Re: What's So Bad About Superman Returns?
^Well, Singer was fan of the Donner movies, not the comics, and back in 2006, I think he would have been criticised for not using things from the Donnerverse so he tried to please everyone by praising the old movies while trying to bring new fans to the character and universe.
WB wanted this back then as well remember, as it was them who greenlit Singers pitch about paying homage to the old movies. I still give him credit for trying something different in comic book movies, and I still love the movie personally, and would have liked to see were any sequel/s went, but it didnt happen. Thankfully I loved MOS as well.
