Hopefully this means no more armor bullshit.
dragon316 - 4/25/2024, 9:21 AM
@HermanM - he wore armor in movies?
HermanM - 4/25/2024, 9:32 AM
@dragon316 - yah
JobinJ - 4/25/2024, 10:53 AM
@HermanM - what armor?
Izaizaiza - 4/25/2024, 8:54 AM
Corenswet really does seem to embody the character! Really excited to see how this turns out
McMurdo - 4/25/2024, 12:27 PM
@Izaizaiza - he looks the part but we've yet to see him even say a line. But from past roles ya he seemingly is going to dominate the role.
Izaizaiza - 4/25/2024, 12:32 PM
@McMurdo - I first saw him in a historical fiction show called "Hollywood". He was great in it, very strong actor. Even then I said to my wife that if that guy could bulk up, he'd be a great superman. He just oozes wholesome integrity. My fingers are crossed, but I think he is going to redefine the role and really make it his own.

@Izaizaiza - I think the potential is there for him to be the greatest Clark since Reeves too
Izaizaiza - 4/26/2024, 9:28 AM
@McMurdo - fingers crossed!
Evansly - 4/25/2024, 8:54 AM
The title makes it sound like he's referring to wearing the suit from Man of Steel instead of for the new movie
elgaz - 4/25/2024, 9:06 AM
@Evansly - I thought the same, badly worded
bkmeijer1 - 4/25/2024, 11:40 AM
@Evansly @elgaz - I kinda got used to movie titles neing spelled in caps in titles, so I didn't pick up on it. Could've been worder better though
Origame - 4/25/2024, 8:59 AM
I mean, this is biased in a very particular way. This description could apply to a t shirt and sweat pants.
DeadClunge - 4/25/2024, 9:02 AM
@Origame - or a godamn onesie!
DeadClunge - 4/25/2024, 8:59 AM
he says Superman's suit "is the most mobile of any of the other suits I’ve worn."

This suit gonna be trash i can tell 😭🤔

I hope I'm wrong tho
bobevanz - 4/25/2024, 9:00 AM
@DeadClunge - how do you assume this lol
DeadClunge - 4/25/2024, 9:05 AM
@bobevanz - nova corps, high evolutionary, Adam warlock...all in leather CW looking type suits.

The picture of the emblem gives me hope but I feel we may get something along the lines of the Superman and Lois suit. Gunn doesn't have a great eye for translating suits to the big screen, he's very hit & miss IMO
FireandBlood - 4/25/2024, 9:21 AM
@DeadClunge - Tbf his DC shits did look better than his Marvel ones, especially Peacemaker. But I haven’t got high hopes.
DeadClunge - 4/25/2024, 9:36 AM
@FireandBlood - yeah I agree on the SS ones, but then again he did pick some ridiculous characters to he on his team.

Superman better not look like javelin 😭😅😫
bobevanz - 4/25/2024, 9:00 AM
The dceu was a failed experiment because they gave Snyder way too much reach and oversight, good grief
Doomsday8888 - 4/25/2024, 9:08 AM
You hate Snyder, we get it.

Origame - 4/25/2024, 9:23 AM
@Doomsday8888 - I swear, Snyder always gets a free pass to hate on, even though his last dceu theatrical movie was almost a decade ago.

And of course the people who keep hating on Snyder will also insist we can't talk bad about the latest mcu movie 🙄
Izaizaiza - 4/25/2024, 9:35 AM
@bobevanz - Agreed. And, Snyder was just the wrong person for the job. He wasn't actually interested in the characters, just in remaking them.
ObserverIO - 4/25/2024, 1:00 PM
@Origame - It's almost like there's a difference between Marvel and DC's attempts at a cinematic universe, huh.
Origame - 4/25/2024, 2:59 PM
@ObserverIO - so? They both made bad movies. It's hypocritical fanboy nonsense to continue b!tching about near decade old movies yet say we can't talk bad about people who are currently making movies.

