In 2006, Fanboys complained that Superman Returns made Superman into too much of a big blue boy scout and asked for something darker in the vein of Batman Begins.

In 2013, Fanboys complained that Man of Steel was too dark and didn't portray Superman as a big blue boy scout.

Fanboys want it both ways more than early 70s David Bowie. Maybe Snyder is onto something ignoring them.

Everyone seems to agree that DC should be aping Marvel's Avengers strategy. Whether this is the way to go about it is another matter. I must be one of the few who doesn't see a need for an Avengers Lite. What's wrong with just doing standalone movies?

I thought with all of the heroes being added every month to Batman vs Superman, that it was the Justice League movie. If Bruce Timm and Paul Dini are involved I'll have hope for these 2 movies. Since they're not however I can hold off any glimmer of hope of these movies being decent.

I blame Marvel making good movies like Capt America 2 raising the bar for comic book movies, if they were making movies like the Fantastic 4 and Ang Lee's The Hulk then hell yeah i'd be excited for anything at this point.

Look people, I know that Batman: The Animated Series was an important part of your childhood and blah blah blah, but you have to become aware at some point that people who work on children's animation don't get promoted to live action feature films. That simply doesn't happen, so stop trying to make it happen with your pathetic wishful thinking.

Well, Brad Bird did come up from animation to get action flicks, but he's definitely an exception to the rule.
Other than that, your point stands. People that were involved in a cartoon that was cancelled 15 years ago don't often stay in the franchise's inner circle.

Joe Quesada is one of the top people on the MCU. He started as a comic book writer, and is responsible for some of the worst comics of all time. Going from animated director to live action is minor in comparison.

Who and the what now? I'm sorry, but most of the people who go to see (successful) comic book movies don't know what the hell you're talking about. They watch the comics on screen, they don't read them.

Well no, most people complained that the movie was boring as all fark and Superman mostly just flew around (and occasionally creepily stalked his ex) for two and a half hours.

That doesn't mean they wanted a joyless, violence-filled slog of a movie.

From the RT review page when Superman Returns came out:

"Certainly better than the atrocious third and fourth installments, but 'X-men' director Byran Singer's attempts at reinvigorating the dead franchise is a complete dud. The film uneasily treads the line between reboot and Singer's homage/sequel to the first two Richard Donner flicks when he should have just instead opted for a complete 'Batman Begins'-style reboot. "

And there are plenty more with that same sentiment on that page.

Dude, people were complaining about the tone being kids stuff before I even left the theater. There's no need for revisionism.

Snyder gave the folks that whined about Superman Returns exactly what they asked for, and they complained anyway.

I honestly think they have him around to write so that Joss Whedon can go "yeah Joe thanks great script, I had the other writers use it as what not to do and the movie was #1 for three solid weeks and made enough money to remake the movie with your script and still have money left over for Avengers 3".

Going by that quote they wanted a reboot instead of a homage to the old movies - nothing about tone is mentioned. I imagine Batman Begins was only brought up as an example of a recent successful reboot.

It's been demonstrated pretty definitively by the success of the Marvel movies that people are quite happy to go see superhero movies that aren't dark and edgy, they'd just prefer the movies be GOOD. The worst of the Marvel movies (either Iron Man 2 or The Incredible Hulk, IMHO) is still more fun to watch than Man of Steel.

Is it really trolling if you say something that's almost definitely true?  Short of Snyder ragequitting the project or suffering a fatal heart-attack Monty Python style it's just going to be another barely-written-at-all one-color-pallet muddy visual mess that's apparently about the Crime Syndicate universe rather than main-continuity DC.

stoli n coke: Snyder gave the folks that whined about Superman Returns exactly what they asked for, and they complained anyway.


Asking for a break from the Donner continuity is not the same as asking to make a Lobo movie with the S-logo accidentally duct-taped to the front.  We don't really need any more in-name-only adaptations, you have to at least grab one or two damned character elements form the source material.

Man of Steel could have been better. Could have been a whole hell of a lot worse, too.

Well they did. In fact there are a fair number found in the seas around Themyscira. Also dinosaurs aren't extinct in the DC universe (Dinosaur Island), or in the main Marvel universe (Savage Lands).

... but yeah, Zack Snyder, I'm expecting this will suck.

To call that cherry-picking would be too generous. The way you're reading that (which is itself arguable) bears little resemblance to the bulk of the complaints from the top critics on RT.

I didn't realize until this article that 'Superman vs. Batman' and 'Justice League' were definitely going to be separate movies.  Seemed like they had about a dozen superheroes for the first already.
