Default Re: Is anyone else not excited about Superman and Batman? I feel nothing but dread.

TBH, the visuals is not a high priority for me anymore. I just want a better writer.

I think Snyder did a good job with the visuals here... though I still want him gone, cause of how much of a hand he had in changing the ending so Superman would kill Zod.

The success of Mavel's movies is not some kind of "threat" to WB, it is merely an exemplar of what WB could do with its DC properties.

And I hope they don't follow suit.
They already have.

'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.'
