James Marsden, who played Cyclops in the X-Men movies and the boyfriend of Lois Lane in Superman Returns, explains why he thinks Superman didn’t fly with the next generation of movie goers.



He basically believes Superman’s fundamental flaw is that he’s too wholesome and too "whitebread" compared to Batman or Wolverine (whose characters are agreeably edgyer and darker than Superman.)


If you ask me, and I know you didn’t, Superman just needs to face some enemies who truly challenge him physically and mentally. What ever they plan to do with the franchise, I hope they don’t try to change the character too much to appeal to this so-called next generation of movie goers. All they need is a great story line, lots of action, and not to stray too far from the original mythology. I still am worried about where they’ll take the next installment.


Tell us what you think about Superman Returns and the future of the franchise..Is he going to "fly" again??
