LRA writes: Superman has a had a rough life on the big screen. Aside from the original 1976 Richard Donner film, and to a slightly lesser degree its 1980 follow up, ole Supes has been saddled with some rather lackluster and even godawful films. Back in 2006 director Bryan Singer tried a very ambitious reboot of the franchise which ultimately failed to catch on with audiences. Superman has had to sit on the sidelines while his DC Comics counterpart Batman absorbed all the fame for himself. Well, all of that has changed with director Zack Snyder's retooling of the iconic super hero in the latest feature to try and re-introduce us to the last son of Kyrpton, "Man of Steel".
