Hardcore traditionalist Superman fans are already railing about a few of what they perceive to be huge errors on the part of -produced, -directed Man of Steel, including, but not limited to, the fact Superman is not wearing red underwear (Seriously, people are pissed. Real pissed), and the fact that he is being played by a Brit (Five bucks says those same people forget that the actors most recently playing the roles of Batman, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Thor are also not American).
So it's probably not going to help these classic Supes fans breathe any easier to know that not only are the red tights gone, so is the kryptonite. Wait, what?
As Snyder revealed to EW, "I'll be honest with you: there's no Kryptonite in the movie."
Superman himself, , explains a little further:
Although he is not susceptible to the frailties of mankind, he is definitely susceptible to the emotional frailties.
Well... alright then. Just please don't turn him emo. Please. We've seen what happens when they get emo, and it's just not a good time for anyone.
So there you have it. What do you think? Are you angry about the lack of kryptonite?
Man of Steel flies into theaters on June 14th, so we have two months to see if this all comes together.
