Is Superman Done For?

USA Today has published an article from Comic-Con International asking the question, "Are Superheroes done for?". Included in the article are the following comments by Zack Snyder, director of the "Watchmen" movie.

Of course, as this summer and this comic-book convention have unfolded, it has become clear that no one is Superman anymore. Perhaps, says Watchmen director Zack Snyder, Superman is gone for good. "They asked me to direct a Superman movie, and I said no," Snyder says. "He's a tricky one nowadays, isn't he? He's the king daddy of all comic-book heroes, but I'm just not sure how you sell that kind of earnestness to a sophisticated audience anymore."

So studios are selling everything else, including bitter themes and obscure heroes.
One Word In Answer To There Question: NO!!
