"Superman: Man of Steel" a true reboot

Via Screen Rant:

Bryan Singer’s attempt to both reboot the Superman franchise with Superman Returns and pay homage to its cinematic predecessors ultimately proved less profitable than Warner Bros. had hoped. Now Zack Snyder has been charged with giving the iconic costumed hero a makeover in the upcoming Superman: Man of Steel – and as far as the 300 director is concerned, he’s starting with a blank slate.

Snyder says his Superman reboot (which likely will be titled Man of Steel, but that decision is not set in stone yet) will “respect the canon” of the character without being a slave to his previous film incarnations.

The best news for me is that Snyder plans on bringing back General Zod as the main baddie. Of course, it'll sure be tough to top Terence Stamp's classic portrayal.

Who is this usurper? Why does he seek
to replace me -- when he knows I shall kill
him for it?

You know a Superman villain I don't think has ever been portrayed on any movie or tv series yet? Brainiac. I wonder why that is.

Easy -- the average Hollywood liberal isn't credible playing someone with an IQ above room temperature, much less a super-genius.

No number of reboot attempts will prevent Superman from being boring.

Maybe if they give him a villain that uses black magic, I don't know. It can be done, just takes imagination.
