One thing I'm wondering about... nearly everyone and his dog was complaining about Lex Luthor's ploy in Superman Return. Everybody went "What, AGAIN real estate?!"
And now this is essentially a remake of Superman I and II with better effects, but nobody bitches about that?
Is there a verified plot synopsis that backs that up?
Outside the origin angle and Zod(who hasn't been on the silver screen in 30 years), who isn't a fair gripe compared to Luthor, is there anything else to back up what your saying? Two shared points does not compute as same in my book.
It would be creative fail if the real estate scheme is used. Not to mention outdated for the character. Luthor has been portrayed no less than 3 times in major Superman media projects as a corporate mogul over the past 20 years.
