Thoughts on Henry Cavill's Superman Costume

I came across this article on World Of It had super close up shots of Henry Cavill in his Superman costume. I ganked a couple images so I could talk about them here.


I may not be the biggest Superman fan around but I still have a lot of nerd rage within me about this costume.

I guess the most glaring change would be the lack of the red underoos. Instead, they replaced it with an oversized cup and those alien-looking decals on the side of the costume. I've never really seen a Superman costume with that kind of design element. Maybe because it simply isn't as iconic as the red briefs.

Conan the Barbarian (2011)

Let me just say this up front: I don’t really know squat about Conan.

My experience with the character is mostly from the Arnold Schwarzenegger movies in the 1980’s and from Frank Frazetta’s artwork for the Robert E. Howard books. I remember having one Conan book in my library and I never got through the whole thing. This was back in elementary when I had the attention span of a dust mite. Choose Your Own Adventure was more my speed. Probably the only reason I owned it was the girl in a fur bikini on the cover.

Despite my lack of familiarity with the source material, I am a fan of the barbarian genre. Back during the 80’s, barbarian movies were all the rage. There were impossibly silly examples like The Barbarians, a movie about barbarian brothers with oiled muscles and mullets, and more mainstream stuff like The Beastmaster (ok, maybe not really mainstream). 1982’s Conan the Barbarian was the mother of all of them and still one of the best. 1984’s sequel, Conan the Destroyer, while much dumber, was still entertaining for a young kid. It didn’t hurt that one of the rules of barbarian movies is that you MUST have either kick ass warrior women, or scantily clad demon priestesses. The young Olivia D’Abo fell under the second category. RAWR.

This year’s Conan re-boot starring the newest Pseudo- Schwarzenegger, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Stargate: Atlantis) sticks to the same formula as the 80’s movies did but somehow it doesn’t feel nearly as fun.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Trailer

Ghost Rider has been getting some love lately - Marvel Universe figure, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 inclusion and a new seemingly more bad ass movie. Here's the trailer, folks.

Who knows when it'll be taken down or if it will be, because Taylor did say the trailer was exclusive to iTunes. That ain't on iTunes. Nicolas Cage is still a little too old to play Johnny Blaze, but goddamn that bike looks leagues better than the uber stylized one in Ghost Rider.
