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.
It would have had to have been a very different film if it was a reboot, I think. I went in thinking it was a whole new film with a couple of nods to the old movies so I was very confused as to how Lois got pregnant considering she didn't seem to even LIKE Clark or Superman let alone know they were the same person.... and if it was a sequel to SII, didn't she lose her memory of everything with the SuperKiss? So how would she remember sleeping with Superman but conveniently forgetting the part where he told her who he was.... aughh that movie.
