I mean, I feel pretty confident about MOS as it stands. But JL just adds this uncertainty to the future of the MOS franchise. We might get this one amazing film... then JL, which could be a complete trainwreck, would be part of that franchise if Cavill where involved... and then we could end up, further down the line, with an attempt at an MOS sequel that is the equivilent to B&R

I would be happy with that, but there is absolutely no way in hell they will do that. Batman and Superman are the main selling points of the team... people will come and see it just because it has them in. Without them, people may not bother.

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.'
