The Superman origin story is the Superman story, period. That's why it gets retold over and over - if there's anything like an actual legend or folklore associated with Supes, it's the story about the rocket and adoption and growing up on a farm and going out into the world. It's John Henry and the steam drill; it's Robin Hood and the archery contest.
I disagree. Thousands of issues of DC comics, multiple movies, serials and tv episodes have nothing to so with Supes's origin.
Death of Batman's parents and radioactive spiders keep popping up, and of course define the characters, but aren't the entirety of the story.

Re: SUPERMAN

And every time they want to create an "event" they go back and retell Superman's origin. Because it's the Superman story.

But how many people actually call any of those movies by their full title? Certainly, in cinemas, people just ask for tickets to 'Pirates of the Carribean' or 'GI Joe' or 'Wolverine', I've yet to hear anyone say the full names.
Precisely. Subtitles are easy enough to ignore. Yet once the sequels come out, it makes it alot easier to refer to all of the movies in the series opposite each other. I much prefer saying "The Curse of the Black Pearl" as opposed to just "the 1st one." I'm also glad that George Lucas added "Episode IV: A New Hope" to the opening crawl of the original Star Wars in 1979.

Kinda sounds like what the title would be in the universe of The Invention of Lying.

Re: SUPERMAN

I sort of like the idea of just simply naming it Superman. It would be a good way to really start fresh.

Though I like some of the other suggestions, like Superman: Last Son of Krypton, I think that's a mouthful.

Perhaps it could go something like:
Superman
Man of Steel
Man of Tomorrow (though I guess it would probably be redundant to use man twice)
Last Son of Krypton


Superman has universal name recognition. I don't think his name has to be at the beginning of each title so long as its announced in the commercials and his "S" shield is prevalent in the marketing of the film.
