Oh, did you want Superman to be a shining light of morality in a harsh and cruel world? Screw that candy-ass ****. Superbro is gonna crush some buildings and give zero ****s about collateral damage. Grittiness: unlocked.
Zack Snyder's signature recipe: Take one happy-go-lucky superhero, blast him with a fire hose of muck, then order him to brood or he gets the Kryptonite."

Drew Magary clearly wasn't impressed with the film, interesting way to go about all of this though. He could have just joined a forum and made a post like the rest. The funniest part is how it all comes down to Snyder. Looks like the stars alined and drew found his opportunity.
That was funny but this guy obviously doesn't know anything about modern Superman. I dont know everything about Superman either but i guess i know more than he does.
People like that just exaggerate because they think it sounds cool or funny. Was MOS grittier than previous Superman movies or the big Marvel movies? Sure. Sucking the joy out of every frame? There were one-liners, packed action. Pretty much the entire last act was a gigantic continuous fight scene that A LOT of people got a kick out of actually. Did Clark brood? Yes, but he's learning how to be Superman and accept who he is. This guy is just a doucher.
"Guys, what would be your reaction if Alfred was Batgirl in this movie? You go watch the movie, everything cool, halfway through, Alfred becomes Batgirl."
