why do they overlook it? well...because he ain't batman , don't get me wrong i loved the action scenes, they brought up my inner 10 year old and left me hungry for more. Now im not a hater i liked how Snyder made him more human but sups always been the boy scout i guess its hard for people to see him outside of that role....plus he's superman he could have taken zod out of the city at least or some random BS because he can, he did it with bizarro lol
Yeah, he's Superman and all. But Zod is Zod, and he was rightfully portrayed as a formidable villain. Not to mention, MoS was Superman's origin. He had just begun exploring his full potential. And then there's the fact that Zod destroyed 99% of the city before Superman even began chasing him through [most-likely evacuated] buildings.
It's like everyone listened to that fat dickhead Kevin Smith nerd-rage all over the movie for something he didn't even think through, then we suddenly got bandwagons of his vapid lemmings regurgitating the same criticism. Don't get me wrong, the film is certainly not without its flaws, but the issues about the destruction of Metropolis irk me. If Snyder's Superman could turn back time, Zod would be the most trivial villain ever, and the former's heroism wouldn't be dramatic. There needs to be some kind of balance.
