Just call is SUPERMAN BEGINS, get a whole new set of cast and creators and I think people would catch on. No more homages, no more crystals, no more land obsessed villains, no more Reeves impersonations. A fresh take is what's needed. Burton didn't keep the Bat-Shark-Repellent and Nolan didn't keep the camp. We need new and continuity free for the next generation, because "oh well this takes place after the Donner films from the 70s and 80s, but really after part II because we don't like part III and IV and we're going to ignore that" is more confusing than a SUPERMAN BEGINS film could ever be.
I agree. I think they could easily do a Superman Begins reboot in the next few years and people would accept it pretty easily. Marvel did it with the Hulk franchise and no one batted an eyelash.
I would love to see a Superman Begins movie that totally got away from the Donnerverse. The Donner films were great for their time, but it's time for something new.
