As you can clearly see, continually blaming the lack of success on the film being 'too heavy' for an audience expecting a blockbuster summer movie.
My interpretation of 'too heavy' = too intelligent, too deep, too thought provoking...
But it's NOT
thought provoking IMO.
Superman: Don't be afraid.
Lois: I'm not. Helicopters, danger, go, go, go! Then we'll talk.
