I'm not sure how a film that has been rebooted (from Christopher Reeve's Superman to the animated Superman: Brainiac Attacks where Jonathan Kent lives) and then returned to a previous continuity (Superman Returns returning to Christopher Reeve's Superman) doesn't count.
I'm pretty sure that most folks see animation and live-action as two distinct animals.
Exactly.
I thought I remembered a live action Lois and Clark movie and while Googling for it I came across the Trekbbs post below that supports my point. It so happens to have you on the other side of the argument:

I honestly can't think of a single movie or tv franchise that reverted back to a previous continuity after being rebooted.
"Superman Returns" ignored "Superman III", "Supergirl" and "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" and was a sequel to "Superman II".
The rest of Reeve's movies were ignored and they did go back to a previous continuity.
