The problem is they thought they had that with Superman Returns. Obviously, they didn't. The first one sets the tone for the franchise and the tone set was a bad one. You can't simply add some action and expect a miracle, which is what Singer seems to think. That's like adding brand new horseshoes to a dead horse, it's still not going to win the race. Besides, Lack of action was only one of it's many problems.

Regardless of the defenders undying love for it, Superman Returns is viewed as a dissapointment and the time between any actual movement in the franchise is proof to that. It's simply to much of a risk for the studio, even with a smaller budget.
