How is "Superman, man of steel" translated to Russian? "Stalin"?
Stalin doesn't literally mean "man of steel". It's the word for steel plus the standard last name suffix. So, more like "Steelson" or the (actual) German surname Stahlman.
"Man of steel" would be "chelovek iz stali", pretty much word for word except "iz" is more like "from" or "out of".
Is Superman: Man of Steel really going to come out in 2011, or is there a chance it will fall through?
Last I heard it fell through, and any project they do will be a reboot with no official ties to Returns (and hopefully no ties to the 80's franchise)
If it does not happen before 2011, certain rights will revert to the Families of the creators, and we may never see another Superman film (just as the rights of 'Superboy' are tied up and the final 3 seasons have yet to see DVD release)
the original plan was for a 3 film franchise for 06,08,10 except that the fan reviews were less than stellar
this was partially because it was tied to the 80's films which operated before 2 ret-cons in the comics, not to mention the Superboy, Lois & Clark, and Smallville TV series, all of which established different takes on the Superman Mythos
For Man of Steel (still the working title), they need to establish it as a stand alone film/franchise builder, and borrow the things that have worked from all previous endeavors
What material is superman costume in the new movie; The Man of Steel?
According to me they could be using the same fabric or material used in swim wears. I observed the textural effect as on the costumes of Super man and Spider man on some of the swim suits. You may check the swim suits from Speedo to see it yourselves. I might be wrong but a costume made of such material would make sense because they are used by athletes and allows full body movement and air flow to keep their body breathing.
