Kevin Smith on Superman Returns

from Fox News:
By the way, I couldn’t resist asking Smith what he thought of the new "Superman Returns,"as he was one of the many screenwriters who took a crack at the script along the film’s torturous route to the big screen.

“I always think it’s great to have a director see his vision realized, and Bryan Singer’s vision of Superman as Jesus was definitely achieved,” he told me.

Yes, this Superman may have the mildest manners of all who donned the “S” before him.

But forget about viewing it as a filmmaker, I said. What did Smith think as a fan?

“Well,” he answered wryly, “I would have liked to see Superman punch someone.”
