    But something about him rubs me the wrong way; he just comes off as a very cold fish; very self-interested and calculating. He in it for the bucks and has outright said so. In one sense this is refreshing because it is honest.

    On the other hand, it shows that he doesn't care; (I kinda got the same vibe from Welling who wasn't even an actor).

I'm no defender of MOS, but just for some perspective, these are Henry Cavill's words:

"They’re the mythological heroes of our day,” Cavill says, “and I want to help tell their stories for as long I can.” He seems almost territorial over the Man of Steel and his story. “But I have no power over the script,” he admits, “and Chris Terrio [scriptwriter for the series] is a very good writer. There’s so much that can be done with Superman. The Batman story is easy. He’s dark and brooding and dangerous. Superman, I believe, can be a better story, but it requires 10 times the effort to get it right. All I can do is keep my fingers crossed that the big cheeses at the top care as much about the character as I do.”

Right there is the biggest problem, no one knows how to really bring Superman to the movies!
