Not knocking that. Its fine. But you guys need to put down the Kool-Aid. This ain't a reinvention of the wheel.
Of course some of the main characteristics of Superman is there like the origin, and yes, Zod is obviously a retread. But they're still adding a lot of new details and angles (big or small) to what we've seen before onscreen. That's what I was going for in response to dark_b.
