That's what I want the story to achieve, not the music. The music I just want to be complimentary, enjoyable and not overpowering - which if it's written by a competent composer like Zimmer, it will be.
While I fully get your point, I do feel that you may feel this way because you have no love for, and/or don't appreciate the Chris Reeve films (as you already stated you don't, many times.).
Just as Dick Donner stated in an interview... The first time he was sitting in-front of the big screen and heard the John Williams score while the names of the actors and staff were being shown (right before the movie started), he literally heard the words "SUPERMAN"!!! IMO John Williams score for Sups is the most powerful score I have EVER heard, very telling for the character who IS Superman.
The score is HUGE, The score manages the story, please remember that girly!
