Yeah, the going to Krypton part and the son part. And Lois being butthurt about him leaving. But as the first poster of this thread says, Superman was mostly a lifeless doll in this movie. The was no character to evolve. He never spoke in the damn film. Read the first post of the thread, he says it best.

Anyway, Donner's Superman is an older version the character. The current comics Clark and Superman can be seen in "Lois & Clark". For example Clark is not a bumbling fool, but a dynamic and respectable reporter. His masquerade consists of hunching his back a bit, changing his hairdo and the glasses.

So it took Singer's bland movie to get it but they got it. Its time for a reboot. I heard rumours they were going darker, obviously because of Batman's success, but i hope to god DC arent that stupid to realise that they re different characters that are loved for different reasons.

What new stuff? We already had a FAR BETTER version of Superboy in the comics.
We did not need a bastard son.
