    Sounds like Cavil and the people behind BvS don’t really understand Superman that well.

      78 years of Superman… can they really cover every single bit of that character in 2 movies?
      According to “critics” who hated it, they should stick to the goofy golden age Superman from Donner’s movies and ignore the comics completely.
      He killed Zod with a smile on his face. But when he does it in Man of Steel, it’s wrong and bad.
      They criticize a character they simply don’t understand.
      They gave freaking Superman Returns a higher score for God’s sake.

        Exactly. The goofy Clark from the Donner movies was outdated even back then. I remember, as a kid, thinking how silly the movies were, even though I liked them. They were almost done tongue-in-cheek.

        I much more prefer this new take on the DC characters.

        No one wants a goof golden age Superman. They went full opposite when they should be somewhere in between.

        Superman Returns is just a better overall film. I can’t say that I like it more but I can see why critics gave it better reviews.

      I disagree. What they are presenting makes sense to a real world rather than the goofy, golden age like Inkaten mentioned.

        No one wants a goofy golden age Superman. They went totally opposite of that when they should be somewhere in between.
