I hope he doesn't repeat what he did on Superman Returns, because if DOFP turned out to be a not-so-great movie because of trying to ignore the bad films and trying to make the movie a homage sequel to the first two movies then it would be like, he didn't learn anything from the mistake that he did with Superman Returns.
I think if the 2006 Superman film was a reboot, it would have been more successful. People wouldn't be confused and have a reaction like "what? is this a sequel for Superman II, a movie that was released more than 20 years ago?". It would have given the movie a clean slate.
