The size of the House of El crest matters? Really? I had no problem with the symbol in "Superman Returns".
I remember that there was a huge
fanboy issue with the shape, size, and color of the \S/ when pictures of Routh in costume were released.
I also remember a video when Singer was being interviewed and some fan complained to him about it. Singer retorted in a very dismissive manner (which, honestly, matched the fan's attitude) that the \S/ has constantly changed over the past 70 years.
Because of that, I am always willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
