Re: How about a Superman that can't fly?

no question Smallvillle is the answer to your question, but im not sure a Superman who cant fly would become a global hero, sure he could still protect Metropolis with his super speed and super jumping, but after, but it would limit the area of his heroics.

it also would make it difficult for him to do things like rescue plans, sure he can super leap up to where the plan ism but after that he is going to have problems.

And if he doesn't fly, why waste the story on the superman character, use a new or different character.

Re: How about a Superman that can't fly?

I think Superman only being able to leap tall buildings for the duration of the movie and then maybe only learning to fly at the end for the money shot finish (kind of like James Bond only famously saying his name like he always does in the very last shot of "Casino Royale") could have been a cool idea for an origin story movie, but it's too late for that now.

I don't think no one knows what they want.

unless its a prequel set on Kyprton, I think we can just skip to Clark being Superman & working at the Daily Planet without to much explaining.

Make it Lois's first day at the Daily Planet or something, that would seem like a good place to start a Superman movie.

^ That would probably be a good way to go. I've suggested this in the past, but I think you can start a Superman series the way Batman 89 did it. Have it with Clark/Supes in Metropolis for the first time, but you don't dwell on his coming from Krypton all that much, if at all.

that works to

I think given our computer age, I think a Brianic villain might be a way to go, also whilst explaining his back story (later in the movie), you get the basics of Clarks as well.
