Superman comic fans, teenagers and kids want to see Superman beat up super villains. Its so simple a monkey can do it. Let me help you out with the basics.

Superman Returns? Didn't happen. None of it. Lets forget it. This is a reboot.

Superman origin? Take a cue from Incredible Hulk and do it all in the credits. Now here we are, Clark Kent works for the Daily Planet. Clark can still be the bumbling, kind-hearted country bumpkin. That stays. In fact, you can keep Brandon Routh, he was alright. Just make the S symbol bigger please. Oh, and of course he has eyes for Lois Lane.

Lois Lane needs sass. And hips. And a badonkadonk. (And please note that Lois Lane needs skin tone similar to Teri Hatcher and less like Kate Bosworth. Unless you can get a really good actress like Margot Kidder.) But really Lois needs attitude and sex appeal and journalistic integrity.

Jimmy Olsen? Fearless and cool. But kind of a dork. Keep him dressed as old school Jimmy but with that nostalgic charm.

Lex Luthor? less like Gene Hackman and more like the comic and Bruce Timm produced incarnation. Intelligent businessman whose obsessed with destroying Superman because Metorpolis is his city.

The story centers around the creation of Metallo. To fight Sueprman. In the streets of Metropolis. Plus some other Lex Luthor mechanization to bother Superman.

There. General information on what the Superman fans want to see. Quit with the whole realism, relatability, or trying to make him sympathetic. Superman should stand as a symbol of truth and justice. Fighting bad guys in big awesome battles.

I will gladly write this screenplay. For cheap too. Holler back.

That's a pretty good take on a Superman movie. Too bad Hollywood wont get the memo.
