    Having just gotten back here from reading the Batman vs Superman opinion piece, I’m just going to say that people will complain about anything. You could bring back the greatest directors in film history to work on superhero films and you’ll still find those who will do nothing but complain. DC has decided it wants to go with a serious and darker tone than the Marvel properties (which frankly are nothing but action sequences broken up by snarky quips and snappy comebacks). Snyder’s style seems to trend towards the dark and nihilistic. I rather like that but maybe it doesn’t quite resonate with fans who want light entertainment.

  2. I don’t disagree. In the age of the Internet, it’s easy to throw hate around.

    I grew up as a DC comics reader, and yet, now I find that I generally enjoy the Marvel films better than the DC ones. One glaring exception, THE DARK KNIGHT, which I really loved. And on TV, I’m really enjoying GOTHAM, which is not so much about Batman as it is a crime show set in a comic book world. I haven’t seen Batman v. Superman yet, but yeah, a superhero property takes a certain mindset to enjoy.
