I don't think it was revamped footage, but it was meant to invoke that scene. The finale paid definite homage to the Roth movie, Reeve's Superman (with the music), and even to the 1950s TV show ("Great Caesar's Ghost!").
Shinier than a speeding bullet.
I thought it was pretty good, and it ended appropriately.
The only part I found extremely anticlimactic was the end 'battle(s)' between Clark/Darkseid/Apokolips. I mean, they spent 2 full hours building up Darkseid and Apokolips as these unbeatable entities. Then Clark beats Darkseid in a few seconds via flying through him - afterward, he dons 'the suit', pushes Apokolips a smidgen out of earth's orbit, and that somehow averted the disaster?
Kind of weak, but I still liked the finale as a whole (particularly the scenes with Pa Kent.)
"The Grand Admiral was smart and subtle, but never used his brilliance to show up or humiliate anyone.
He demanded results, but never perfection, and had amazing stores of patience for those who were truly working to their fullest ability.
It was a pity Thrawn's style of leadership hadn't spread through the rest of the navy.
If that happened, he suspected, the Empire would stand forever."

I loved it, it weas very well done, especially by using the music by John Williams. Here's a question on the last show before the 2hr finale, with toyman he is seen talking to a group of people, and gives them a dossier with the whole justice league in it and says here are your targets. could they be thinking of doing a justice league spin off? seems kind of weird to show it and nothing would come of it.
I was a little disappointed. More than likely it was because I went into the finale being disappointed with a good portion of the series from season 6 onward. Please, before you attack, continue to read on.
Reasons I was disappointed with the finale
1) As was stated before, they never completely showed Tom in the suit. Only neck up views or wide shots where you could not see him in his entirety. At least once...
2) Since when can Darkseid be defeated by a double-fisted diving punch?
3) Mercy was around long after Clark took up the Superman moniker.
4) Clark and Lois getting married before he puts the suit on? No...
... I could go on, but I think you get where I am going with this. And, the reason I still watch and the reason I am not angry at the show is that not adaptation of any book, be it a novel or a comic, will ever remain 100% true to the original text. So, all in all, it was a little disappointing, but still a good way to close out the show. Well done.
They didnt. They wern't even married 7 years later (if I understood correctly)
A bit disappointed in the finale, as well as the final season. My biggest beaf, Not enough Lex. Also did Lex forget everything?! I didn't get that. They shouldn't have left unanswered questions like that in the Finale.
Also was hoping for more of the JL. Never saw MMH in last season, and I dnt even remember which was the last season we saw Impulse. Of course I wnt mind any of that if they do a JL series, but I wnt keep my hopes up!
