Again, movies have been made or based off things that are a lot simpler than the Death of Superman (as I already stated in my previous post). Obviously the movie wouldn't be taken word for word or panel to panel from start to finish for the entire run of the comic series. Not every comic adaptation does that. So I am sure they would add the necessary layers so that it could be a normal or emotionally driven film. Which is the point I am trying to make.
In other words: You have to look beyond what it is, and see it for what it could be. That is if you are a good screen writer with a descent imagination that is.
