Well like you said, we'll just have to agree to disagree on that, because while I loved MoS since I've been dying to see a Superman that wasn't beholden to the Donner-verse, every single problem I have with it that kept it from being a truly great classic in my eyes goes back to Goyer's mediocre (and too many times, cringe-worthy bad) writing. He was the one failing that held back what should have been - with that cast and those visuals and that music - the undisputed king daddy of 2013. And unless some miracle happens, his script will likely be what holds back this "World's Finest" film from being the iconic milestone of the genre that it should be as well.

I hope you're right in that they'll bring in others to touch it up. I want only great things for this movie, believe me. But until they do, I'm not gonna let myself get too hyped for something that will inevitably lead to crushing disappointment. If Goyer was capable of writing a great script on his own, he would have demonstrated it by now - he's been afforded access to more talent and resources than most screenwriters could ever dream of. He just doesn't have it in him, imo.
