the studio heads who saw what Marvel did / is doing with The Avengers franchise and who are saying - hey, we like money too!

same reason you'll see yet another (yes, another) Batman re-boot in the next two years or so. To tie in with the "team" franchise model.

i know everyone will think I am trolling but honestly, from the trailers i have seen, this movie looks absolutely terrible.  Even literally looking terrible-the visual style seems...off and unsuited to superman.
Then again, I liked Routh's (minus the deadbeat dad storyline) and have never read a single Superman comic.

I'm not. Didn't see the last Spiderman film either. Rebooting every ten years stretches the material a little thin.

I am, however, looking forward to Star Trek, especially Alice Eve's spin on Carol Marcus.

Studio executive thinking:  "Dark and brooding worked for Batman, teen angst seemed to work for Smallville.  Let's shovel in lots of that."

Instead of doing yet another goddamn Superman/Batman/Spiderman/X-Men movie, how about you try out a new line of superheroes, Hollywood?

Astro City is an awesome series, chock full of interesting characters.

Superman Returns has been the only time I've actually fallen asleep in a movie theater, and that was in a 3D Imax screening on opening weekend. It was just so unbelievably boring. Saw it a second time (since I missed some due to sleeping) and still found it insanely boring.

And I thought Kevin Spacey played a great Lex Luthor, but the script just wasted him and everything else.

Two points:

1. Marvel hit the big time with Avengers...you have to expect DC will try the same with their properties.  This is apparently the first of their Justice League set up movies.  Being that it's DC and Warner, I assume it will suck immensely and immediately be rebooted.  How they can handle an animated universe so well and a movie universe so poorly is beyond me.

2. Movies based on more independent lines or less well known characters have a spotty history at best.  Sure, there's a few gems (Road to Perdition, History of Violence, RED, Kick Ass, etc), but also a lot of horrible ones (Barb Wire, Tank Girl, Ghost Rider, Daredevil...you know this list well, I'm sure).  That makes it harder to get them made, but there are a lot of good titles that aren't the headliners that would be awesome movies.

I feel like I must be the only person on the entire Internet who plans on actually seeing this film or at least reading the reviews before I decide for myself if it sucks or not.

If they bombed they wouldn't be.  Superman Returns had a reported budget of $209 million and $391 million in worldwide gross revenue.  An that was a pretty mediocre effort.  A good Superman movie might just kill it.

Out of all those, gotta say I enjoyed R.E.D. the most. That movie was just awesome fun throughout, and an aging Bruce Willis fit that role perfectly.

That's what I thought as well when I read their post.  While it would be cool to see some lesser known titles come to life, they're hit or miss because of the fact that they're lesser known.  Joe Schmoe doesn't know Astro City, but they know Superman, etc.  The studios don't want to miss and want to make money, so the popular titles, which are more likely to make that money, are made.

At the same time though, that saturation can lead to people either becoming bored with the character, or feeling that the studio farked the story/character up in one way or another (which happens all the farking time).

With lesser known titles you have more freedom to do what you want (RED the comic was almost completely different than the movie). I had zero expectations seeing that movie and enjoyed every second of it.

Studios actually prefer the indie comics that are least comic-like.  Those are the ones that seem to work.  B-list heroes tend to fail - even from the big boys (Catwoman...even Green Lantern).  So if a comic doesn't seem like a comic, then they can sort of downplay the connection - how many people really know RED is based on a comic?  Or Road to Perdition?  Or 300?

That's because they made bad movies. Blade probably isn't even B-list but that did well enough to get 2 sequels.

Not to mention Superman Returns was not a retelling of the origin story at all.  It was supposed to pick up 7-8 years after the end of the Superman II which explains the grown ass kid Lois Lane had.

I am not sure why people think we have had a ton of Superman origin movies.  If I recall there has only been one from 1977, everything else was a sequel.  It's not like they are rebooting the Spiderman series 10 years after the last origin movie.  It has been 36 years since the last Superman origin movie.  I am fine with this.

Sounds good, only replace "smack him in the back of the head" with "shock his genitals with an industrial strength cattle prod".

I'm willing to bet most people are thinking about Smallville. That was basically a decade long Superman origin story.

Nope. Superman just seems like such a boring superhero. One weakness? Awesome at everything? Makes up powers as he goes? Looking at you, Mr. "Throw my 'S' emblem to wrap them up like cellophane". Hey, now he can walk through walls, see through walls, have X-Ray vision, reverse time, fire lasers from his dick, do that dance where he holds one leg and jumps over it with the other, etc. etc.

Snore.
