Blog@Newsarama revealed a set photo from the Man of Steel shoot, currently filming. It shows a tiny glimpse of Superman's full costume for the upcoming film. I'll hide it under the break, for anyone who wants to avoid this sort of thing, though it's just some people in costume standing around.
So, looking at this photo, I came to a realization.
Without the red trunks, he looks like Ultraman.
(the Crime Syndicate Guy, not the Japanese robot hero)
Seriously, if I didn't know this was from Man of Steel and couldn't make out the "S" (and I kind of can't) I'd think "Oh sweet, Ultraman."
So maybe it's just the nerd conditioning, but because of this, he looks like a bad guy to me. And maybe it takes a REALLY good guy, to throw some red trunks over that thing.
Anyway. Just my thoughts.
