I prefer this variant of the costume.

So needless to say I'm not happy with the costume.

 

The actress looks too old as well. I've always thought of Supergirl as being in her late teens, at least to start with. She looks about 10 years older than that.

The costume is too dark for a member of the "Super-" family. I could understand grittier/stealthy heroes going for more umbral wear, but not someone who explicitly wants to be a symbol of courage, hope, and self-betterment.

 

Boo, Hollywood!

 

 

(Then again "quantity over quality" is the primary way of thinking with superhero film/television these days.)

I seriously think this version would border on child porn if it were done live action.

 

Miss Benoist successfully played a high schooler on Glee so I'm pretty sure she could pull off young. For a while. Before the inevitable facelifts and implants take their toll. This is Hollywood, after all.

She looks like Batman's little sister dressed by the Joker to make Supes angry ... nah, I don't like theses "subdued" colors at all.

I want bright colors.

 

I'm with you that i dislike the subdued colours ala Man of Steel. However for practical reasons can see why a person would use them with a superhero costume. Namely after a hard day of superheroing all that dust, dirt, blood, grime etc, the subdued colours would hide it better.

If a film emulates comics enough, those little details could be overlooked or even downplayed if and when need be :winkgrin:.

Don't even enter the territory of "realism" - we speak about a bulletproof girl that is super-strong, can fly and can look thru wall (with and without superhot eye-beams) because she hails from an exploded planet.

 

If you are capable of excepting that then there is no reason not to accept that she wears a stainless, super-bright dress that can get dusty but *OHMYGAWD* does not even stain when some jerk spills red wine on it at a party.

 

That is why this GIRL is SUPER! :rockon:

I agree, they should be more willing to push the boundaries a bit in terms of visuals than going with the "this looks realistic" stuff.  The bright, amazing colors and designs are part of the genre, and they're a uniform of sorts: when you see that costume, and its hard to miss, you know something wonderful is happening.  Its like Mr Incredible picking up his car in front of the little boy on the tricycle.  Don't shy away from that.

I dunno about that. That comic book costume looks no different to me than any high school cheerleader outfit in the country. Add to that the fact that this particular Supergirl is in her mid-20s--it wouldn't be child porn even if she flew around naked.

 

The whole muted color palette for superhero costumes thing has just got to go. It is tedious in its ubiquitousness, disappointing in its creative sterility, and dismissive of its genre roots.

Just like the comics these days, sadly. (IMO, of course)
