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

Well, that’s a somewhat problematic conclusion to draw… as the “consummation act” in SII appears to have happened around 1978-80 while SR (explicitly – the date is shown on the front page of the DP) takes place in 2006. Jason would be over 25 years old.
Sliding timeline.

Iron Man 2 takes place six months after Iron Man. Does Iron Man 2 take place in November 2008? No.

Does the Dark Knight take place in December 2005?

Alan Moore on comics:

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
