I was just trying to think of an apt metaphor for the situation, but you're so right! This is the Lazarus pit for Superman fans... they give us a glimmer of hope, and every day we think we just have to work a little bit harder to get a little bit closer... but we know it can drop right back down again at any point, and really we have no control...
'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
