 If the multi-color suit he is speaking of and wearing, it is a full CGI suit. I have just read now that a new Superman suit would be made (of course, take that with a grain of salt.) 

What is with this whole this isn't your Father's Man of Steel talk? Without your "Father's" Man of Steel, there would be NO Man of Steel. Show respect to the character. If you want Superman to be something he is not, then create your own dang Superhero.

Seriously, is Michael Shannon stoned?

Well said Leets, Superman has survived for over seventy years for a reason, the cosmetic changes never last long, and we always come back to the big old boyscout that we all know and love...

And yes, even though growing up I was never a huge superman fan, I always thought he was waaay to powerful for a hero, but that said, he is who he is...

I just looked up the Jim Lee Zod also and I really hope that is why it's CGI it looks badass.

 I too looked it up just now and saw it for the first time... loved the spiky armour! If thats anything to go by, bring it on.

Leets & Bunyon, easy there! I've enjoyed Superman since, well even before I could read the comics and have seen every movie and TV incarnation at some point. I love the character. As far as I'm concerned he is THE Superhero above all others.

All I was saying in my "not your father's Man of Steel" is that Snyder and Nolan obviously intend to make this movie version completely different than any before it. Is this right? Will it work? I don't know. I wait for the first trailer with bated breath like every other fan.

I know I like the basic plot that's been reported. Starting with him as a young man trying to figure out who and what he is and what he should do hasn't been done in the movies. It was kind of done with Smallville and Lois & Clark. But this approach will make it stand apart from the Donner movies. The costume changes? Again I don't know if I'm comfortable with it but I'll have to wait and see.

Now, I ask my question again: What is different about the origin/story for  Lee's armored Zod? It's obvious he is,uh....not your father's Zod :)

 Nope, Moss.  Big boy pants are in place.  I'm just tired of people coming on here and commenting on how much better (insert genre news site name here) is than Mania.  No one is twisting your arm to come here and read the news.  Well, maybe Jarrod is, but I doubt it.  So quit crapping on the site and contribute something to the discussion (which I am now guilty of not doing, sorry).

Now, on topic ... if they are going with the Jim Lee Zod armor I believe CGI will be the way to go to keep it from looking too ... tooo .... Power Ranger villain-like.  I think that's the description I'm looking for.

 Monkeyfoot, if you like the direction of this movie I think you would enjoy the relaunched Superman comics. Especially Grant Morrison's Action Comics. Got the first issue yesterday along with the other first set of DC New 52. I would bet my life savings that, at least for the most part, that the story in the comics will be reflected in the film. I don't know which idea came first but the movie is even using the same costume from the comics. It's all about Clark just getting to metropolis and learning to use his powers, he can't fly yet, he can you know jump buildings in a single bound, and so far he is reckless but it's done in a very interesting way. 

The Zod costume is from Brian Azzerello and Jim Lee's run on Superman and I don't think it symbolizes much other than he was a warlord in Metropia a paradise created inside the phantom zone. I think the costume was suppose to reflect his rule over Metropia althought I don't remember the story being very good and the reviews I've looked at online seem to confirm that. But the artwork is great and that Zod costume is awsome. I think people will see Zod differently after this film.

 *sigh* The change in Supes suit has more to do with the lawsuit Warner Bros. lost against the Siegel and Shuster estates more than anything else. That's also the reason why the suit has changed in the 'new' comics currently coming out, and the 'revamp' of most of the DC universe history. Instead of paying the money they owe those estates and working with those estates, WB decided to change the characters instead. Same goes for any new movies. As for the the Supes not flying theory, well, since WB actually owns that super power (it was created after Shuster and Siegel weren't on the book anymore), I'm fairly sure this Supes will be flying and not leaping like the stupid reboot comics have him doing.

So WB brings in a hack director that's big on style, short on substance, and is good at creating cliches that are burned out long before they even make their first appearance on screen. Add pulling one of your better actors out of the mix just to play a CGI dummy for a concept that was even stupid in the comics, is priceless. The more I see and hear of this turkey-in-the-making, the more convinced I am that this will more than likely be Synder's last movie with WB.

I just hope that Amy Adams' ass will have a significant role in the film.  Maybe it should wear the cape instead of Superman.
