New Movie Brings Superman and Costume Debate Into Theaters

We’ve seen a lot of good and downright terrible Superman movies over the years. I admit, I’m a bit worried about the Superman: Man of Steel reboot, but every small piece of news that comes to light about the upcoming movie is boosting my confidence.

Zack Snyder of 300 fame (also of the critically questioned Suckerpunch and fan-loved-and-hated Watchmen) will be directing the movie, and I, for one, think this is right up his alley. Of course, I’m ready for the CG and boosted lighting and for Superman to fly really, really slow at some points. But hey, he’s faster than a speeding bullet, so maybe he won’t be going that slow, just the world around him.

Recently it’s been announced that Amy Adams will be playing against lead man Henry Cavill. For those fans of the comics, this is a return to the classic Clark and Lois dynamic. Lois is older than Clark (in Adams case, almost a decade older than Cavill), and she is more professional than him. She takes on a mature, boss-like mentality that Clark needs to flourish as well as being his flirty love interest.

Costumes have not yet officially been announced for the movie, but with the recent DC reboot and costume reveal, fans are wondering what the Man of Steel will look like.

See? No red undies. And yet I can’t decide if I like this look or not (even if I complain about superheroes wearing their underwear on the outside of their pants). It looks somehow… less Superman.

Now that is a classic Superman Costume. So while we know Lois is going to be perfect (I can’t wait to see Adams in that role), we’ll have to wait awhile to see what Superman will be wearing when he’s not farm boy reporter Clark Kent.

Besides, Superman costumes are adorable… on everyone.
