Why am I writing this article? Why am I calling your attention out to something as silly as underwear? But not just to anyone's underwear...this happens to concern the preservation of this iconic figures individual look from the rest of them.
Just yesterday when we signed on to CBM.COM we were pleasantly surprised to see what we had all been waiting for regarding anything SUPERMAN. We saw A FIRST LOOK OF HENRY CAVILL AS THE NEW MAN OF STEEL.
As we continued to look at it and look at it and even look at it three or four more times we asked questions one to another about several things. Where's the S curl? Why does he have a rubber suit on? Is the Shield on the cape? Why is he robbing a bank? etc. Yet, nobody really asked "where are the red underoos?" and I think it's because when it was announced that there was a first image of the new suit, it was altogether assumed that the red underpants were NOT THERE simply because they could not be seen at first glance.
However, this article is for those of you that feel that Superman's Iconic look has come under siege. Threatened by the plague of "everyone else is doing it, so why shouldn't he?". So I'm here to show you why I believe that the RED UNDERroos have not gone astray but may still be here to stay. Here is my proof after brightening the picture almost to its max and I found that there is a difference in color (red) between that of his leg and crotch area.
Why yes, it does looks like they are staying true to the look while modernizing the suit on other ways (the suits material). To me the evidence currently shows that Nolan/Snyder have the red roos in place BUT have purposely made it dark in that area to see what kind of reaction the image will receive once revealed to the public eye.
Does it concern me that this controversial image could in the end reveal that Superman is not wearing his red roos? YES IT DOES, because to me its not a question of whether or not they are currently in place. Evidence to this matter has been seen. My concern is that at this point they could still go either way with the costume design since they are not currently visible in the lighting that was provided.
My hope is that when he comes out of that vault and stands straight up to prepare for take off that the image we see is in the likeness of what we see in the following image.
Everyone here at CBM is great and I for one really enjoy doing articles that present real concerns that exist in the CBM community... and while none of these things that are argued about are things that would change our lives for the better or for the worse....they certainly are regarding topics that help us escape reality if not but for a small moment.
