Re: Full story for Bryan Singer's planned SUPERMAN RETURNS sequel reve

Egads. The whole Krypto-moon is just silly (wouldn't that have at least some influence on Superman's powers?). And the resolution with Braniac downloading to new bodies, possessing Superman's son and so forth. Yeesh. I'm glad I didn't have to endure that on-screen.

What I *do* like about the outline, and think had great potential, was the conflict of ideology: Superman's lassez-faire philosophy vs. Braniac's hands-on approach. I would have loved to see Braniac's intentions to be good -- rather than purely self-serving -- and watch the conflict between too much meddling and too little intervention play out. That makes for a really compelling character and thematic study. That part of the film I'd like to have seen.
