Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to see the footage shown at the panel. However nerds around the Internet are claiming that the suit in action is actually pretty awesome and it looks great. Honestly the photo doesn’t exactly sell me on the costume.
It’s too reminiscent of the old cheesy comic book movie costumes, but that doesn’t mean it lacks a certain charm. I’m sure seeing the suit in action (and not just a slightly blurry photo) is a totally different experience. So to all of the fanboys who will immediately cry foul at the new look, be sure you see the footage before casting your final judgements.
I’m just glad to finally see something coming out of this film, and I really hope to see more as filming continues.
