And you honestly think this new Superman movie is... better?
I mean better beyond special effects.
There's nothing about The Crow that I haven't seen in The Batman/The Shadow/Punisher stories done before and if Lee hadn't died during filming, I doubt the movie would have been as popular as it was. Same as Christopher Reeve; if he was alive and well today, all he would be remembered for is how sucky his \S/ franchise turned out to be. When these guys die early/tragically, fans put on the rose-colored glasses and set them for "canonize".
Personally, I want balls to the wall action movies, when it comes to Super-heroes. Everything before MoS is watered down with formulaic character development that we've all seen a million times before.
