MODERN? Why should Superman be MODERN? Great, that's all we need, turning him into a whiny existentialist emo prick. Superman is Superman; he does not, and should not, change. He should always be the idealist Boy Scout we grew up with. He should always be a true hero.
How does modern = emo? To make a Superman movie seriously now, they have to update some things. For example, the idea of him working at a newspaper office to keep up to date on crimes is ludicrous now, because web based services have supplanted newspapers.
