I think it's time that movies started moving past origins, or covering them only briefly, and getting right into the thick of things.
The "hitting lots and lots of things real hard" part. Gotcha.

The reason that the "last" Superman story could be reasonably good is it was permitted to transform and resolve decades of repetitious story tropes. Not one superhero comic in five thousand moves the character permanently from one place in their life to another - they're episodes, tales...ultimately, macaroni and cheese.
