Re: OK...its time.....Man of Steel vs Superman Returns - Part 1
Having the kid was not a good idea at all.
A superhero film is a snap shot of a superhero's legacy. Legacies are so large that they really need more than one move. Donner needed 2 films for the origin. Snyder seems to need 2 as well.
Having a kid really drives the story away from a superheroes journey and more closely family issues. For a series in the comic books. Or perhaps a television show. But for a film, especially one reintroducing Superman doesnt work.
