Whoa whoa whoa. Superman may have lost his red panties, but as shown by Henry Cavill on the streets of Chicago, he’s gained…a giant package.
Unlike poor Brandon Routh who has to worry in every shot about showing too much bulge-factor, this Superman is not afraid of unleashing little Kal-El on the world. Director Zack Snyder was not afraid to show lots of man meat in 300 and WATCHMEN, and he’s continuing this refreshing trend in the new Superman movie. No wonder Lois Lane is intrigued by the Man of Steel.
Shades of Citizen Steele!
Maybe this new DC is going to be awesome after all.
