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.
Iíll go out and Iíll find some more of that Mulan Szechuan teriyaki dipping sauce, Morty. Because thatís what this is all about, Morty. Thatís my one-armed-man. Iím not driven by avenging my dead family, Morty. That was fake! Iím driven by finding that McNugget sauce. I want that McNugget sauce, Morty. Thatís my series arc. If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping sauce ó Szechuan sauce, Morty.
