Default Re: All Things Superman: An Open Discussion - - - - - - - - - Part 18

I don't know what you mean by overdone. I just thought they took general concepts that are known to have deep emotional resonance and used them. I never felt like anything was shoved down my throat or that I was being beaten over the head. I'm not sure why it matters one way or another?

I mean, sure, I don't want to see a movie with exactly the same concepts as the Donner films. I want to see something new. If that's all the point is, then I agree. But many Superman stories have messianic / savior sorts of themes, because he's that kind of relentlessly good self-sacrificing sort of character. That's just who he is. It is just classic archetypes.
