I was reading the Batman VS Superman articles in Empire today and the dream sequence sounds weird. Never thought I'd read about a dream sequence based on Westerns in a Batman film.

I like various Superman comics, the George Reeves television series, the first two Reeve movies (more now than I did as a kid), Lois & Clark, Superman Returns and Man of Steel. They're all different but they're all still Superman.

I wonder if there's a predominant "Superman" archetype though. Like a consensus among fans (and maybe even non-fans) as to what the essential components of Superman are. And at which point, you don't really have Superman. Which would impact the enjoyment for the "majority" (if there is one).

For instance, I could say: red and blue costume, cape, flying, strength, humanoid alien, good guy who doesn't kill. And that might be enough to be "essential Superman."

But then, at some point, you end up with a super shiny costume made out of metal and a Superman who looks like Nick Cage with long hair.

I love when Batman presses down on the accelerator as he's speeding to the Batcave. I miss those Batman-y moments. I don't think we'll ever get them again.

I'm a comic book fan and really the only books that this Superman can fit into would be the archiac Golden Age strongman and the current and much maligned New 52 version. One was phased out because the character needed to evolve, and the other was a shakeup that was hugely controversial and only a handful of stories that were printed since 2011 could be considered good and it's because they incorporated Silver Age themes. Every other variation shares virtually the altruistic boy scout,

Zack in his attempt to please the fandom, I feel will divide things further. Sure the movie fans and those that dabble in comics today, will believe what he has to say, but the long standing fans, the ones who have been reading for 20+ years will find fault with his defense. One side will claim that he just wants to bring back the Golden Age, an era that was suspended for good reason. The other would claim, this is another attempt to justify the New 52, which which is proving to be a failing experiment by DC Comics and even that is a stretch.

His comment is so vague as to be direct but could easily be interpreted in two different ways across the fandom. Technically speaking, since Convergence, the Post Crisis, happily married Superman co exists in the same world as the New 52 counterpart, so his history still exists and could be considered canon as well. Canon could also be interpreted by personal reading experience, for all we know Zack could be using his interpretation based off the Earth One novels. I would hardly call that true canon, but the films borrow heavily from them. All Star had some lines lifted for the previous film, but the film hardly resembles that story either, despite it's symbolism, which could be argued was lifted from the previous film series. Birthright was said to have been influenced because of the origin but that doesn't work as canon, as DC abandoned that origin soon after it was published. I couldn't even tell you if the New 52 was the main influence or company mandated influence because even that character functions more like the Post Crisis version with a bit more angst.
I just want to give you props for always handling your superman arguments well. At the moment your opinion seems to be in the minority (in this thread) but based on the recent comments, I'm willing to believe you know the most about the character. I really respect that. So even if you keep getting told to shut up and "get over it," I like reading your knowledge bombs!

And there isn't one canon for old characters like these, Batman movies always borrowed stuff from multiple canons and MoS does exactly the same, only it borrows from stuff that was throughly ignored by other movies and TV series (even Smallville largely ignored the comics in favor of being some sort of "Donner light" until some token stuff in the late series), but Superman must be only that one version in the mind of most fans, because Superman is a bit like the Fantastic Four in that regard, everybody know who he is/they are but few actually have read at least some of his/their comics outside of guest appearances.
I don't think you know what the Golden Age is. That innocent era of comic books had no gray areas, good and evil were well defined, black and white narratives about Gangsters, evil scientists, war profiteers, low level thugs and Axis powers. Each story started out with Clark investigating a crime, that was found to be perpetrated by one of the factions I've listed, Lois usually gets caught sticking her nose into things, while Clark transforms into Superman to save the day, either by killing them, or throwing them in jail, add some bits of Lois trying to uncover the mystery behind Superman and you have the Golden Age summed up in a nutshell. The era ended justly.

That proves my point, that there isn't any true canon, because of what I said and what you added on. Zack is just trying to do some damage control, and poorly might I add, because anybody with a good amount of research i.e. the comic book fandom could poke holes into this theory very easily. He claims he didn't change Superman, well if the New 52 version is the one being considered as the major influence, then he is not entirely incorrect in his statement, but it's not correct to view this version as one that people remember because that variation of the character has only been in existence for 5 years.

I grew up on those comics. I can pretty much remember all of them just by my memory. And in many many many of them there was a freaki`n ton of destruction and chaos in metropolis. I can not believe people actually use this as an argument AGAINST Mos!

Mos was by far THE best and most true superman version to date (if you enjoyed the 80`s/90`s/2000`s comics.

To me it`s mindblowing how haters didn`t get that. Did they even watch the film before they hated it??

You say this superman is like the one from the comics, to a small extent he is, but there are huge gaps in this character, that pale Cavill in comparison to The Post Crisis Superman. Under the pen of John Byrne/Roger Stern/Dan Jurgens/Mark Waid, Superman would not have just rushed over to Lois and kissed her intently, without realizing that he's standing upon a mass grave. That version would have wept for the lost. That's who Superman is. He loves all of humanity, and if the film really wanted to portray him as this savior, this moment of weakness, then this vulnerability should be present. It adds depth and heart to the moment.

We learn prior to Zod's initial incursion that Clark is indirectly responsible for the events of Black Zero. Zod informs him by activating the beacon on the scout ship, that flick of a switch, turn of a key, led the outcasts to Earth. It should be running through Clark's head that he knows by being here, the planet was put at risk. There's some ingredients for some interesting character drama, but it's never brought up. Completely overlooked.

Even during the battle it would have been hard near impossible for Clark to divert the fight away, but if Kal at least had been aware of his surroundings, noticed there were people cowering about, and did what he could to alert them, by directing them to leave, like he did at the start of the battle to ONE random guy on the city streets, to run for cover, that would show the audience that he's not this brute that would slam people into structures, regardless if they're occupied, that he's trying to protect people in the only way he could given the circumstances.

Perhaps in time, Henry Cavil will become the Superman we all desire and wish him to be, but he's not now and in no way would he be considered the "True" adaptation of the character.

Batman: Bad Blood has a Batman v. Superman trailer that plays before the main menu. I hadn't seen this trailer before, it was focused almost exclusively on Batman and Superman in conflict.
