People were having problems with that movie the moment it was announced. Remember that first photo of Routh? Good god that was a dark day for Superman fans.
Outside of IM and possibly cap, this tends to happen to all launch reveals.
Xmen maybe got it the worst, but I was pretty young so I don't remember.

A movie about a man learning to be Superman will finally get the GA invested in the premise, while at the same time piss off people that want what they want. If only the latter group showed up for the last movie.
