Joe Kerr April 4, 2016 at 6:53 PM I think the portrayal of a rather melancholic Superman in BvS, really disappointed a lot of fans and critics (that were paid off by Marvel, to give negative reviews). I think that showing the character’s more optimistic side, even while being hated on by some people, would have really improved the film, and highlighted the differences between Supes and Batman. Perhaps Lex Luthor’s role could have been slightly reduced to discovering Kryptonite, creating Doomsday, and monitoring Metahumans. And then you could have thrown out the Africa subplot, to try and frame Superman. And kinda stuck to what the trailers set-up. Superman thinking that Batman’s a dangerous vigilante, while Batman’s been prepping for almost two years, in anticipation of either Superman getting in his way, or Superman turning against mankind. Even though BvS wasn’t able to reach it’s full potential critically, or at the box-office. I think that for Justice League, Zack Snyder will almost be forced to tell a more “FUN” comic booky type of movie, because he’ll have so many more interesting characters to introduce. Unlike Scoot McNairy’s character in BvS! Who was PERFECTLY set-up to become Metallo in the film, but like so many other potentially cool things, Zack Snyder held it back.
