You can't have Gods and Mythical creatures in the Man of Steel world, it doesn't fit, it would be like having wizards in a Terminator movie. Krypton is the easiest pathway to uniformity. So no it's not lazy, it's logical and frankly brilliant because it's eliminates the need for convoluted justification as to why a character is doing something that contradicts the world set up in the previous movie. If you don't like the idea that's fine, but just because something is easier option doesn't make it lazy, if anything it makes the possibility of a better film being produced.
No, it's illogical that you think those other characters can't fit and have to adhere to MoS' sci-fi beginnings. This is NOT the MoS world. This is the DCCU. Separate movies about other heroes don't have to adhere to anything except for their own mythologies. They don't have to play by any rules! The universe of Terminator firmly established itself as sci-fi with no place for magic. How can you start making declarations like that when the DCCU is in its infancy? We haven't really seen s**t yet to start making up rules!

I'm sure people said the same things about Thor or aliens appearing when Iron Man came out. It's like you people need to be shown these movies to actually believe it can work. Crazy.

lol, Iron Man is pure sci-fi and down-to-earth. There's nothing "neutral" about it. That's only easy for you to say now because you know it's part of a whole MCU. I can't comprehend your logic. You're saying MoS was never intended to be a part of a DCU(how do you know this?), and yet, now it is. That's all that matters. They are fully welcome to introduce magic and other things without it being "against the rules", because as far as we know, there are no rules in the DCCU yet.
