However there also is the canon that Kryptonite is not like a "hot knife" to butter slicing through Superman. Rather it immediately incapacitates Superman making it physically impossible for him to act, but it does not rob him of his powers. His active abilities are neutralized, but his passive abilities(invulnerability) still protect him. Prolonged exposure kills him.

Always faster........Why would a Kryptonite bullet slow him down? He hears the gun firing, turns to see a glowing green bullet and moves out of it's path micro seconds after the bullet has left the gun. If he chooses to evade, it never even gets close.

The other factor to consider is the amount of Kryptonite that is available. It should be extremely rare, making it impossible to fabricate a Kryptonite net let alone a Kryptonite arsenal.
Fair enough. Well I guess it depends on what take they have on Kryptonite and it's effects on Superman. If they go the route of a kryptonite weapon being able to affect him, we may see kryptonite weapons.

All i'm saying is that it could happen.

They have called it MAN OF STEEL... i think they plan on having him be pretty impenetrable.

I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.

"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
