A Better Look at the New ‘Man of Steel’ Costume

Chubtoad reporting….

So there have been questions regarding the suit for the upcoming Superman movie starring Henry Cavill, who is playing the ‘Man of Steel’, as to whether or not it has the traditional elements or if they totally redesigning the costume.  We have had a few set stills released, but not a good, clear look at the costume.  Well, here is a set pic released as Cavill walks around between takes.

As you can see, he does not have the traditional red trunks, nor yellow belt.  They made some changes to the sides of the torso that seems to pull in the costume.  Is he trying to hide super love handles?  He is sans cape in this still, but you can see the velcro lining the top of the suit where it connects.  Now I don’t hate this suit, but I still don’t know where I land on the redesign yet.  Many of you out there have varying opinions on this.  What are your thoughts?

Noooooooooo George Lucas!

Chubtoad here…

So Lucas has done it again!  He has made changes for the Blu Ray editions of Star Wars.  Why must he constantly “tweak'” the Star Wars films?  We loved the original trilogy as it was George!  So now at the end of ‘Return of the Jedi’, Lucas has altered the scene where Vader throws the Emperor over the railing with Vader screaming NOOOOO!

Really George?!?  Really?

Please George… We beg you….STOP SCREWING WITH THE THINGS WE LOVE!

Also, it is rumored that the Ewoks eyes now blink in ‘Return’ as well as this change below of Ben Kenobi’s Krayt Dragon cry to scare off the Sand People in ‘New Hope’:

Screenwriter wants MODOK in Captain America 2

Chubtoad here.

We learned recently that the screenwriters from Captain America Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus expressed that they want to feature the Falcon and Sharon carter in the sequel to this summer’s ‘First Avenger’ hit.  Now we can also add to that wish list of plot devices the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing (MODOK).

Christopher Markus tells Hero Complex; “I love MODOK and I think you could make a terrifying movie with MODOK but nobody seems to be on my side at the momentum,”

It does not seem likely that MODOK, who is one of Caps weirdest enemies, would make an appearance rather than say the Falcon.  However, it would be cool to see the giant-headed character hovering around leading AIM against Cap and Agent 13 on the big screen.

Markus also mentioned that he would like Peter Dinklage from ‘Game of Thrones’ to play MODOK.

“I will win you over to Peter Dinklage as MODOK,” he says. “If he came around the corner and you saw him floating there you would be terrified. It would be amazing.”

If this were to happen it would be amazing!

Dan Aykroyd says ‘Ghostbusters 3’ officially a GO!

Chubtoad here…

The man behind the Ghostbusters franchise, Dan Aykroyd says that the third installment will begin filming this spring whether or not Bill Murray signs on or not.

“Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray,” Aykroyd told Dennis Miller on his radio show. “That is our hope. We have an excellent script.” But while he admits, “Billy was absolutely the lead and contributed to it in a massive way,” Aykroyd points out, “The concept is much larger than any individual role.”

In the next movie, Aykroyd says, “We get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood.”

 

And for no reason here is a hot chick in a Ghostbusting uniform:

We also get a look at Faora and a MoCaP suited Michael Shannon as Zod.
