Reboot vs. Remake vs. Requel vs. Revival vs...

You know how sometimes you just feel like making a Venn diagram about something trivial?  I felt that way earlier today.

No real rhyme or reason to the examples I chose.  Maybe someday I'll get really ambitious and try to fill out each section more completely.

I'm not quite sure where Superman Returns should go on here.  I am pretty sure this was just another one of my procrastination tricks.  I'd love any feedback you have, though!

Back to work now...

(EDIT:  Oh, I should probably get "Reimagining" on here somewhere, shouldn't I?  I think the whole thing might topple...)


  1. Love a good Venn diagram. For me, Superman Returns was a sequel/revival, rather than a reboot, as it was clearly (?) meant to revive the wonderful Christopher Reeve version of Superman.

    1. That's a good call, and now that you mention it, I don't know why I didn't at least have that on the border of "revival." I mean, it has "Returns" in the name, so that should have been a clue for me! (I was probably also biased by an inclination to never think Superman is in need of "revival"...!)
