Pretty much this. I've been thus far unimpressed in the post-Reeves Superman offerings. And I'm not a fan of these recent "gritty reboots" that have been all the rage. However I will watch this one with an open mind and see what it has to offer.

For the skeptics ill say to just go look christopher nolans last four movies and how they have been. Also how well they did in the box office money wise. The dark knight trilogy and inception. Im pretty excited about it soley because nolan directed it and he did an amazing job with those other 4 movies.

I'll admit I'm a "fanboy" of Superman, so I'm really hopeful this move is going to be as good as the trailers make it seem. I rarely use that word to describe someone, but it is appropriate in this case.

My liking of the character aside, I can admit not all things associated with it have been good. Take Superman Returns for example. While I didn't hate it the way many others did, the film definitely left me wanting.

I mean if the production team was just going for a reboot of the original Donner film (I mean it was even an elaborate land-grabbing scheme by Lex Luthor), they could've done a much better job in other areas.

While it's true Man of Steel seems to be a melding of the first two Donner films, this one seems to have modernized the iconic figure and his surroundings (villains) so it isn't perceived as an attempt to pay homage to Christopher Reeve (the production team of Superman Returns obviously tried to make Brandon Routh look like a new-age Reeve) and Richard Donner.

i like zack snyder's work though some or all of his projects can be a bit shallow. nolan being involved gives me hope that it wont be all glitter and no gold.
