Building strawman of your own, is hard to avoid with this phrasing imo.

It's any interesting point you make however, the question, is how free are producers to play around and push properties like Batman into contemporary and beyond genre filmmaking and how free are they with Superman. "First post 911 cbm..." is something I heard all over tdk praise, nothing good to come of such things when placed in superman imo. Objectively sure, why not. Expectation wise, grey area good vs evil is just not what people expect from superman.

Imperfect heroes are a staple of modern cinema. All modern highly celebrated cbms have this in spades, how conducive to that very concept to Superman of all things?

Hard to ignore imo.

A movie about a man learning to be Superman will finally get the GA invested in the premise, while at the same time piss off people that want what they want. If only the latter group showed up for the last movie.
