Re: Henry Cavill IS Superman: - Part 10
I'm not sure. He's mentioned Red Son every time he was asked what material he's read. I think he also mentioned reading the New Krypton saga.
It may be that those just happen to be the ones that pop into his head, or it may be as you said, he has been told to steer away from mentioning the ones that are closest to the plot.
P.S. Where in Somerset are you from Glassjaw?
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.'
