It doesn't matter who is wearing the suit or playing these other characters if the script sucks and the director doesn't understand who Superman is and why the character has endured for so long.
All of which explains perfectly why Returns was shit.
That said though, I'd like to see the Lois & Clark cast (minus Lane Smith, sadly) again. They'd be good for one big screen adventure. Don't care who the director is.
No..it didn't suck. It just wasn't written with the ADD audiences that movies must cater to...
