And anyone who wants to complain about Superman's new costume should go back and check out the pics of the crap that Tim Burton was trying to do.  When he was pitching his idea for a new Superman movie he created a plastic, light-up THING.  We should all just be thankful that Burton never got to make his movie.  He would've crapped on us and kicked us in the nuts.

You say that DaForce but a whole lot of the Superman character that is owned by the estate is still in there. The jumping buildings is being rewritten into continuity and in fact Grant Morrison the guy writing the freakin' thing has stated point blank in numerous interviews he's trying to take the character back to his Seigel and Schuster roots. They obviously aren't worried about your theory of the lawsuit as they are likely going to have to pay one way or the other and the comic book and quite possibly the movie are evidence of that. And have you even read the comic? If you haven't  how in the hell do you know it's stupid?

I think the new suit is great, in fact they should have done it years ago. It's slick and brings it up to date without taking away it's heroic nature and look. And Nolan has a lot of creative imput in the movie, he even got to hire this "hack" director as you say. I have faith in Christopher Nolan to deliver. Maybe that's just me.

Movies are primarily the director's creation and vision. It's just so stupid for people to keep trying to say this is Nolan's film. He's off doing his bat-turd and a cgi Zod anyone with a clear mind would agree that that has no sign of Nolan at all. Producer can be such a vague role and title, sometimes they have practically no input, sometimes they provide financing, sometimes they're attached in title only due to previous productions and so on.

 I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  The only stumble to me in Snyder's career is Sucker Punch.  And, that was one MAJOR stumble.  I hope he is faithful, at least in spirit, to the comics as he was in The Watchmen.

 BTW, what is this "rebooting" of DC comics?  Did they do away with all continuity and start at the beginning?

 As much as Clark Kent has been a beloved alter ego...maybe it is time for Superman to simply be Superman.  I always think of the SNL skit where the Rock was Clark Kent and everyone knew he was Supes. Amazing I can suspend disbelief that a man can fly (or, apparantly leap freally far) but I never have bought that the best journalist on the planet (Daily) can't figure out a simple costume change that involves glasses.  Maybe people would consider that sacriledge, but it isn't a change I'd mind.  It would make perfect sense for him to be the "man of steel" full itme.

@DaForce.........go back and watch "Dawn of the Dead" and "300" again and try to convince us that Zack Snyder is a "hack".  Dumbest comment on this thread...............so far.

 I understand what your saying Wise but this movie got the fast track because Nolan is acting as producer with Goyer writing the script already a proven success. And he hired Snyder that's a pretty big creative decision just to start. And that producer role doesn't always apply see Poltergiest with Hooper and Spielberg. Not saying that's going to happen just saying. I trust Zack Snyder but after seeing Sucker Punch for the first time the other day he needs someone to help him stay on task. That movie seemed to be all over the place. 

@InnerSanctum- DC just rebooted their entire line of comics. They call it a soft reboot but there are some really big changes. They are releasing all new 52 number ones and new titles over the entire month of september. This was really the first full week, so far they are good, the Superman is suprisingly good but we'll have to see where it goes. If we still had a comicscape they would probably have been discussing this.

Dont forget that Zod has worn giant armor in some stories. This could just be some sort of Kryptonian armor.

 @shac, yup I read Morrison's take in Action Comics #1....and promptly put it back on the shelf where it belonged. Instead, I bought the much superior (and less hackneyed) Detective Comics #1. 

@goirish, "Dawn of the Dead" a bad remake of a much superior movie. Dumbass running zombies even after rigor mortis sets in. As for "300", if you can't make a movie that has already been storyboarded for you (after all, that's what a comic book is, a gigantic storyboard), then you're a hack. See "Watchmen" for details. Out of the five movies Snyder has done for WB (remember that stupid owl movie he did?), only two movies made money. That's a 40 percent success rate. Good if you're movies cost less than 20 million to make. Not good if your movies typically cost 100-200 million each. Movie math says that a movie has to make three times its budget to break even, and Snyder's movies just don't do that kind of money. It's great that you think his movies are 'kewl' or 'stylish' or 'badass', but truth of the matter is that Snyder will be about as well remembered as Mark Steven Johnson in ten years.
