Superman actor may get it

Some time ago, Warner announced plans to make another Superman movie that's darker, signaling that they misperceive why the audience went to see the Dark Knight this summer. However, it looks like now, the star of the previous Superman movie may understand what's wrong with this:
But Routh is adamant that plans to make the franchise much "darker" than Superman's previous incarnations should not go ahead - because the Man of Steel will always be a clean-cut character.

He tells Moviehole.net, "I don't know how much darker you want to make it necessarily. You make the stakes higher, you make the villain darker, I think that's a way to do it. But I don't think Superman himself needs to be darker. He definitely has to struggle.

"But I don't think Superman should ever be dark and brooding, that's not his nature. And that's now what people want to see."
Not everyone wants to see the Man of Steel as a brooder. What works for Batman does not work for Superman, and vice versa. Warner's producers, from what I can tell, may have used that as an excuse to obscure how audiences avoided Superman Returns because it was simply dull, and also deliberately omitted anything clearly identifying it as American. Why can't they be honest and admit to failure out of PC-absurdity?
