I really hope that's true. I mean, I think the old theme is awesome... in the context of the old films. But it's like when Smallville tried to use it, it just felt really off.
I want something completely different, and I hope he delivers
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
