I have always said that a good Superman film HAS to have a good Lois/Supes relationship because men are not the only ones who like Superman and women want to see him kiss Lois. We have our needs too
Ah yes, well girls lust after the actor. That's hardly excuse enough. I'm talking strictly narrative.

I am still perplexed by what he even thought he was achieving with the character, and chalk it up to he does not really know Superman as a character, but identifies with certain elements of him that HE enjoys and then he made this movie wanting to highlight just those elements.
Well, you explained to me the very same ting I explained you. And EVERY director, naturally, chooses the elements that they like the most about a certain character. This is old news.

I don't see much washing. 59% of good reviews and a sequel where they thought Batman was necessary to boost things.

They are bad exactly because of that. Specially when every single superhero movie does it almost without a variation. That's why we barely have any love interest that has any flesh on it.

MOS did great in that sense. Then the kiss reminded us that no matter how good the character is portrayed, this is formula.

May I ask when did you see SR?
