It isn't simply about who created the story. It is more about how many react to this being in anyway similar to Donner's film/s. MoS was being touted as something completely brand new, that wouldn't touch the same material.
I still remember the reaction to the story being an origin and then the rumor that Zod would be the villain. Put me of discussing this film for a long time.
