Re: J.J. Abrams Says Returning To Superman 'Would Be A Blast'

It seems to me that a lot of the praise for Abrams' Star Trek was based on nostalgia, which is what Singer was trying to do in Superman Returns.

I think you'd have to include a somewhat different origin/interpretation; I don't think people like just being dropped into an old-fashioned or already-established character/world. A lot of recent blockbusters have spent a good deal of the time in the first film just introducing the characters.
