Tom Hiddleston spoke with MTV and updated the current status of Thor 2, which is due in theaters July 26, 2013. Hiddleston said that a director is currently not attached to the sequel but that Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk’s name was mentioned as a potential candidate. Thor 2 is expected to begin filming next spring.

The old suit looked great, this one does not !
David Bowie Labyrinth approves
NEEDS THE RED "SHOTRTS!!!!"
I saw the Christopher Reeves Superman movie on TV a few weeks ago. I believe that this is the model that Superman should be based on. . Reeves projected Superman's goodness, mystery and innocence.
The new actor looks good. The costume sucks. It looks like he should be a member of the X-men. I don't need to see his "package." Superman is an iconic character. He doesn't have to be updated to change with the times. Go back to Reeves costume. He needs his cape back. Superman is a role model for kids. Would you dress your 6-year old in this?
I would also like to see the filmakers bring back "Truth, Justice and the American Way." As Superman is a symbol of good, America should be a symbol for good also.
Love the Superman outfit! He looks BA!
There's some eye candy, let's see the butt before you add the red pants.
The hair needs to be fixed a bit... maybe not that sharp of a part? There needs to some kind of red in the mid-section... it can be subtle to blend in with the already somewhat alien looking suit.
I also like the suit design, as Kal-El is an alien and it helps us to remember that. It's understood that the costume was originally sewn by his mother from what was with him in the ship, but why couldn't it have that alien texture? Perhaps blankets coupled with a liner from the spacecraft that served as insulation and protective armor -alien tech(his powers are derived from the yellow sun, and his parents would've wanted him protected) . Although his body serves as the armor I think slight variations could be a nice touch to modernize an icon
Love the Super Man outfit! He looks BA!
Nope!! Really don't like the new look. It's like a cross between the black X-men suits and Superman. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the red briefs and blue uniform. Not to mention the blue is the wrong shade. And what's with the chainmail look? He's not Captain America. His outfit has always looked like nothing more than cloth. Superman's "body" is his armor, not the uniform.
OK understood, but how does any of us out here know what they are doing? It was never stated in the article as to where they were going with the story. So we really can't be sure what direction they are gonna go then. Hopefully it is forward!
The idea behind Supes' costume is that Clark made it himself. This is how it's been from the beginning. Are we supposed to believe that Clark has these kinds of mad sewing skills?
We're talking about SUPERMAN here :) He's not just a regular man, he's a "SUPER" man. He's like "The Most Interesting Man In The World" from those Dos Equis commercials, but times 100! I wouldn't put sewing past him. Besides, he did grow up on a farm and was raised by a really old mother.
Almost there; they only need to add a belt to match 52 JLA #1's new Superman costume.
All comments aside, I think the suit works OK, but it could use a belt though.
I'm wondering if they are gonna develop the part of the story with Superman's son. We all saw it when he threw the piano at the villain attacking his mother Lois Lane, so we know he has his dad's strength. Does he have his dad's other powers too? It would be cool to see them go somewhere with with that also.
nope. This movie disregards 'Superman returns'. It is a reboot.or rather an interquel.
How do you know that? The article says nothing along those lines. BTW what is an interquel?
Interquel?: When there are already two or more completed works, an interquel can portray events which happen between them.
AT least it stall has long sleeves! On NY Times' website in an article about the super hero reboot superman looked like he was wearing a read cape, a superman t-shirt (albeit entirely filled out with Superman's build) jeans and a pair of work boots!
Oops, make that a "red" cape.
TO: Truth teller,
Superman is not a marvel creation. He is from the DC universe. But I too give Stan Lee credit for making comic life what it is today.
I don't like it. It looks like a spin off of a spiderman outfit with a Superman emblem and a cape. Mess with the story... Mess with the actors who portray the character...but don't ever mess with the icon or stature of the suit
I just hope the story line is good!
I have read all the posted comments, and I know my opinion is just.... my opinion. But.... The red briefs are not needed. But a belt is. someone said earlier about batman not wearing the blue trunks anymore. True... but the belt is still there to breakup the costume. I think if they add a belt and lighten the color to a little more blue and less gray it will look great. As far as the actor..... definitly some extra embellishing going on with the body suit. the suit is to thick to allow us to see the actors true musculature.... not to mention the cod piece. As far as the looks go good looking actors are a dime a dozen. I don't care what superman looks like as long as.... he stands for TRUTH, JUSTICE, AND THE AMERICAN WAY. :-)
I completely agree. I'm suspicious about this suit redesign. When they work too hard on the eye candy, sometimes it means the story and characterization are weak. Remind me why they didn't use the same actor in this movie as in "Superman Returns?" He projected the perfect blend of authority, decency, strength and vulnerability. I believed he was Superman.
