very mixed????
I would say it was overwhelmingly positive with a minority that didn't like it. Just because people make a meme about it doesn't mean they hate it.

I am hoping they hold off on that...once I see the WW suit I will begin my self imposed news blackout on this film. I'll probably not come into these boards again.

It seems mixed because, like usual, people who don't like something don't stop talking about it.

Hi roach, its up for the filmmakers to convince the audience they have a project worthy of rallying for. And I do give each new film a chance but its hard to top classics.

And yes the reaction has been very mixed - some people liked it, some loved it. Many remain unconvinced - which is natural, its going to take a lot more than some black and white picture to turn around public reaction.

I'll hang around, since I don't really have anything else to do.

These boards have been rejuvenated, thanks to filming; I'll be sticking with them way after the film's release.

I think so! Comic book writers are not better than Hollywood writers and neither are the ones on these boards. No offense to anyone, but there is a reason why the guys in Hollywood make that much money and the majority of comic book writers just do that, write comics.

One of my favorite things about the movie was that there WAS destruction, it is the only thing that really made sense. How is it a threat to the world if Superman saves everyone or people barely get hurt? Did they want Zod to blow on some people and form a little hurricane where people only fall but no one dies? Would that have been better? Or people standing around looking at the destruction and buying ice cream and working at KFC while the world is being destroyed like they didn't notice anything?

At least in Man of Steel no one as standing around behind barricades (like in Superman II or Spider-Man looking at cops shooting at people or whatever from behind barricades. Hi, bullets can hit people through barricades. And is it just me or in Spider-Man did the police just travel with barricades and set them up in an instant so people could watch cops shoot at the electric guy or whatever the threat was? I don't know why the hero in the movie needs to have an audience in the movie watching him do what he does. Do we, the audience need to see another audience in the movie cheering for the hero also? An audience looking at an audience looking at the hero is not necessary.

When it comes to the reveals/articles, I'm all in favor of them since I love them. For me it doesnt ruin the excitement, just adds to the expectation and its also fun hearing about other people's opinions on what they are expecting/wanting to see in the movie.

I only like other people's opinions if they are the same as mine.

I don't see the correlation between some memes and the quality of the suit.

again. I don't think it's mixed. My travels around the inter webs have shown a favorable opinion of the suit. However let's go to our bat suit thread and check the poll (as of right now)
157 people said they like it...that's 65.97%
63 people said it was good...26.47%
16 people said meh...6.72%
2 people said they didn't like it.....84%

now I realize that this website doesn't speak for everybody but do those numbers say mixed to you?

I dont think it was mixed. In fact reactions are mostly positive and has been trending very well on the Internet this past week (just look at the polls on this forum and others) . Just because a handful of folks, who more than likely don't want to see any CBM's or, in particular, the DC pictures succeed doesn't mean that what they have done so far with this production has failed. The data is just saying the opposite.

This is kind of a cop-out and a bit unfair though. We're here to discuss these films are we not?

And I'm sick of the MOS discussion too. I think we all are. But since the most we have to go on for BvS is what has been established with that film, the discussion is still valid.

It's just people trying to dissect why MOS got such an unfair assault online and from critics last year. Especially when all these other genre film showed similar visuals and got off scotch-free and universally lauded. There's a distinction here, and it's Zack Snyder. And if we want BvS to be the best it can be and recognize Snyder's growth it's pointing out where he needs to improve.

In before:

This board is a small sample size...

We are just hardcore fans...

Well, the rest of the internet is saying...

Like yourself roach, I also travel around the web chatting to lots of friends and people and yes the reaction has been mixed. People notice and observe different things - which is natural. I personally dont understand the Sad Batman thing - He's supposed to be sad and intense. If anything I would be more alarmed had they uploaded a smiling Batman, y'know? But again WB are wanting to turn around the negative press, which I completely understand which is partly why the release was done so early. But for myself its hard to get excited by b&w - I want something in color.

But pointing out where Snyder needs to improve on a website he more than likely doesn't read means nothing.

A Sad Batman meme is not indicative of the suit having a bad or "mixed" reaction.

I'm not sure how well traveled on the internet you are, but people make memes out of everything and anything. They're just poking fun of the brooding nature of Batman, which is not a new phenomenon.

Everything we post on here means nothing.

But it's what we can gather, discuss, agree/disagree upon, adds to appreciation and understanding of these films and the strength and weaknesses of the people behind them.

I was kidding. I thought it was obvious, but I will be a little bit more clear, next time, for the humourless posters.

The general feeling of your friends and people may be mixed but that does not mean the overall feeling on the suit is mixed. If my friends and I loved Catwoman and everyone else did not...does that mean the overall consensus is that Catwoman is/was loved???

What negative press was WB trying to turn around?

It got such an unfair result from critics because it wasn't what they were expecting from a Superman film. The truth of the matter is thst the film was a box office success and garnered the confidence from the studio execs to make a sequel, and if rumors are indeed true, a third picture, which will be the Superman and the Justice League.
