People love throwing this site around, so I'll give it a try.

76% .... Let's compare that to two other classic characters.

Batman Begins: 84% (+8)
Spider-Man 2: 93% (+17)

For a Superman movie, it didn't meet the mark. That might be subjective, but we have to stop and ask ourselves: "Why wasn't it received better?"



True.
I am still not following you, the box office results were already in by the end of October and Legendary Pictures already had confirmed they were in. After DVD sales come in and the movie makes more money, why would they back out? I still don't understand your theory.

Many turn to Rotten Tomatoes for reference, but luckily I am not one of them. I can't really take stock in 236 movie reviewers, although 180 out of that number thought it was "fresh". That is what they call, a small sampling of the population. We won't really know who is the minority or majority ever, it's speculation.

Sure anything can happen, nothing is guaranteed, especially in Hollywood. You or I don't really have to question why it wasn't received better, that question is for WB to work out on the sequel.

If there is a sequel Singer and company, or whomever is running the show, needs to brighten it up and add some action. Simple formula.
