Allow me to tell you what I disliked so much about Batman v Superman:
It was two and a half of hours of relentless cynicism. More important to what I'm trying to explain was that BvS is a movie co-featuring Superman where the principal creatives guiding him seem to hate him.
When Superman appears on screen, the first thing you should ever feel is relief.
Relief that things are going to get better.
Not dread. You should not be met by a man who meets threats with threats. Superman does not break people. Superman doesn't allow you to live. He lifts us up.
His mission is to show humanity the greatness contained within.
This was not Superman. This was a man so unsure of himself that he keeps, just KEEPS hiding himself away. After threatening to break humanity.
This was a man who just never seems able to find a better way.
This just wasn't Superman.
This was something I was relieved to see put out of its misery.
