Alot of people dont like the kid idea. I recently talked to a friend I havent seen in years and when Superman Returns came up,he was almost hostile about it. He hated that the mythology was messed with(and like myself looks at the first film as something of a Holy Relic)

Heres the thing - do you redo the Clark/Lois skit yet again, that we've seen so many times or do you move foward. Singer and writters chose to move foward and I agree with the idea.

The Superman themes are still there- isolation, his misson on earth vs personal happiness (further explored in the Donner Cut),etc but examined in a different way.

I dont think we're going to see a Superboy type thing happen. The kids purpose is emotional.
