Also, in direct comparison to Superman Returns, Man of Steel is in infinitely more capable hands. Bryan Singer is a mediocre director who caught lightning in a bottle with The Usual Suspects (mostly due to an incredible cast) and has ridden the success ever since.

Snyder has adapted and evolved as a director almost exponentially in every film he puts out and deserves full marks for making a very respectable adaptation of Watchmen, something that was deemed virtually unfilmable at one point. In the equally capable hands of Goyer and Nolans as writers/producers, I have no doubt Man of Steel will meet expectations.

And, for what it's worth, Frank Miller has said that Snyder is the only director he'd consider making a worthy adaptation for The Dark Knight Returns.
