Re: Superman Begins

If there is a reboot, restart, or redo, the origin should be dispatched with great ease as it was at the beginning of Superman Returns or better yet the manner in which it was dealt with in All-Star Superman. It could have a series of quick images, like comic-book panels, with narration or captions that read: "Doomed Planet. Desperate Parents. Last Hope. Kindly Couple."

Then move into a story that truly tests the heart of Superman in a well-crafted nuanced script that doesn't pander to just fist fights and costumed theatrics. Superman, like Batman, can be treated maturely. SR attempted to do just that, but failed in a great number of places. Nevertheless, I enjoyed that movie and its visual representation of the world of Superman.
