I still maintain that the Strick script is a mess. That may not be Strick’s fault - blame Jon Peters, blame studio execs with merchandizing $ in their eyes. And maybe Burton could have transformed and rehabilitated it. But the script, itself, is painful to read.

Akiva Goldsman co-wrote Batman Forever and was the sole writer on Batman and Robin. But he went on to better things - including earning an Oscar for A Beautiful Mind. I have no doubt that Strick is talented. But you can’t tell that from his Superman Lives effort.
