lexlives, it's not that we're "settling." Settling makes it sound like we didn't care for the movie but accept it just to keep a franchise going. Those of us who liked the film liked it because we truly enjoyed the film and felt that it did a good job of bringing Superman back. It's just a matter of perspective. The character is almost 70 years old and has gone through many different incarnations and interpretations. Thusly, everyone has a different idea as to who the character is. It just so happens that there is a split: about half feel that SR was a true representation of the character and about half feel that it wasn't (or it was, but simply wasn't fun enough).
