Re: Superman Begins

^I'm sorry, but that's a recipe for failure. The audience doesn't want a Superman movie in which Superman is a baby for the first 1/2 to 2/3 of the movie. That's not at all like BB, which introduced us to Bruce in media res when he was well into his training, and flashed back to the salient points of his origin. What you're proposing would by like if BB had spent the first 1/2 to 2/3 of the movie focusing on Thomas and Martha Wayne while Bruce was a kid.
