    Well I liked his green lantern work, the Sinestro Corp war in particular, so I suppose we just have different tastes. But he hasn't gotten to where he has because most people agree with you

    Really?

    I found MOS one of the biggest offenders to the original idea of what was Superman.

    So much wrong with that film.

    It felt like they tried to hard to create an edgey, dark Superman based on the success of the Nolan Batman films.

    Unfortunately that's not what Superman is. And why it won't work. Meaning he's not dark nor grim.

    Watching he and Zod smash each other through buildings populated with people without any regard felt very much out of character for Superman.

    Part of his handicap when fighting another god should be that he has to help the people during the fight.

    That's part of what made the Superman 2 fight so great...is that Zod recognized this fact and used it against Superman.

    Another issue I had was my brain shut off once Zod and Supes smashed eachother through the 3rd or 4th building with no harm or cost. Why the hell should I care about anything in this fight if nobody gets hurt???

    In the comics they tatter up his suit when he fought Doomsday...gave Supes a bloody nose and some scratches. I think it's completly fine and on Canon to show Supes taking a toll during these fights.

    And Henry Cavil? The man cannot emote in these films. I'm not sure if it's the actor or the direction but he's about as personable as drywall. And his relationship with Lois felt forced and I didn't understand why they were suddenly so in love.

    What did I like about man of steel? I liked the first half hour where Supes kind of traveled from small job to small job saving people incognito. I think I could have watched a movie that feature more of that and maybe he only becomes Superman at the end?


    Anyways...I love Supes. I want his old outfit back. I want an actor who knows how to change their posture and their characer when he needs to play Kent. I don't want a suit with fake abs or over done with texture...I want a more classic look with bright colors (like Thor's red cape) And fuck off with telling me the Lois Lane love story already. I don't care about it.

    Yea I understand people didn't like this version of Superman but I actually enjoyed it. I just enjoyed the changes but I completely understand when others don't. I just always found the characteristics your described about Superman kind of dumb pretty much.

    Painful.

    That's like when Nicholson poisoned that news anchor with the Smilex formula.

    You gotta think Cavill is gonna think, "Is that what they think I look like?... IS THAT what I look like?"

    Nobody has seen Superman smile in these movies so we have no frame of reference!

    Watching how JL handled Cyborg maybe me think "this is how MOS should have gone."

    -protagonist conflicted by his newfound superpowers.
    -supportive dad loving, but feeling out of his league.
    - protagonist fearful that he may be the start of an alien invasion that he is unaware of yet.
    -super strength, super hearing, can fly, etc
    - "speak softly and carry a big plasma gun."

    Zach Snyder is obsessed with death. Superman has at least three funerals and a Day of the Dead homage. Not to mention being buried in skulls on MOS. Both BVS and JL open on funerals.

    From the script, directing and character design, everything was catastrophic.

    Bud, I have such a sour taste in my mouth over BvS. Wonderwoman was pretty decent and honestly took me by surprise (save the last 20 minutes of cgi crap) but I KNOW that the elements that made Gal Gadot as WW great can't possibly be in this film.

    Then you have two vastly different directors trying to put togehter a movie that shouldn't be coming out right now...I don't see what kind of appeal this movie could have for me to sit through it.
