I've been seeing in some of these threads and in other threads that doubt Superman as a character that can successfully carry a movie franchise. I know MoS hasn't come out yet and it has the potential to either fail/succeed, but I don't think it'll come down to "Superman is irrelevant to modern audiences" or "Superman is a dull character" or "Superman needs Batman in a WF film so that people would watch him in a movie." A lot of people seem to forget that Smallville was a 10 season show and at least the first season has shown everybody that Clark Kent/Superman can still be '"relevant" given Smallville's popularity at the time. I loved the first 2 seasons of Smallville and sporadically watched a few episodes here and there afterwards. There's also the Twilight-ized Superman in Earth One. I actually didn't like this story very much as a DC fan, but a lot of my friends that read the copy off my coffee table thought it was very good and that Clark is relatable, the one thing that most fans say to discredit Superman/Clark as character. In addition, the GN seems to have been commercially succesful enough to warrant a sequel and to also be one of the GN that are exclusive to the Kindle Fire. So why the Superman doubting/hate?
