Anyway, I saw the movie this afternoon and absolutely loved it. I noticed many similarities with Smallville.
Yeah, I loved the movie too, and I wonder if its because of the Smallville similarities. But he didn't fly in the Donner film either until he went to the Fortress for seven years and came out with the suit. That's why I never understood the whole opposition to the "Flights and Tights" rule. I also think they did a good job explaining why Clark couldn't fly on the show.
But the biggest thing to me was him meeting Lois before even becoming Superman.
