I don't think HE gets it. I found this today in my Superman alert email from Yahoo. Seems some people are upset at the one famous Superman line being changed from "Truth, justice and the American Way" to "Truth, justice, all that stuff." It was said by Daily Planet editor Perry White in the film.This guy says that this is an anti-American sentiment. I think that the authors of the movie crafted it to be a more WORLD-oriented statement. The 50s got it wrong. Superman is not just American--he is of the world. And anything less is not true to Superman. I think the authors did a great job there to use the sentiment, a phrase imbedded in our heads, and turned it into a quick worldview.
