WATCHMEN, DAWN OF THE DEAD and to a lesser extent 300 were all satirical stories something you never get a sense of when redone by Zack. Making a 'darker' Superman story isn't a problem the problem is in the end when people walk away without the sense of hope a Superman story, irrespective of tone, should give.
??? I thought MOS has the best, positive and hopeful ending- seeing clark kent being welcomed to the planet and he smiles back.
