This a sad day if true. I loved his performance as Superman and Man of Steel is one my all-time favorite superhero films mainly due to him.

Really? What did you like about it? The hilariously misguided attempts at moralizing? The wanton destruction? I mean, it really wasn't a good movie except visually. Had it been anything other than a Superman movie it could have been good, but as a Superman movie it pretty much failed in every way. 

I disagree. I loved the way they chose to show Clark's past and his interactions with both of his fathers, That along with the spectacular battles made it an incredibly memorable experience and one of my top superhero movies.



Man of Steel was a really good Superman movie. It's a shame WB went and messed it up. This whole thing is vexing.



Not surprised at all.

The DCEU in general has been so mishandled and rushed, I legitimately don't even know where they can go from here now that they've also lost their Superman. 

Full on reboot seems like it would be the clear answer, but they also have Aquaman and Shazam! coming out soon so I guess they're gonna wait and see how those do?

DC should just stick to making animated features for the time being.

+1!

When you watch something like Batman/Superman public enemies and then watch the tragic Batman vs Superman DC film it's just saddening to think what night have been if the dcu movies weren't Zack Snider'd into Oblivion.



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

He's quite average actor, so I guess no big deal.
Unfortunately, he's the one that Netflix picked to portray Geralt, which is pretty terrible choice IMO.

And not being a DC fan, what I've seen of the animated stuff have impressed me.  And the CW stuff has been good, but it's gotten fairly stale for me since it's been going one for so long.  Maybe it's reached saturation.



WB ruined the DCEU the minute they trusted Zack Snyder. DC characters are so good and wealthy in stories but WB wanted to rush everything. Seriously why on Earth would you start a cinematic universe with Superman killing someone and an old Batman?



Zack Snyder being fired was the start of all this nonsense. He had a vision for these characters that we will never see realized... Sadly. He cast the best Superman with Cavill, the best Batman with Affleck, great Wonder Woman, and great supporting characters... What could have been...

Now we are just getting a Marvel 2.0 (I love MCU, but the DC movies started with their own distinct feel to them, which I loved). I don't know why people want more of the same.

WB is so disorganized its not even funny. Just reboot the damn thing now. The WHOLE thing.

But since WB doesn't really care about consistency, maybe this means we will get Snyder's cut of Justice League. I hope so.