Ffs, the marvels was released in November and people in this very comments section bashing Snyder for his dc movies are arguing we need to stop talking about the marvels.
ObserverIO - 4/25/2024, 3:53 PM
@Origame - The Marvels didn't ruin the MCU franchise because the universe has strong enough foundations to recover from films like The Marvels, Quantumania and Love and Thunder. But films like Batman V Superman hindered the DC cinematic universe from progressing to that point. They were the foundations and they were bad foundations.

I thank Kevin Feige every day for giving us the MCU and I should probably remember to curse Snyder every day too, for robbing us of the DC Cinematic Universe. But cursing's not a kind thing to do, so I won't.
Origame - 4/25/2024, 4:00 PM
@ObserverIO - the marvels didn't ruin it TO YOU. And for most people, marvel was ruined long before even love and thunder. Those 3 movies you listed really are just the latest and proof the franchise has fallen under.

But again, none of this matters. If it was literally just the marvels then I should be fully in my right to complain about it. The foundation shouldn't matter. In fact, the rest of it being a strong foundation only makes the crappier parts even worse.

Basically speaking, there is no excuse other than caring about the brand over quality storytelling. And what you're arguing for is insuring the mcu will never improve.
TheVisionary25 - 4/25/2024, 9:00 AM
Dude has a good resume…

Stunt performers really should be getting more recognition , starting with their own category at the Oscars or award shows in general!!.

Anyway , hopefully we get a look at the suit sooner rather then later.
Goldboink - 4/25/2024, 10:30 AM
@TheVisionary25 -
Both of the guys in the Mando suits are in the credits now. A step in the right direction.
TheVisionary25 - 4/25/2024, 10:37 AM
@Goldboink - that’s good.
Lisa89 - 4/25/2024, 9:09 AM
There's nothing kids today will relate to more than an alien dressed as a 1930s circus strongman. Go for it, Jimmy!
HermanM - 4/25/2024, 9:32 AM
@Lisa89 - They'll relate to a guy from a farm with powers he doesn't know the explanation/origin of who decides to use them for good and to right the things they wish they could, who wears a costume inspired by colorful sports teams and other athletic fields to stand out to people as a public performing persona. That's what the character actually is. Being an alien is just the excuse for the powers and largely irrelevant to Superman's identity as he didn't even know he was an alien in the comics until many years into adulthood, well into his Superman career, and when he found out, it meant nothing to him beyond the explanation for his abilities. He didn't start going around and dressing like he was from Krypton, wearing its symbols, and pretending to represent a place he only lived on for a day or two and has no memory or formative years of.
Lisa89 - 4/25/2024, 9:35 AM
@HermanM - My comment is about red undies, but you do you. 😘
HermanM - 4/25/2024, 10:46 AM
@Lisa89 - color balance is timeless, which is why the red trunks and yellow belt are a must on the suit. Swimmers, strongmen, bodybuilders, boxers, and all manner of other athletes all wear trunks to this day. Many men even wear basketball shorts over tight pants now to work out. Every profession that wore trunks in the 30s still wears them today, so there's nothing "dated" about them. Nobody has worn capes since the 1600s though.

But the Superman suit was never just a pair of trunks ; it was a fusion of a bunch of different athletic and european adventurer elements into a wholly new creation: the Superman costume. Nothing quite like it before it existed. It cannot be dated since it isn't based off of any passe trend.

Its color balance and design are perfect: a sea of blue at the top and bottom of the suit balanced by the red & yellow S shield and trunks which are similar in size and shape to each other occupy the mid upper and mid lower portions of the suit, with the red cape and red boots as the anchoring ends to the blue. That's why it works.

@HermanM - TLDR
HermanM - 4/25/2024, 10:55 AM
@JobinJ - I won't tailor my comment for your attention span
Lisa89 - 4/25/2024, 11:24 AM
@JobinJ - I, on the other hand, will.

@Lisa89 - You should be able to a like a comment twice. I wanna give you one for the gif and one for the pun.

RE: 'Corenswet a "down to earth and just a sweet guy."

---Okay, I want THAT phrase "down to earth and just a sweet guy."
