Or it's as if someone had The Beatles do an album in the Rolling Stones style rock. (A friend always said Superman and Batman were the Beatles and Rolling Stones of comics.)
Yeah. Much like Star Trek and Star Wars are the Beatles and Rolling Stones of sci fi. You can like both, but not both equally.
I like Batman and Superman equally.

I like The Beatles and The Stones equally.

I like Star Trek and Star Wars equally.

It's really not too difficult.
Yes. Sure. And I like both my daughters equally.

Well, you probably can, but that means appreciating the stylistic differences that distinguish and define them. At least in my opinion, it's not playing to strength for a Superman movie to have a brooding and overly grave feel to it any more than I would want to hear a Beatles cover of "Sympathy for the Devil" or have Kirk's first officer be a character like a Wookiee.
