I think eventually it'll be hard to do a version of Superman that isn't a period piece. I mean, print newspapers already seem to be a dying medium...
As a newspaper reporter, I love hearing it when people declare newspapers as a "dying medium."
I agree. It's ignorance more than anything else.
Remember when people thought newspapers were dying off in the age of TV news, so the writers misguidedly had Clark become a TV reporter back in the late 70s/early 80s? Yeah, that lasted.
