I've always been curious what the effect SR had on the audience anticipation. I've always believed had mos come out instead of that film it would have been "much bigger", but in all the hype for MOS I personally forgot about the amount of people with Superman fatigue post Singer.
"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
