Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics [Blu-ray]
THE JOKER, LEX LUTHOR, CATWOMAN, DOOMSDAY, BANE. What makes them so thrillingly watchable? So terribly wonderful? So extremely vital to our super heroes and their worlds? This new feature-length documentary explores these questions across seven decades of DC Comics' hallowed Rogues' Gallery of infamous evildoers.
Here's what they had to say about the Superman costume from "Superman Returns".
On the bright side, the creators of the 2006 Superman remake wisely resisted the urge to drop the Man of Steel into a made-of-steel, chiseled suit carved to look like a cover of Men's Health. Here, Superman looks like he might actually be a journalist in disguise. They also deserve credit for keeping Superman in mostly patriotic colors. Superman may be a little too "truth, justice and the American Way" for some people, but we're talking about Superman, here. He's gotta be him, and one-notch-shy of actually wearing a flag always made sense for this farm boy. This leads to our one complaint: What up with the burgundy boots and cape? Red states yield red capes; burgundy is for wine drinkers.
