Re: Why would someone avoid STID but see Iron Man & Man Of Steel? spoi

I don't think people avoided ST:ID - after all it's the most successful Trek movie ever made! I think that the marketing was too downbeat though and if it had been promoted as more of an Indiana Jones style romp then I think it'd have made more money.

Superman's success is likely due to the excellent first film starring Christopher Reeve. Everyone wants the next S-man film to be that good! I also think that pretty much everyone has forgotten Superman Returns, so there weren't the skeptics that there were for say the amazing Spiderman reboot.

For what it's worth, I thought Superman was terrible, if you're interested, here are my reviews of ST:ID and MOS:
