Oh, do the origin again. It's the only really great Superman story anyway.
There's at least one other great Superman story: the other end of his career. See "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" and All-Star Superman. And I think there have been some pretty good stories between those endpoints.

There have been so many "origin story" superhero movies by now that it's becoming too cliched a trope. Audiences are too familiar with the hero-origin narrative by this point. I think it's time that movies started moving past origins, or covering them only briefly, and getting right into the thick of things.
