Here is the full quote:

Now I realize Superman is a huge title character for DC and the characters being discussed here related to Marvel are not nearly as huge, but I think all comic characters whether they be Marvel or DC properties should be celebrated and that they shouldn't feel the need to be apologetic to general audiences about them. I think if these companies had more faith in their characters people would love the characters just the way they are.

Sorry, just had to say that one last thing and I promise I'm done until after I have seen the movie. Hoping I love it.

Where is he cheerleading Snyder? He goes out of his way to say that all of the companies that deal with comic book adaptations need to show more faith in the characters. That would include WB/DC. I don't see how anything he said in that post makes him a blind DC follower like you accused him of being.
