Soulless is the word I'm looking for.
Agreed; plus, it doesn't help that by all accounts, we've seen nor heard anything to suggest that those involved and in charge of the project actually got together to map up a general outline at least on how this will all work, with Superman's own solo films going into this new world as well.
Marvel, for their semi hits and semi misses, took more time and care of getting things organized so that things would flow smoothly into the big ensemble.
Not to mention, there's no way of knowing on how every other hero will be received, let alone the actors that are portraying them. At least with "The Avengers", Marvel had time to change or tweak the characterization of their characters if they needed to upon critical response to their portrayals.
Man, if a JLA film ruins MOS's sequel, especially if MOS turns out to be a BIG HIT, then truly, one must wonder if Superman will ever have two great back to back films where the studios involved didn't get involved and mess things up.
