I take the “radical” view that superheroes aren’t a deep well of interesting stories . With any luck, a decent movie trilogy is possible. And typically, the 1st/origin film is the best because it contains the most clearly defined arc. So as a relaunch/reboot, MOS’s best chance of success was to revisit the origin.

And by no means is this a bad thing. The story of Hamlet, for example, keeps getting retold too.
