The generalization of the fanbases' reaction to SR is quite representative, not of everybody but of a significant number of people. A lot of people have said it's a bad movie because he doesn't land a single punch, look up some reviews online and some subsequent analysis, or better yet:
I wasn't disagreeing with that. I was referring to your generalization that the fanbase is arguing that MOS is bad film because Zod being killed. There is a certain contingent, yes, but an entire fanbase, no.
Now regardless of size of the negative reaction, a response to the killing in the sequel is an obvious given. A major plot point and character choice like that is introduced with the intent of it informing the story and character going forward.
