I'm actually happy with the look of the guy they chose. The color of his suit really bothered me at first (too dark), but now that I've seen it in motion a few times, it's no big deal.
I'm really excited about this movie. I'm a total Superman freak. Hell, I'm renting old Lois and Clark episodes from Netflix right now, that's how crazy I am about it.
Unfortunately, everytime I get really worked up about a new movie, I'm let down. So I'm really trying to temper my anticipation with a little reality.
