Superman Returns costume worn by Brandon Routh...

I'm sure in the coming days and months there'll be lots of talk about Henry Cavill's new Superman suit in the forthcoming Man of Steel, but I still believe they got the iconic costume right for Brandon Routh in 2006's Superman Returns.

Being a huge comic book fan I personally prefer my superheroes in colourful capes and tights, and have no problems with them sporting what looks like their underwear over their leggings. The more fantastical the better if you ask me.

So Louise Mingenbach's reinterpretation of the classic Superman costume was a winner in my humble opinion and Brandon Routh did an admirable job of filling out those super-tights of DC Comics iconic hero.

I'd previously spied this original costume on display at the London Film Museum, but on a return visit on May 15, 2012 I was able to get a closer look thanks to the suit being in a different display case.

I particularly like the diamond weave of the fabric which gave the costume a much more textured and less 'shiny tights' look.

And if you're a super-fan, be sure to check out these original props from Superman and Superman II on display.

  1. The steel body of the cell rolex replica uk presents us the luxurious as well as delicate appearance. With the ornament of the diamond, sapphire very and steel, the trendy and extravagant style of Dior phone is more prominent. This hublot replica sale features sumptuous lambskin leather and a delicately gathered ruching details, not the same as the prior drawstring tote. Adding the great ruffle around the edges is actually chic. Two leather handles and double silver-plated chains make the whole audemars piguet replica more womanly and appealing. It is best to be safe than sorry. Cliché as it may sound; fake hublot never affects to have its waterproof condition tested at an interval of eighteen months essentially. This is something to consider when searching for one of the best Rolex watches.

  2. Miami in December - does it get better than this? The locals will agree, but perhaps not during Art Basel, where an estimated 100,000 or more extra people swarm in for the now international art show whose replica chanel watches . But I am not at Art Basel right now. I am at Bal Harbor - a ritzy shopping mall on the Northern part of the island where locals go to show off and tourists go to shop. Thierry Guetta (aka Mr. Brainwash) walks up to me with his trademark look that includes a hat and sunglasses. Purple paint has been cleverly, if not meticulously, sprayed to the left lens. His cool-guy black leather jacket is, of course, unscathed by bright colored acrylic paint, but the "I just left the studio" style continues on his jeans, where just enough paint has collected to offer an air of authenticity. Mr. Brainwash is looking very Hollywood today.

    People argue whether or not replica chanel j12 is a protégé or production of the street artist team known as Banksy, whose initial claim to fame arrived in 2010, when pop art fans experienced the film Exit Through The Gift Shop. Today, none of that matters. He is here to show off some images of Eva Longoria looking like his Madonna by way of Andy Warhol by way of Marilyn Monroe - a common theme for his stuff. Everyone from Spock to Michael Jackson has gotten this treatment. I'm waiting for him to do this for Jean-Claude Biver. Thierry has also just got all Jackson Pollack on a Hublot Big Bang UNICO 45 watch. I think it is technically out of warranty now - but that won't stop it from being sold at auction.
