I don't think the script was written with any real care or concern for Hama's universe and characters, regardless of the fact that he was an adviser for the film. The primary motive here is money and marketing a toy to get more money, not art or great storytelling or love for something authentic. So to expect anything more will lead to a great letdown.

it has lost the heart and passion for joe that we all have for it in one way or the other. so i can see his point i dont know why ppl feel the need to jump all over someone for not liking this movie.
man best saying ever money talks and bull s**t walks this movie proves it.

I'm making a Superman movie next year.
Even though I'm using the Superman license, I really have no desire to please the fans of said license. This movie will be all about making more dough, er... I meant to say "finding a new audience", because lord knows the nerd audience we have now have no idea what makes a good Superman story. I mean really, they've been fans for like decades where as I just read a few comics yesterday in preparation for my task. It's obvious I know more than they do.
Since I believe the Superman story is much too convoluted for a non-fan like me to follow? I need to make some changes.
1. Lois Lane is in love with Jimmy Olsen who by the way is now black and will be played by Jimmie "Dy-No-Mite" Walker.
2. We're going to avoid the whole secret identity thing because I think that would really confuse people. So we're just going to say his actual birth name is Superman.
3. He no longers works as a newspaper reporter. He's now a computer programmer. No reason for the change, I just felt like it.
4. His only super power now is super strength. Again, no reason for the change, I just felt like it.
5. It turns out that Lex Luthor hates Superman because he's actually the best friend of a 4th cousin of this guy who once knew a girl who dated Superman in high school. Superman broke his heart, and now Lex is out to avenge her.
6. I'm totally re-designing Braniac. He's now an iPod that Lex Luthor listens to. I refuse to let the fans dictate to me what a character should like. Don't they understand? These characters need to be updated!!! The current generation needs their version of Superman!!!
7. Kevin Bacon is a friend of mine, so I'm giving him a totally pointless cameo.
Now instead of actually writing a script? I just plan to have fight scene after fight scene after fight scene. If I'm lucky? The audience will be to busy watching the pretty explosions on the movie screen to even realize this. Now go out and buy dem' action figures! Yee-Haw!!!
