THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS HUGE SPOILERS FROM BATMAN V SUPERMAN
Since superman is an iconic character and probably the most known superhero in society among batman or spiderman, his death was shocking and people have sure mixed thoughts about it. Me? I personaly don't hate superman, but i feel he is little too overpowered for a cinematic universe...So his death, although i was sad and shocked at the moment he died, later on, i realised that it was a good move...
And here are some arguments. Some of these are not facts, just my opinions and thoughts.
Man of steel is dead. People who aren't familiar with doomsday and aren't fans of DC, just know superman as an iconic character are shocked. How did Superman die? Fans that are familiar with doomsday are shocked as well....Everyone just wonders if DC really killed him. SUPERMAN...
Superman as a character doesn't really bring attention to the wide audience...But his death? DC has all attention man...Superman died there, superman died here...Everywhere...And what better thing could DC do to really boost their extended universe?
2. BRAVE MOVE
DC showed that it's ready to kick ass....By killing their iconic character they showed that they can do great movies without him. That they are ready to give us best rated movies even without superman...
Are they really going to make it? Is justice league going to be good without superman? Who knows, but DC seems pretty sure...And i believe them.
3. SUPERMAN IS OVERPOWERED
Let's face it. Superman was created when overpowered superheroes weren't a problem because it was something new. But i think that Supersuperheroes don't belong to cinematic universe. So getting rid of superman will give us little more "real" superheroes.
4. MORE SPACE FOR OTHERS
Without superman we will see more of all these great superheroes. More batman, more wonder women, more flash, more whatever. Superman has a lot of attention and without him, other superheroes will have to have it.
5. MAN OF STEEL
And by that i mean the movie. Noone liked it. "Worse superman" is gone. Man of steel wasn't really part of the new cinematic universe. So get rid of him. The fact that man of steel is gone means that we actually start again. Plain book. And DC is ready to fill it. Isn't that awesome?
6. HE DIED BEAUTYFULY
When superman died it was a sacrifice. It was an awesome sequence. And afterwords it was awesome. I was shocked but i enjoyed how they showed two funerals...
7. JUSTICE LEAGUE
I can't imagine better motivation. Batman saying he failed superman alive and he won't fail him dead was beautyful. Say whatever, but we are now sure that batman will do everytthing to form the justice league and i love this concept. The whole idea is strong. Much better than just batman with superman saying "oh, this doomsday destoryed few buildings, we have to find others like us.
Well, those were some arguments for people who might not see anything good behind supermans death. Don't get me wrong, i still see a lot bad in his death, but i also see soemthing great and big.
