How much more can the movie Superman costume cost? The boots look bad, like it's robotic feet. The neck crew is too wide open. Overall, it look cheap, feel like a $19.95 costume for Halloween.

That's what post-production is for.

$19.95 is the WB splurging!

That's what cinematography is for. The movie costumes look "off" as well in shots like these where the DP hasn't worked his magic.

Remember for those who missed the 1st season or missed episodes and want to get caught up for season 2, the CW will re-air the entire 20 episode 1st season beginning Monday. Set your DVRs.

"SUPERGIRL" SEASON ONE TO TAKE OVER The CW'S MONDAY NIGHTS STARTING August 1

Two Encore Episodes of "Supergirl" Will Air Each Monday Night Until The New Season of "Supergirl" Premieres on October 10

July 6, 2016 (Burbank, CA) - The CW Network announced today it will broadcast the entire first season of SUPERGIRL on Monday nights starting August 1, with two episodes each week until the new season of SUPERGIRL premieres on October 10 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT).



Read more at http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2...7Zl6gKC6bWY.99
And most importantly for those with CBS Supergirl season passes, delete those and re-set it with the new CW pass.

The costume is what I expected for the most part on a CW budget. How they've attached the cape looks a little unusual. That design seems to have been chosen with FX shots in mind.

Costume aside, I picture Superman being quite a bit larger, taller, bigger, etc. than Supergirl.

How many actors do you know who are taller than 6'4, which is Mehcad Brooks' height? How many people (non-NBA) do you know who are taller than that?

Pretty much my entire family. I've even got female cousins who're over 7 foot tall. I'm 6'2 and one of the shortest people in my family.

My daughter was over 3 foot tall when she was 15 months old. Though she's slowed down on growing, lol. She's now 3 years old (turned 3 earlier this month) and only up to 42 inches tall.

He just looks doofy and that costume is not doing him or the character justice...

Finally DC woke up and made a Mexican Superman! Kudos!

certainly better in the snapshots than the ultraphotoshopped one sheet.


and call me crazy but I kind of dig the hard look of the shoulder-cape situation going on there.

He still looks horrible. His face looks like it would fit more in a reenactment from "I (almost) got away with it" than as Supermam. True he does give off an Ash vibe in the face. Again, not suitable for Superman. And that's Jimmy Olsen? Good lord the TV show must suck. At least Supergirl looks the part.

Generalize much? Olsen's reimagining has turned out as one of the better aspects of the show. However, tossing in a 5' Superman next to him looks silly. The Superman casting is the problem here, not Olsen.

I hate to be that guy, but Hoechlin isn't exactly Hobbit size. He's 6 feet tall.

But he is tied with Dean Cain as the shortest of all the Supermans. Current movie Superman Cavill is 6-1

Or you know, you could actually try watching the show instead of judging off of production photos. It's actually quite decent and honors the characters legacy quite well.

"Not suitable for Superman"

I don't have much problem with the casting. He actually would have been a far better choice for Superboy or Mon-El, but that ship has sailed.

Without CBS's "guidance" over Supergirl I expect a slight change in tone on the CW.

Flockhart's reduced schedule is official. Damn. Too bad. That relationship was the element of the show working the best by the end of the year.
