I hated Man of Steel (and I really wanted to like it, as I like the idea of a darker/more realistic Superman). I am going to be forever bitter that SR wasn't a success and didn't get followed up with at least a couple of sequels.
Couldnt agree more with bolded, I still love SR and still watch it once every few months, it was the movie that got me into Superman in a big way, and it will always have a special place in my heart.

I loved MOS also though, and think it was a better starting off point for a franchise than SR.
