If it's crap ... We'll tell you
That is all I have to say on that at the moment...
Overall, the very idea behind rebooting and remaking franchises has completely jumped the shark. When shit like this pops up, it becomes more and more apparent that too many people in the creative fields are spinning their wheels. Things get really depressing when you consider the possibility that Red Letter Media's assertion (in the Star Trek review) that 96% of the movies released in the past 2 years were either remakes, reboots, or adaptations, may be factually accurate. Let's not get the wrong idea here. It worked with Batman Begins, but that was '05. Five years later, and it's still the only reboot that I can think of that actually worked. We know Superman's attempt didn't pan out to shit in the movies. So, I'm wondering where the other attempts are going wrong. How are the other attempts failing? What about Batman's revival are they not grasping?
Well, the first thing that stands out to me is that NO attempt to reinvent this particular wheel has ever worked. People seem to like Superman just fine the way he's been since the Silver Age. Any attempt to deviate too far from that has been met with revolt. Remember this shit...?
My point is that Superman has endured because the character is fundamentally suitable for any time period without having to tinker with him much if at all. He is so iconic that any attempt to change him in any way is almost seen as an insult to his place in culture. It goes back to what I had to say about the Devil May Cry reboot, but here it has precedence. If there's nothing to fix, why bother looking for something to excuses to make repairs? To keep things "fresh?"
I could probably expound on this a lot more, but I didn't plan on typing this up so it's kinda infringing on prior plans. In either case, I'd rather hear others think about this...
