I think it would be a very similar movie if Zod had just fallen into the phantom zone.
With alot of these movies comes loud initial talking point controversy. I'm sure there was talk of 911isms/violence "controvery" post TDK in 'general news outlets'. That being you explanation I still don't see how it correlates to: the Superman fanbase is saying that MoS is a bad movie because "Superman killed"
If your statement about what the fanbase is literally
saying, as a whole is true, it stands to reason the fanbase is lame
