I don't get the same enjoyment out of it and it seems like it has just been growing in length and scale for no reason other than escalation. Don't get me wrong, a movie like this needs action. Story and character people want to see the hero being heroic. Superman Returns and TDKR failed in that sense for me.

Back on topic, at least the worldbuilding in Man of Steel seems really solid, so if they brought in the right writing/directing talent to improve the execution, we could get one hell of a Superman movie. (That is if the critics are right). Speaking strictly of my tastes of course.
don't forget the Avengers!
