Default Re: Batman as a Vehicle for the Surveillance State

Not really. This is not television. They spent several years creating Man of Steel. I should not have to wait for a sequel to judge how they handled the character or any subtext therein. And when it came to creating parallels to our world or "grounding" it, their results were messy, lazy and ugly. More a reach toward something "cool" than intellectually interesting.

And I actually liked that Superman movie! Just judging this part of it fairly.
