    I know. But if they have to invest money in a second DC show, it should not be Superman.

    A Superman TV show should focus on Superman. Really what they should do is "Superman and son", Superman and Lois as parents. That is the unexplored frontier of the story. Lois and Clark almost got us there, but not quite. That is where they should go.

    Smallville is a Superman origin story. It is also the last Superman story that was successful. Superman Returns flopped because it was little more than z rehash of lines from the Donner films and didn't really stand on its own. Although I haven't seen the new Superman film, the bits and pieces that I have seen haven't drawn me to want to check it out. They would have had more success if they did a Superman film that was an extension of the cast and characters developed in Smallville, sort of like the stories happening in the comic series Smallville Season 11.
    At this point I think Superman should be given a rest.

    Definitely need a new Superman animated series as it's been 13 years since we had one.
