It will just jump straight to the story,
Yep. I'm one of those people who think that the opening credit stuff is for the Donner universe and that's it.

yea sure we can start the film out without huge credit deal but as i said i hope we will at least see superman first save or his arrival to the city. So then that way we are into the action with superman within the first few mins/first act of the film. Then still have some flashbacks or what not throughout the film.

I totally agree because it seemed the beginning of SR was very slow moving and too much of a build up which kind of undermined his return. I really don't want to see a 30-45 minute build up unless that allotted time is focused on Clark Kent/Kal-El and THEN introduce Superman. I'd rather want to see that in the first act than say Lois Lane or Lex Luthor.

Do the movie like "Human Target"

Kick it off with the action, and then jump backwards to the exposition.

totally their is so many different ways we can start off with the film and have the story play out. it can be a to b to c, or go b to a to c, etc...... what ever they do i hope they have a story that flows well and isnt a jumbo mess of things.

I wouldn't be too concerned with the story.

Nolan approved of the script. To me, that means fans shouldn't be concerned in the slightest.

The story is quality.


I'm more concerned about the casting/production aspects under the studio's control.

I'm not too concerned. I do know what I would like to see but once the film starts and i'm ( hopefully) blown away, all that I wanted will soon be forgotten.

One thing I think we can all can agree on is that we will get a fantastic fight between Supes and (most likely) Brainiac.

Then i would start off the film with clark's arrival to metropolis and getting hired. Or if they wanted to take that birthright idea and show his world travel/arrival to the planet and all that.
That way the producers would achieve two things:

1-The audience realizes this is a reboot. A brand new Superman film with no relation to the previous films (Donnerverse).

2-All the legal stuff should be cleared by the time the sequel gets done where there can be an expansion of Krypton/origin storylines, etc.

yea it would be a good way to go with it, and like i said i would be happy to at least have that. So then if we dont get the expanded stuff told in the film it could be added in a later story which hopefully by the time a sequel would be out which would likely be 2015ish the legal stuff could be done.

Starting the movie with an established superman not only is confusing (is this Smallville, Retruns, Donnerverse, something new?), but robs a generation of seeing how a Superman develops. Thats out. Here's how I'd run it.
  • Country Road in winter time, old Pickup truck carrying Martha and Jonathan Kent. Couple is oddly quiet, she has a hospital wrist thing on.
  • Radio drones on about a bad blizzard "from here to Topeka" and some county residents will be able to see a meteor shower as well.
  • A big rocket flies past them just in front of the road, they stop abruptly
  • Martha sends him to check for survivors, he plods out into the snow
  • Johnathan finds the pod and tentatively touches it, feeling a lack of heat
  • A holographic image of Jor El comes on. "This is my son. Guard him, and he will guard you." The pod opens up revealing baby.
  • Johnathan returns with red swaddling cloth to truck, Martha is excited about the baby. Tell him to get the rocket. It may help them find out where he's from.
  • We next see Johnathan, in the increasing snow, load the rocket into his truck somehow and drive off.
  • Radio drones on about a bad winter, and be prepared to be sealed in for a while. As we see a star disappear in the sky and the snow cover their tracks, and those of the rocket.
  • EPIC Opening Credits
  • '30 years Later' Clark steps off the bus into Metropolis for the first time.

Origin for the newbies, get to the point for the tired among us, who have seen this story literally 10 different ways, and each of those versions 10 times.

I think it should be a lot like TIH. Some Krypton footage, some Smallville stuff then right to Supes. Most people know Superman. Lets get to the action.

Most people also think Superman's motivations, powers and method of operation are unrealistic. Most people know Batman too, but establishing how he became a hero is important in telling the story if you're going to have any emotional content.

totally if we just have him already superman and its been awhile. its a big mistake there. and they would be blowing their chance again to have a clean reboot/restart for the character. The best thing for me as i said in earlier posts is for us to either start off with some early flashback stuff with more to be revealed throughout the film. Then we start with either clark been in the city as a savior in secret which they can say been a short time like a few weeks, and he relises he cant do this forever and wants to make a way to go public and still have a regular life. So he goes home and ma/pa help him with that. Or we start off with his first arrival and hiring at the planet and shortly after public reveal of superman. As i said in other posts i would be extremlely pissed off if we start off pretty much at the middle of the story and never get to see how or what characters are who they are, and if we skip out on things it lessens the chances to start up characters/plot lines for future stories.
