    Perhaps it could hit and catch on, I would just wonder if casual moviegoers would think it was a lazy look or something. Heck I remember that coming up when the first New 52 Action promo was released.

    I'd second this take but I also agree with Sacred Knight. You need some kind of spectacle in a superhero movie. I'd pop in and pick one of the C-list Superman villians as he's got like 100 of them on Wikipedia and revamp them reflect this era of his life etc.

    Cavill deserves a shot with a decent director and script.

    This arc really is the perfect blueprint for what a Superman origin film would look like.

    It breaks the traditional mainzstream view of the character, but does it by going back to the old roots of the character, not reinventing him. Also it puts Metallo and Brainiac onto the screen in a concise way.

    I'd save the Anti-Superman Army for a sequel, just in a more straight forward story than what Morrison had.

Maybe throw the Anti-Superman Army into the mix earlier for the supervillain threat on top of Superman doing his social justice deeds. Instead of being led by Vyn, they're led by Lex whom in actuality is a puppet for Brainiac though we don't find that out till the end. Show Michael B. Jordan how cool John Henry Irons is and get him on board. And while I know t-shirt and jeans look has its fans, for the wider appeal of a general audience though I think it would be better to give him a normal costume.

    I think like the arc itself, it should end with him getting a classic suit (or have him get in in the third act). As long as the fact that him having both would be marketed clearly, I think it would go over well with the wider audience.
