Plenty of films are done where it's a olden time story taken place in a foreign country where the characters speak olden English.
And the Donner films and Timm's cartoons had Kryptonians speak English. It's just how it is.
I know the reason they did it but I really would have liked a different language. I know having actors like Shannon and Crowe speak gibberish sounds like it wouldn't have a diminished dramatic effect; however, in Blade the vampires spoke their own language and I don't think it took away anything from their performance or impact. Thats just me of course, maybe most people didn't like those scenes, but I liked them.
