Default Re: Superman the Movie = STILL the greatest superhero movie

Besides, if the studio did return to the S:TM paradigm, there would be the biggest crapstorm the internet has ever seen. I am not saying the film is without flaw, but, we will never see a film like it again.
I don't understand why some people want superhero movies to be more serious than regular action movies. Terminator 2 had many funny scenes, but that didn't make the movie campy.

Something is wrong when you feel depressed after seeing a Superman movie
