We’ve written in the past how many of the complaints people level at Man of Steel are completely wrong, and now it looks like Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will address some other concerns people have.
Badass Digest has heard that two of the biggest things people use to bash Man of Steel will be wiped away via dialog in the sequel:
When Superman confronts a big bad guy and unravels his plot, he tells the villain, “I won’t snap your neck, I’m going to take you to prison,” an on-the-nose response to criticisms of the first movie. Of course Superman later loses his cool and threatens to break the bad guy’s back, so he hasn’t quite internalized everything yet.
As for being a protector of the people – when the Doomsday fight starts General Swanwick tells the military that Superman will move the battle away from populated areas because he’s a hero, and that’s what heroes do. Again, this is a direct response to complaints about the first film.
Of course, people will still love to bash Man of Steel. Otherwise they’d actually have to try to enjoy the movie instead of complaining about it constantly online.
