I think there a lot of ways to define a place as a pub:

- Daytime drinkers and 'locals' (guys that literally spend whole days in there drinking beer)
- Bar stools & 'barflies' (people who always sit around the bar - usually guys who come in on their own and sit and read the paper and maybe make conversation with he barmaid).
- Teams I.e. Darts, Pool etc.

It's also a bit about the look of the place. Lots of wood and cotton cusioned chairs and big bulky bars. Lots of pubs have odd things collected and displayed - mini spirit bottles, novelty shot glass or mugs, awards and cups from their teams wins etc.

I've worked in several proper pubs, and I absolutely love them and do miss them in the city. It's just not the same.

'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.'
