Well that's exactly what I meant by 'it depends on how he's characterised'.

If he is shown to be purely emotionless AI, then I think taking him down doesn't involve 'killing'... it involves shutting off a computer.

But the more 'humanoid traits they give him, or if they go down the route that he actually is a living being, then it's totally different.

Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'

It was less a retcon than a reveal, IMO.
