishburne as Perry White is an odd choice, I also think it's a brilliant choice!

Isn't Superman's costume made from the blankets that his parents provided him when they shot him off Krypton?

Why should Kryptonian fabric look the same as Earth fabric? Wasn't Krypton like hundreds of thousands of years more advanced than Earth is? But their fabric should look like Spandex?

Yes, the famous rubber blankets of Krypton. Snyder's film is the first to replicate this authentically. The red blanket was especially large (see endless cape in pic).

For the same reason Kryptonians look the same as Earthlings.

I concur, he looks horrible for the part and I like him as an actor. This is going to be a trainwreck.

Yet his cape looks like my suede curtains.

The best Superman costume can be found in Superman III.



This stupid "update to the new fashion" costumes are just killing these movies. I also didn't like the "mecha" Batman look of The Dark Knight, either.

What a joke, that costume is so lame. WTF are they doing to this great franchise? Looks like a straight to video movie or TV movie of the week. Btw, looks like the Fonz had a son. There is no way in hell those images are official and make it to the final cut...no way jose. It will crash and burn big time. I bet they're just in prelims.

eSupes' costume was supposed to have been knit by his mom (in every version of Supes I've followed) out of the fabric that covered him in the rocket that came from Krypton. It's supposed to look like earth fabric.

This costume makes him look like Aquaman from the Jersey Shore.

Official plot synopsis revealed:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Spoiler  
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
“In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.”

Hasn't Superman's origin story been rehashed enough by now? Do we really need an angst-y 20-something Superman discovering his powers for the first time?

I was optimistic, but now I'm simply pessimistic. That costume is nowhere near as bad as how un Superman like he looks.

I LOVE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well... What if the movie ends up good? I mean ok, the suit isn't quite what we're used to when it comes to Superman, but let's give it a chance at least, no?

The cape actually might be an improvement, particularly for flying sequences. But the rubber fishscales on the costume have to be toned down. A lot of it looks ripped off from Thor's design.
