Indeed, and the irony is that in some ways, one could argue that this film itself was argued to have been (or is) a rush job from the start as well given on how Warner Bros. needed to have a Superman film in production before 2012 was over due to the lawsuit that they had going on then.
It's only a matter of fortune that the story that Warner Bros. picked up from Goyer was seemingly a great one, and that we were able to get the level of talent in Crew and Cast alike.
