He was making his own movie with his own vision, while paying respect to the comics. I think that Singer should have done the same, and hope that whoever does the sequel will keep that in mind.
Considering that the Donner movies are now influencing the Superman comics big time and they've had a huge impact on the Superman mythos I'd say that people shouldn't cut the s*** with the Donnerverse. Even 30 years later it is still a very relevant piece of Superman unlike the Burton/Schumaker Batman films which aren't even 20 years old.

Although with the reception the Dark Knight is getting, I can see DC Nolanizing the Batman comics in the near future just like they're Donnerizing the Superman comics.
