    The reason superhero movies can have superior sequels is because sometimes origin movies just don't work. I don't want to see Superman's origin for the 100th time.


I dont know about this. Most superheroes have a pretty compelling, definitive origin story. After that theres a bunch of random storylines that to be brutally honest probably arent worthy of the big screen treatment. The alternative is that the filmmakers create something from scratch which is a real crapshoot. And to be honest i cant think of amny superhero sequels that were notably superior to the original movie. I certainly dont think its a general rule. The only problem with origin movies is that they tend to hit the same notes such that when you have a lot of superhero movies being made at the same time they can all blend into one in the casual viewers mind.

    I'm not crazy about the casting (I liked Routh). I'm worried the Dark Knight-ish approach could backfire on a character like Superman. And then there's Zod. Haven't we been here?


I dont mind Zod. Its a little easier on the suspension of disbelief to bring in a threat that shares the same origins rather than coming up with some totally different superpowered creature, at least for a first movie. And i think theres a lot of ifferent ways they could go with another Kryptonian who sees things differently than Kal does.

    I'll still see it and try to be optimistic, but nothing about this movie sounds promising so far.


Im a little worried about Snyder but i think the casting has been great. And i like the idea that the movie might try to incorporate a lot from Birthright which I thought was very well done.
