    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.

such as Supes having a kid, not to mention shaking up his whole relationship with Lois, amongst a few other minor points. It'll be interesting to see what the fanboys have to say about it on the messageboards after it comes out, that's for sure.

I don't think DC has any clue what the moviegoing public is willing to pay for, and i'm not sure the fans know what they want either. I really hate it for Brandon Routh that he didn't get another chance, because I think he'd have worked fine with whatever direction they wanted to go in, but it is what it is.
