Save the DCEU, get rid of Superman

By on September 16, 2016

Save the DCEU, keep Superman dead. Yes I said it, don’t bring Superman back.

Admit it to your self, you liked the Justice League special footage trailer from ComicCon. It showed heroes who where easy going and in over their heads, dark or not it worked. Batman and Wonder Woman are on a recruiting mission to save the world, simple enough. For me, that can be the entire movie, I’m good because I believe their dynamic personalities can carry the movie.

The elephant in the room.
Remember this: ”Next time they shine your light in the sky, don’t go to it. The Bat is dead. Bury it. Consider this mercy.”

And this: ”Stay down! If I wanted it, you’d be dead already!”

Let’s not bring that guy back, I’m talking about mr. Killjoy. Zack Snyder’s Superman is in a place where all the moving parts are so broken, replacing him with Green Lantern would be the best thing for the team and the franchise.

Remember this: ”Superman was never real. Just the dream of a farmer from Kansas.”

And this: “I’ll take you in without breaking you. Which is more than you deserve.”

Let’s not bring this guy back.

I think it was in the best interest of the Justice League’s first appearance to not have Superman in the trailer (dead or resurrected) because it gave the clip “breathing room” to let us enjoy other DC characters. Now that it’s obvious to movie goers that Superman can’t be killed off, we don’t have to tolerate the dude just because he’s there.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

It felt like progress not having Superman in the JL trailer (special footage), the 3:06 minutes of entertainment didn’t feel like yet another Superman clean up mission. Riddle me this? if Clark is not punching the baddies as Superman, what else is he good for? His the big gun with baggage, ain’t nobody got time for that. Bruce Wayne is a useful resource to Batman’s investigations. What use is Clark in the grand scheme of things?

At this point, the world is better off without him, other capable heroes that movie goers are willing to pay to see can take it from here.

I ask you, how terrible would it be to have the Justice League without Superman?
