Considering your on a message board, around here... all that matters is the biased fan perspective. Superman Returns did well critically. Routh actually gained some critically praise. Now as far as the general public goes, that really will also be influenced by the film's box office and who actually sees this thing. It's in June (a difficult month of blockbusters) and going up against a Will Smith blockbuster, a Brad Pitt blockbuster and a Pixar film. I'm not expecting crazy Box Office on this one.
