People need to get over the fact this isn't a donner film. It's a reinterpretation. And it is supposed to be darker. Why? how would an alien fit into the culture of this planet? he is realized as someone who would be very isolated, and afraid not only of the world, but his own powers. Superman isn't a comedian, he is no Iron Man. There is existential crisis in his character. People say "oh it's too serious, too dark" Whatever. Get with the reality of how this character might inhabit this world if he did exist in it. Superhero films are supposed to be entertaining, but that doesn't mean they all need to be semi-comedy. Watch iron man for that. Some superhero films dig deeper for a meaning we can maybe relate too..if we weren't so afraid of that meaning.
This is the biggest film of the year. So no doubt it has the biggest bullseye on it's head. And a man in tights is easy to hate on. It's just that stigma. Superman in America's eyes is supposed to be perfect. Now because this Superman isn't, it seems people cry foul. Noone is perfect, not even critics.
