      Time to bury the last vestige of the Donner movies and move on, I say. I'd like to see what other talented composers could come up with.

    Yep yep. I love the Donner theme. It will always be synonymous with Superman. But it's time to move on and find something new. It -- or motifs from it -- has been used in five Superman movies, a Supergirl movie, "Smallville" and a slew of other projects official and unofficial. Just like it is set apart from the equally synonymous "Adventures of Superman" theme, the next Superman itteration needs a new take, as well.

    In fact, I'll take it a step farther and say everything unique from the Reeve movie needs to be left gracefully in the past. The score. The Christopher Reeve lookalike Superman. The ice crystal Krypton. "Kneel before Zod." All of it.

    Stay true... but do something new or go home.

As much as I love all that stuff I have to agree with you. If I hear the Williams' music or see the ice crystal fortress it will instantly take me back to the Christopher Reeve Superman movies and then I'll be complaining about how they're not doing as good of a job.

The best thing they can do is get me into a movie where I'm so absorbed in it that I'm not even thinking about or comparing it to the Superman movies of the past. (12.345.67.89)
