What’s with the neckline?

Curious about the new Superman costume for Superman Returns? See this article. Apparently lots of the fanboys are up in arms. Knowing that, I was expecting something truly atrocious, but it’s not that bad, really. I agree that the neckline (and therefore the cloak attachment) are wrong, though.

I was glad to see that they didn’t do the extreme fake muscles thing a la the Batman movies. I really really hate that. I hate it when just about any superhero is drawn with freaky musculature. I mean, if you have superpowers, especially Superman’s superpowers, exactly why would you spend all your time in the gym trying to perfect the six pack? It doesn’t make sense.

Anyway, the new costume has a long cape, which I like. Capes also make no sense, but I like them anyway.
