Re: "Joyless" ?
My problem with the film being "joyless",is less about the amount of humor,(which,lets be honest,there wasn't all that much of.) but more about the lack of exhilaration at being Superman.Supe is one of the more positive,uplifting characters,and for the most part he's rendered ineffectual and somber.
We always need to hear Both Sides of the story.
How did we get this far? Human beings have an immeasurable desire....for FF to return to Marvel.
2/9/15 Spider-Man comes home! You're next FF!
