No... that's what I literally just said.

But if they'd do it in a non-shared universe far away from MOS, then yeah, let it all out JL-style. But it doesnt sound like that's what they're doing.
1. It's not absolutely definite that MOS and JL will be connected. It's very probable, which is why i'm hoping JL just never gets off the ground. I want Superman to have his own good run of films. He deserves that.

BUT, if they HAVE to have Cavill, that doesn't make me suddenly want no WW in the film.

2. What is so much more misplaced about WW's origin in a JL movie than GL or MM? Seriously can somebody explain that to me?

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.'
