Not interested unless they dump David Goyer and Zach Snyder.

Plus swap to Marvel's action-comedy formula for a sitcom-superhero movie. Blow me. Superman could have been better, but for those of us who want less goofy, cliched shit I'll stick with Snyder and Goyer. They just need to be reigned in a bit, a run time over 2 hours isn't necessary for this kind of film - granted there are exceptions.

Well you are probably the last person I would expect to be a Man of Steel fanboy who cannot handle a difference of opinion. Sure let's keep Zach (Hack?) Snyder who cannot hold a camera still to save his life and outdoes Michael Bay when it comes to soulless bombastic action scenes. Yeah, he's real great with the actors too. Didn't Cavil and Adams have wonderful chemistry? I thought they really clicked for a whole 5 seconds when Amy Adams said "Welcome to the planet." Oh and Crowe and Costner gave terrific performances too! Their monotone line delivery and blank facial expressions gave me goosebumps!
Let's not forget Goyer who, like you said, wrote an original and mostly cliche movie! So what he recycled the origin story from the original movie? He added so many awesome new things! Like Kevin Costner killing himself by running into a CG tornado to save a dog! Wow that wasn't silly and contrived at all like those stupid Marvel movies! How about that zippy dialogue? "What if I need to tinkle?" "Are we done measuring dicks?" "Sorry, sir, I just think he's kind of hot." Wow! Classic Goyer!"
No. It may have a more serious tone than most superhero movies but that doesn't make it better. It is terrible not because it goes overboard with the tongueincheek humor that Marvel does but because it was a serious superhero movie made by two hacks. I don't care if you like it, just stop being such a d-bag and let someone have an opinion.

Comparing Zack Snyder and Michael Bay is like comparing Paul Verhoeven with a Porn director. Bay is classless and has no concept of what belongs and doesn't belong on film. Snyder may not be the best director in the world, but at least he has class.

You have to admit that the loud, explosion filled, shaky cam, consequence free, aliens invade a major city climax would not be out of place in a Michael Bay movie.

*wrote a mostly cliche FREE movie.
How'd Goyers' writing on Ghost Rider turn out again. Yeah, cause that was a gem in the Marvel archive. How about Blade Trinity? He made that by far the best in the series or Nick Fury: Agent of Shield. Just sayin' on the even field of Marvel movies I can't say Goyer has covered himself in glory. I'll take Del Toro's Blades and just about anything this side of Elektra over either of the Ghost Rider movies.

The genius of the early Blade's clearly had more to do with Del Toro's direction than Goyers writing and I'll take just about anything this side of Elektra over either of the Ghost Rider movies.

It's true Val. Personally, I loved The Avengers, but I also liked Fantastic Four. I mean, other than a few mistakes in characterization(and about 100m in budget), FF really isn't that much different than The Avengers, yet "TA" is almost universally loved, while FF is more reviled than anything. DC needs to stick to making serious Superhero fare rather than shamelessly attempting to copy the Marvel formula.

Odd someone complaining about the comparison between Bay and Snyder and then comparing FF and The Avengers.
