Just post the link MIke.
Saw the pic earlier, and while he looks a bit thin, I reckon it's pretty good.

looks stupid.  always does when brought into real world.  logo on chest should be bigger.  briefs are tiny, and ingeneral plain and boring.  what ever happened to taking a bit of artistic licence with super hero costumes?

let's face it, conexus just hit the nail on the head in 3 words.  'compare and contrast'.  does anyone not think christopher reeve was the perfect superman???  how can you live up to that, especially with a half assed attempt to update the costume.  he will be judged against christopher reeves and inevitably fall short.

Routh looks great as Clark Kent but based on that photo, and the upward angle, he lacks the masculine look Reeve brought to the role. He looks like some young guy pretending to be Superman rather than Superman, if you get my drift.

I doubt Routh will be as good as Reeve but you never know.

Actually I was just talking about it costume wise, but you're point is valid as well

So we've seen this photo of a guy at a fancy dress party, when will we see Brandon Routh as Superman?:)

"I always had the general idea of the suit. However, when the conceptual art was evolving around the same time that I cast Brandon, I privately had paintings rendered with Brandon's face, which certainly brought it to life," Bryan Singer told USA Today.
