well its not just that, people, myself included, don't like the dc movies because of the writing. I hated man of steel and batman vs superman because of the writing and what they did to the superman lore. seriously where's the crystals? the fortress? that's still used in every form of superman media EXCEPT these movies, its ridiculous.
You mean like how Marvel rewrote several major character origins, powers, and even relationships?
Ultron being a product of Banner and Stark with an infinity stone and not Pym and his genius mind.
Spider-Man unable to make his own gear and having friends with people who don't really exist...Michelle Jones?
Hulk and Black Widow relationship? At least Cap and Black Widow had a love life together. They even had a son named James Rogers.
2 words: The Mandarin?
The Ancient One being a bald white woman?
Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being Hydra experiments?
Civil War being more of a personal vendetta of Stark being a little baby. Especially since he caused most of problems the government is complaining about.Spi
Thanos entire character change: Movie: "I did it to save and bring peace to the universe." Comic: "I did it for the nookie."
Spider-Man joining Iron Man in the movies while he joined Captain America in the comics.
and on and on and on.
So, it is okay for Marvel to change or even completely rewrite several aspects, but not okay for DC to do the same? Superman doesn't get his crystal palace is a deal breaker for you, but Tony Stark killing people with his hubris is not? Or perhaps this is one of those "It is okay if Marvel does it, but DC has to stick to absolute lore."
The arguments are tiring.
"We want Superman to change because we are tired of hearing the old story over and over again."
*Changes aspects of Superman including who he is dating.*
"How dare they change Superman, he needs to stay pure to his original story."
There was nothing wrong with Man of Steel. To me, people were too engrossed in Marvel's "All comedy, no real edge."
It's funny how people wanted Superman to be more like Goku because "being a pure boy scout is boring," but as soon they give Superman a kind of realism where the villains are actually...you know....VILLAINS....they complain that it is no longer Superman.
Which is it? Man of Steel plays out very similar to how Superman Birthright comic occurs or even All-Star Superman and yet no one has a problem with that. Either people don't read enough Superman comics or their entire concept of Superman is based solely on the Animated Series. Also funny how you seem to have no problem with Batman killing people...even though in the comics he maintains that killing is wrong and feels that if he ever killed someone...there would be no going back for him.
plus how superman caused all those people to die when he killed zod, how like 9/11 the movie was with the destruction. there were alot of things wrong with those movies. I still prefer the old school superman movies any day over these new ones, even if they were weird. marvel on the other hand you have the situation with the captain marvel movie. both dc and marvel have their sets of problems.
Kind of reminds me of all the deaths the Avengers caused in the Chitauri war, the Age of Ultron, Civil War, Infinity War, and so on and so forth. Most of these were caused by the Avengers themselves.
I guess only Superman is held accountable for his mistakes while everyone else gets a free pass...even if one of them caused the whole problem in the first place coughstarkcough.
Funny, there is a pattern here.
Tony Stark builds Ultron that causes the death of thousands of people and constantly pisses off the US government:
"Captain America is dangerous. He needs to be put on a leash."
Batman, Lex Luthor, Joker, other villains, and other aliens cause problems in the world, killing people, and more.
"Superman has to be stopped. If there is even 1% chance he could go bad, we have to take that as absolute certainty."
But, hey, I'd like to see the Avengers stop global destruction on their first day with no training.
