Default Re: Bryan Singer: Why 'Superman Returns' Didn't Work

SR isnt romantic in any form
Romantic in the aesthetic form, at least.
The romance between lois & superman which is one of the core aspects of the mythology is misguided and wrongly interpreted.
Circumstances didn't allow them to play their "traditional" romantic roles. Superman abruptly left her after sweeping her off her heels and with a child to boot. Plus, she wrote her Pulitzer prize winning article on "why the world doesn't need Superman". But there he was again, back from obscurity. In this circumstance, I see any (proper), and especially Donner's iteration of them (Superman & Lois) acting the same. In that respect, they weren't wrongly interpreted at all.
