Here is Henry Cavill as Superman.
Notice that it’s missing what people who think they are being clever like to call “underwear”. Yes, the iconic red shorts on the outside are gone, for reasons very unclear to me.
Now look. I know that movie producers fuck with comic character’s costumes all the time. That’s understandable, as some of them just don’t look even remotely good on the big screen without adjustments. But, well, this is Superman. We all know what Superman’s costume is supposed to look like and without the red shorts it just… doesn’t… work!
The really annoying thing is that we know for a fact that Superman’s comic costume can work on the big screen on a real person. Consider this stalwart fellow.
Don’t tell me that doesn’t work.
Superman’s costume which, remember, according to the cannon was made by his adopted human mother, should have the red shorts. Without those, it just looks bizarre.
