Superman's New Costume

The blue's all wrong, guys.

Getting the blue right is the hardest part of costuming Superman. You can do whatever red or gold you please, but if you make the blue too light or too pastel he looks, well, gayer than he does already. And Bryan Singer (who is gay, yes, but who is pretty damn careful about getting the main points of a superhero film right) is already going wrong on this baby-blue crap.

The best blue for the Big Blue Boy Scout was in the 70's Superman films, and even that blue looked wrong from time to time. But that was the closest, so just use that, Singer. There's no need to reinvent the wheel.

If you want a different blue, go a little darker and richer. A little. Not that horrid navy Dean Cain wore. The muscles won't show up as well, I'm guessing, but at least Superman won't look like hospital orderly wearing inappropriately tight scrubs.

And lose the glossy shine on the "S" badge, dummies. Do I have to tell you everything?

Finn McCool and KenJ May Have Been Right Update: This other picture, now on Drudge, is closer to the mark, I think:

Well, all right then. That looks kinda good. Not exactly as I envisioned it, but I guess if I just wanted to envision it I wouldn't have to pay $11.00 to see a stupid movie.
