    I just really don't want to see the Superman Returns concept to return, never a fan of the Christopher Reeve Superman so I'd rather not see it again.

    Seriously?!

    I'm not knocking your opinion, but you're literally the first person I've ever heard that didn't like Reeve.

    yep never cared for him. Liked the Routh rehash of it even less. Prefer the 50's Reeves Superman a lot more.

    I agree 100%. When I started seeing the returns on the latest Mission Impossible installment and heard the rave reviews (which is so rare for a franchise this deep) I thought Cavillís career trajectory was about to take a turn away from being type cast in tights. If we examine the curse that has befallen actors who have taken this role, they typically donít exceed the acclaim the costume gives them. As much as we may not like it, I dare say itís probably a very wise move for him.

    I liked Cavill as Kent/Superman, hopefully he sticks it out for one more movie, but if he doesn't then someone else replaces him and hopefully that person is successful or at least excepted. I personally thought Affleck was just okay as Batman,
    it bothered me that he had to talk like he had a frog in his throat or just smoked two packs of cigarettes before he said his lines, but loved his fight scenes.
