What's lacking here isn't "imagination", but something else. Perhaps what you went on to describe.
I think this is a semantic arguement. And I always find those moot. I don't think we particularly disagree. I'm not saying 'he's an idiot with no creative imagination whatsoever'. I'm just saying his imagination obv doesn't extend to a DC world on screen.

'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.'
