Back in the 70s and 80s, Superman was brought to the big screen in a way that brought the character to life (Not counting the cellophane "S" that he threw from his chest....that was just weird) But ever since then, making the Man of Steel work on the big screen has been a damn near impossible task. So why is that exactly? I mean, he's Superman! How could the most iconic comic book character ever created be so hard to adapt to a movie? The short answer; because he's perfect.
