My opinion has absolutely nothing to do with the reboot. I've been saying those two opinions for years. Read my old posts in the Superman Returns threads and you'll see that I never adored the old Superman movies like others did.

And I'm sorry but if you think that Brando's lazy work in Superman was as good as his classic performance in A Street Car Named Desire, I do not know how to process that opinion.

I respond to this post because I'm sick of being insulted as a bandwagon jumper when I've never loved the Donner films and I never loved Brando in them. He got the job done and that is it. He couldn't even ****ing say Krypton correctly and I'm not allowed to say that I don't think he deserved an Oscar for that role because I might be called a dumb fanboy who likes the shiny new thing the best. Give me a break, my opinions aren't formed by popular demand.

And no I'm not mad at ya, I'm just defending myself against what I see as a slight.

And yeah, i'm really sick of it too.

'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.'
