I'll concede that point, definitely. STM was big and epic.

I was merely commenting on the writing of the two.

Although, now that you reminded me of it, already having a fairly serious live action Superman in the TV series, kinda makes me all the more is appointed that STM ended up as campy as it is.

I'll give all the credit in the world to the scope, and the plotting (which is now the standard plot for all superhero movies), ad even a lot of theerformances...but those few, rather big, logistical failures in the script will always diminish the film's quality, IMO.

It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
