Does anyone else kind of hope Intergang plays a part in later movies?
I just think it'd provide a lot of interesting story possibilites, and although I love the sci-fi aspects as well, I really wanna see see Supes fighting the problems we have here at home - Lex Luthor and Intergang have always been the personification of corruption, organised crime, greed, injustice etc.
Not to mention Mannheim's links to Darkseid
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.'
