    So I guess new Superman costume IS different after all. I like it actually. And Cavill looks the part.

    Nah, you're exaggerating. If one has to really "update" it, then this is not the bad way to do it. Besides he kind of looks very much like the new revamped Superman costume in comic books. What I like about it is that it shows a more developed musculature, but not in a cheesy Batman 1989-1997 kind of way. Superman I know from childhood is much bulkier than Christopher Reeve.

    It is red blue and yellow (yeah, I know.. too dark). It has a cape (and rather long one this time). It is more alien looking (which makes sense). And the actor looks very much like Superman (and he's an alright actor too). Feels like Superman and not in a cheesy way. I'm fine with it.

    With the cape I guess it looks okay. It's difficult to get a good idea when we see it from a camera phone posted on the internet. Once it's on the big screen, in the context of the movie, and it appears more cinematic, then we'll know.

    on the bright side I just had the biggest Johnnygasm I've had in ages.


    I just got the new Superman Movie Anthology Blu set today for my upcoming birthday.

    I put on the original theatrical release of Superman with the 2.0 audio. Cranked it up and there was the


    ORIGINAL SOUND.


    OH MY GOODNESS, WHAT A POWERFUL JOHNNYGASM.


    I know that doesn't make a bit of difference to some of you but this is one of my three most favorite films ever and the new versions I have on dvd and blu prior to this release did not have the corrected sound. It always sounded wrong.

    When that Big Superman S hit the screen IT EXPLODED ON THE SCREEN. It was awesome. I thought I was going to blow a gasket.

    Did your armchair shudder satisfyingly as the S CLANGED into place? I love that.

    I think with out the cape the suite doesn't look that great. However, I am enclined to agree with Luke that it looks too close to Tim Burton's version...scary.
