Seems fans are split over the Superman costume design for Season 2 of “Supergirl”. 28% don’t like it, but 26% do like it. Another 23% think it’s rather average.

It’s mainly the odd placement of the cape attachment that’s hurting it IMO. Everything else is basically alright at least within the confines of trunks being currently verboten and gobs of visible seams being apparently mandatory as far as live-action superhero costumes go. (Though using that to give him subtle gauntlets rather than actual ones is an interesting touch.) Kinda wish the belt had a round buckle but at least they didn’t do the visually redundant thing of just repeating the shield when he’s already got it on his chest. At first I was a little put off by the… Read more »

I’ve read a few comments on here saying the trunks are forbidden by mandate across the board. Is this really true I wonder?

The “S” in Hoechlin’s suit is not the Donner movie one. I is the official design with a (very) little change: The one John Byrne used in his Man of Steel minieries. Supergirl also uses the official emblem but the change is at the end of the “S” instead of the beggining.
