Does the Man of Steel do more good as a saviour swooping down from the sky or as a reporter exposing the evils of the world? Resignation is a talky, philosophical Superman fan film by production house The Shadow Gang that finds a combat photojournalist named Clark struggling to reconcile his decision to not intervene in life-or-death situations. He talks about it with another dude, who -- as far as I can tell -- is just a normal human.
Now, it's hard to watch a version of Superman that doesn't do something when someone's survival is at risk . But the most interesting thing about Resignation is the idea hanging there in its negative space: what did Superman endure that made him stop wanting to fly? Something to do with Lois, probably. It's almost always something to do with Lois, right?
