Please help me settle a dispute on another male dominated board.

Please vote on how you think the new Superman looks.

Do you think he is hot? Do you think the costume is nice? Do you think he looks like Christopher Reeve? Do you think his costume is as nice or nicer than Reeve's?

I know you guys aren't hard core comic book fans so thanks in advance.

    It's bad. Very bad. Is it just me, or is the costume padded? It looks very obvious to me.

    No, it's definitely padded.

    Man, I need to find a smaller picture. Is there any way to shrink the size of an existing picture?

    The new guy is hot, but the outfit sucks.

    As a general rule, when you put anyone in head to toe spandex=not a good look.

    They should have gotten rid of the swoop in the hair for the new Superman. That was okay for the 70s, but a little effiminate looking today, especially since he's no Christopher Reeves.

    I think he looks "affected." I don't like him at all.

    maybe I'm missing it but I don't really see a difference from the Reeves superman outfit.

    Reeves looked better in his.

    But, that may be because I was 10 when I watched the movies. I'll have to pull out the video and look at the cover again.

    Do you think he is hot?
    Yes, the guy is hot.

    Do you think the costume is nice?


    I think it looks like a classic Superman costume, which is dorky and effeminant (sp?)

    Do you think he looks like Christopher Reeve?

    Yes, only the guy in the picture is much cuter/hotter.

    Do you think his costume is as nice or nicer than Reeve's?

    A little better than Reeve's


    I think they definitely, definitely could have done something better with the hair. It is very out of date. Personally I also would have liked a major costume update (a la Batman), but I know comic book people would probably be against that. I mean, I think old Superman and Batman fit in just fine back then, and new Batman fit in good with Gotham City in the new movies. I just don't picture "old Superman", which is what I consider those pictures to be, fitting into a movie with a modern-day setting.

    I can't see Superman with spiked hair like the boys of today. sorry. I do like the red leather cape though.

  • dia99dia99 Posts: 1,998Registered Users
    I don't see spiked either, just maybe not the swoop and a little less mousse :roll: :D

    Ok, thanks for the replies.

    I think the suit looks horrific, but the fan boys swear that laymen and women :roll: don't know what they are looking at anyway and they will like anything you put in front of them.

    I definitely think the colors are off. The read is purple and the blue is too dark. Plus I think this guy is too little and skinny to play Superman. But I guess we shall see once the movie comes out.
  • NetGNetG Posts: 8,116Registered Users
    Umm....either he's not too skinny to play superman, or that outfit is padded!


    It's hard to tell because it's a strange angle. I think he looks effeminate because of the head to toe spandex, and also because he looks like my effeminate (and gay) friend Mike.



    Edit: Wait....this is the guy who played Jess on Gilmore Girls? No.... the pics don't look like him at all!

    I don't see "hotness" in any aspect of this guy or his outfit. In fact, it's a little embarassing to look at.

    Guys in tights.. bleh.
  • XyzXyz Posts: 685Registered Users
    Wow. I am really suprised by the votes. Keep 'em coming.
  • love yourself firstlove yourself first Posts: 5,398Registered Users
    I like his face a lot, so voted "great." I'd love to see what his body looks like when it's not encased in the girly tights and overall padding. :wink:

    he is not at all my type, but I can see how someone who likes that kind of look would find him hot.

    I think the difference is in the lower half of the body. Reeves had a natural build to his body with a bit more muscle definition in the top. This new guy looks like the HULK in the lower half, too much thigh muscle definition for my taste.

    He looks a little like Chris Noth's younger brother/cousin.... And I think that Chris Noth is really great looking.

    (for those who don't remember, Noth played "Mr. Big" in SATC......)

    Now you're taking me back to junior high! I used to LOVE PE.... And you're right, you could say that about anyone. But what I meant was, I don't like that pretty look like Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, this guy... and personally would NEVER date or marry someone with that look, but I can objectively see that they are attractive... know what I mean?

    Amneris,

    I knew what you meant - it just cracked me up when I saw it because I was like, "that could be the best PC answer I've ever seen about looks."

    I'm going to add it to my sig line, and I'll just say "refer to my sig line" when questions about different guys' looks come up! Thanks!!!!!

    I agree. The colors are the first thing I noticed...ugly.

    The guy is attractive. Not hot, though. He reminds me of Reeve a little.

    not at all.

    umm...no

    Do you think his costume is as nice or nicer than Reeve's?
    looks pretty close to Reeve's. but what's up w/ the black and red S?
    i don't like that.

    He has a "weak" looking face. Superman has more prominent and chiseled features.

    The suit looks like classic Superman to me. He looks, padded, however. Wrong choice IMO.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    Do you think he is hot?
    Absolutely NOT. He has that whole Tom Cruise girly-look going on.

    Do you think the costume is nice?
    Not at all. It just looks really odd.

    Do you think he looks like Christopher Reeve?
    Yes, only the guy in the picture is skinnier and looks a lot less "natural" in that outfit, if anyone can look natural dressed like that.

    Do you think his costume is as nice or nicer than Reeve's?
    It looks the same, his body is just worse. He needs to much artificial looking padding.

    Can a man in a catsuit with his undies on the outside, knee boots, and a cape ever look good? :nono:nono1.gif
