Personally I think this franchise needs some "fresh air," and Joss Whedon sure could create something very interesting. But - we know he's a good writer, but how good is he at directing?

What do you think, guys?
So you want Lois and maybe Perry or Jimmy to die?

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.
Man you love to talk (OK - write) depressing.
