1980.Throwing out what doesn't work Is totally In line with Bryan Singer's past works.
The problem with SR is that it didn't launch a fresh future for the Superman franchise. Instead, it added a child who would need to be addressed and included in future films, so it created obstacles and locked the franchise in a corner. That's why they are now doing a reboot Man of Steel.
They have to bear in mind what the state of the franchise will be at the end of DoFP. Superman Returns did it wrong in making it hard to move forwards, Star Trek did it absolutely right. First Class also left me wanting to see more, and I hope that DoFP will do the same and not just wrap up all the existing films for good.
