STM is the way it was because it was the first Superhero movie. But as times progress and the popularity of other heroes and huge film franchises. People gravitate to the other heroes. Superman has fallen in popularity.

I dont think its a fad. Its more realistic. If your a little boy that knows he's different. And you have these powers that no else has. You would be freaked out. Clark is not a normal kid. With bullying being a big issue today it can be challenging emotionally or depressing.

Superman was raised has a human, wants a human life, wants a human girlfriend, raised as a farmer's son, not a son of a philosopher of life with all the answers.

Donner's films wont work today. Not as a blockbuster film. 12 years in the fortress and then he's Superman. Where is the progression.
Tru dat !
