    And wow, that trailer. Nolan did it again.
    I thought people find Superman boring because of his invulernability/God Mode Sue status (as long as Kryptonite isn't involved), thus making him unrelatable to other people compared to the likes of Batman, Spider-Man, and Iron Man. They've tried making him more relatable by giving him a child in Superman Return, but that didn't turn out well. I also don't think it's because of the campy/kiddy persona either. A lot of people didn't like how the old Hulk movie was too dark and depressing, as well as the new Spider-Man movie for trying to adopt the dark and edgy atmosphere of Nolan's Batman movies.
