The thing is that Superman works best in a world where there are OTHER heroes to focus on. He works on Justice League, not solo.

Batman and Wonderwoman were both in Red Son. But seriously, go read Red Son.

Noone "works" in that world. Don't tell people that, they'll believe it. People are stupid.

I'm glad I'm not a hardcore Superman nut, because knowing that Zack Snyder is in control for the foreseeable future would be bleak.

Gotta love that Soundgarden music cue when Clark grabbed some flannel; Who says this movie was overly humorless?

I like how Clark just steals those clothes. Can't hold down a job and is basically a shiftless hobo.

Superman? More like Super BUM.

Can we talk spoilers now for a momment?

Why are people so upset about Superman Killing Zod if the same thing happens in Superman II ? A movie, BTW, that people are using as a flagship to say "Better than man of steel".

Really?!

My only problem with it is that, given how much time the movie put into selling them both as completely invulnerable, what with them smashing into buildings and flying into space and then plowing right back down to Earth and being just fine, that it was even possible to snap Zod's neck, even for Superman. Granted, Goyer had pretty much written himself into a corner on that one, but it was just a resolution that I somehow couldn't suspend my disbelief within the internal logic of the rest of the movie.

Also leveling Metropolis totally sets up for the next movie and I get why they did it and am even kinda looking forward to how it could play out despite my better judgment, but in giving Lex Luthor a leg to stand on about letting a godlike alien just fly around, I still don't really enjoy leaving the theater thinking, "Damn, Superman, you lame."

Azisien can secretly fly, but doesn't, because it would make everyone else feel bad that they can't.

I thought the neck snap was fine, I mean, it had to be resolved somehow. I'm not into the Superman mythos at all really, but I was glad the movie got away with no Kryptonite at all. That is one of the most annoying plot devices with Superman. With the Zod kill though, I figured, Super Duper Strong vs. Super Duper Strong, it's still possible to kill one another. Zod probably took Superman to a "new level" at that point too, as the movie makes it clear both of them (and Zod much faster) are still tapping into their potential.

Nice Luthor stage set too, damn, I did not think of it that way, but that would be a good way to introduce him. Again, I know little about them, but if this big mega-rich guy shows up rebuilding everyone's homes and so on and is like "Hey y'all I'm the real superhero around here, he's just an alien" that could work as a premise. My fingers are crossed for no Kryptonite bullcrap, though I'm not sure how normal humans would challenge him, it seems to be near universal in all the non-comic exposure I've seen. Clever writing from Goyer... yeesh....


edit: After some reflection, I really didn't care for the 100,000 AD Nanite PowerPoint presentation explaining 90% of Krypton's history in 2 minutes, something about that whole scene came off as rushed (probably the 2 minutes) and a little lame. I guess AI-Jor-El was on short notice though, and just threw something together real quick.
