    Bingo.

    I mean hell, you can just as easily revisit the "Last Kryptonian" angle through a Brainiac storyline. Don't even have to touch the origin.

    If you're talking reboot, I would have an opening two minute scene of Jor-El and Lara putting him in the ship, Krypton explodes, shows flashes of the rest of his origin as part of the opening credit montage and then come out of the credits by telling an established Superman story.

    The only one I really want to see replaced is Amy Adams. I like her generally as an actress but not as Lois Lane. Other than that, whilst there's no-one I want to see go there's really no-one that I think must stay either.

    Well if they're hellbent on keeping the cast, they can just replace Cavill with his Canadian doppelganger and hope no one notices, lol.

    Replace 'em all or nobody, imo.

    You have to admit, with all of the bad things that has happened to Superman's film franchise, you can't help but wonder if there really is some kind of cursed fro the character.lol

    Even Spiderman seemed cursed after a failed reboot in less than 10 years.
    There is always space to relaunch a character, BUT the problem is that WB don't seem to care anymore about developing their comicbook franchises on the silver screen.
    I wouldn't bet a cent about a new Superman movie.

    I think that it could be a good thing. IMO Superman should relaunch the cb genre in 5-10 years.

    The time after "Superman Returns" was a stressful time as a Superman fan and it was a relief when MOS was announced and made. I thought finally things were rolling for an ongoing Superman universe. Then it happened all over again.

    The general audience doesn't really care about being given an origin. We didn't need flashbacks to explain how people had powers in the Incredibles. It's really only geeks like us that demand explanations and consistent continuity. Most people seem to be perfectly satisfied with "A wizard did it".

    Also, if they are really wondering about where Superman came from they can just rent MOS lol.

    You're definitely not going to do an origin film again and spend an hour for him to become Superman nor stop the action in the middle of the film to do flashbacks. I still would use the opening credit montage to scatter images of his origin. Not because we don't know how Superman came to be but as visual reinforcement of the new cast. If Jor-El were to appear later on, I think it helps having a quick image of him on Krypton. If you get a new Jonathan and Martha, then I think a quick image of them discovering Clark helps you immediately connect with the new cast and put the MOS cast and backstory in the rear-view mirror.

    I think that if the Supergirl movie happens and catches on in a big way we won't see a new Superman for a while.

    So first Brandon and now Henry.

    It's mind boggling on how we have yet to have a successful modern day superman franchise.

    We are at two strikes right now. If the next actor that plays Superman isn't able to hit a homerun with the next reboot then I think Warner Bros should seriously consider calling it quits for now.

    And that is assuming that we get a new superman film. Like others have said, if we get a Supergirl film that ends up being very successful then we aren't going to see Superman for a VERY LONG time folks.

    Brandon's our Lazenby. Henry's our Dalton. Guess we'll get a Brosnan next, which I'm ok with. :p

    No no, see, first we need to get our "Traditional Fun Version That Reminds Everyone That They Actually Like The Character" Supes (Brosnan) before we get to our "Better Version of Serious/Gritty After First Failed Attempt" Supes (Craig). ;)

    But that means then that we will get four superman films where one of them is great (i e. Goldeneye), the other one is alright (i.e. Tomorrow Never Dies), the third one is meh (i.e. The World is not Enough), and the final one being a disaster (i.e. Die Another Day). We already went through that during Christopher Reeve's tenure.

    Unlike Routh, Cavill did appear in three films. So technically, he got sequels.

    Not really. Superman doesn't have Successful Cinematic Superhero Qualities, and the qualities that he does have are what make him Superman and differentiate him from other heroes.
