I'm really happy with how Kara and Mike's relationship developed in this series. I was afraid he'd be killed or some other cliched plot device would be used on one of my favorite supporting characters. I'm glad to see that the tired routes weren't taken regarding Mike.
So what could he say about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?
Not even from a fashion perspective? Surely there was some costume envy. With all that black, Batman has a much more chic look. And external underpants have never caught on.
"I'm incredibly loyal to my character," says Cavill, with genuine conviction. "I love him. I'm protective of him. Superman's the dude. He's an absolute ledge. I'd never say, ĎI'd prefer to be that superhero.' I'm Superman."
It is amazing how many ďSuperheroesĒ† in big budget "Superhero" movies barely do anything heroic. In some, they are the cause of the problem.
The blurry line of what makes up a Superhero worries me. Looking cool has become more important than doing right. I'm all for gritty superheroes but we need happy ones too. I donít want to see gritty become the norm. That's not what superheroes are about.
When Superman snapped Zodís neck in Man of Steel, I was sadly kind of numb to it. The direction things were going, I was not too surprised. What did surprise me was the audiences reaction. People didnít want to see Superman kill.†That gave me hope.
