    I get there is a fine line between deviating from the character so much that it makes him unrecognizable, however, I think it's boring to see the same version of the character over and over telling the same story over and over. It's one of the big reasons why Superman Returns failed. They were trying to REMAKE the Donner films. People have already seen that version int the time that it was meant for, and done better. I don't need a Christopher Reeve rehash. If I did I'd stay home and watch it on the DVD for the umpteenth time.

I think people might like the same Superman with different stories. The problem with the movies is they've all been the same. Superman had Luthor. Superman II had Zod (and Luthor). Superman III had Robert Vaughn essentially playing another Luthor. Superman IV had Luthor and basically another Zod (villain with Superman's powers). Returns had Luthor. And Man of Steel had Zod. And 3 of those 6 movies spent a lot of time on his origins.

How about the same old Superman we like but in a different story? Different villain? Fight Brainiac in space. Go into the bottle city of Kandor. Travel to the 31st century. Mongul and Warworld. Something. There's a million Superman comics to base stories on, for some reason they keep recycling the same two.

Don't disagree with that... except I would say making tweaks to Superman would probably be necessary as times have changed as well.
