I don't know if I like the rumored direction of the film with Clark finding himself. I know it can make for an interesting character piece, but, generally, I associate that theme with "moodiness" and "melodramatic angst". While those elements worked to varying degrees in Smallville and Superman Returns, I was hoping to see something different.
SR and Smallville might have taken the angst a bit too far, but the basic idea of having Clark question his place in the world, or wondering how best to use his powers is still a really GOOD one I think.

^Which is somewhat amusing as the structure of Batman Begins was modeled on the structure of Superman: The Movie.
Indeed. But if it works ...

This is the aspect I find the least interesting, mainly because Superman Returns and Smallville have beaten it into the ground.

I can see your point. I'd like to see a Superman who has FUN with his powers sometimes...

Apparently not many who watched Green Lantern, since his enjoyment was one of the most often voiced complaints

The Green Lantern movie had its problems, but that was not one of them.

True, true.

It's one of the reasons I enjoyed that one more than most of this nonsense.

Well I was referring to the initial, early years. By the time he's older, I'd expect he'd be more at peace with himself and able to have a little more fun.

It was complained about alot.

The "I know, Right" scene and Hal joking and having a personality, rather than being stoic and proper, and getting off on the Ring Power

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Henry Lennix joins "Man of Steel" as General Sandwick. There seems to be a lot of military involvement in this movie which concerns me a little for some reason.

Well with Zod involved, I'm not surprised to see a lot of military stuff in the movie as well.
