Bottom line is this. Man of Steel is a modern film that won't have one foot stuck in 1978. The true issue I have with Superman Returns is the uninteresting way it explored it's concept. Instead of Superman returning and showing the world that his ideals still have a place, Singer just focused on two characters who displayed no romantic chemistry.

I think I wouldn't have minded the Donner elements if I liked the story around them. Star Trek 2009 proves that you can pay homage to the past while engaging the audience.

If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping sauce — Szechuan sauce, Morty.
