Debate of the Day: Thoughts on Our New Superheroes?


(click either to enlarge)

This has been a big week for the superhero genre, as the first official look has premiered for two upcoming heroes. We have Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel, and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, aka Catoman, in The Dark Knight Rises.

The question is easy, what do you think? Personally, I’m loving the Superman shot, even more so when you compare it with the first image we got out of Superman Returns which looks like Brandon Routh wearing underoos in comparison. Everyone loves that honeycomb pattern these days (just ask Spider-Man), but I think something like that is necessary to give it some texture. I’m not sure it needed to cover the “S” itself though. His hair seems a bit off, and he’s missing the signature S curl, but other than that, really no complaints to speak of and I’m really looking forward to seeing more from this.

Meanwhile Catwoman doesn’t quite seem like Catwoman at this stage, and you have to wonder if this is an actual costume or some sort of in between look before she gets suited up. It was said that the character would “look more like a thief” and also have goggles, but is that really ALL she’ll have? I’m worried that in Nolan’s quest for realism he might make her too ordinary looking, and ditch an actual costume for just some girl wearing stupid sunglasses. I also have a hunch that the word “Catwoman” will never actually be uttered in the film, the same way it wasn’t for Two-Face. But if this is as involved as her costume gets, I’m not to terribly enthused about it.

What do you think of both looks?
