Clark still has it in his character to save Luthor from his own mad scientist machinations and attempt to officiate an arrest for his aforementioned crimes.

    It's fine for Superman to be angry, it's quite another to nearly murder someone when you have the powers of a god and your name is Superman, and Superman who already controversial after Man of Steel. Context, Lex is a fragile human with mental problems, and Superman is supposed to be the adult in the room we should hold him up to higher standards than Lex Luthor. Personally, I don't like my Superman to be like enforcers from the mob. If Superman acted more like when Doomsday was around this wouldn't be a negative, that's how he's supposed to act. That doesn't erase the fact he nearly killed Lex because Clark is too stupid to learn how to control his emotions. As Superman this is an incredible responsibility whenever he uses his powers, he uses them wrong he'll kill people. In Smallville Clark this as a teenager before he went off to Metropolis, and that was a jock Superman. This is what I'd expect from a teenager with super powers with bad impulse control, not a full grown man who's been Superman for a length of time.


    It's enough to make a person pick up drinking, am I right?

    People see what they want to see, alright.

    Talking them over with Bored has helped soften me on Snyder's vision. I'm going to rewatch MoS this week and probably have a different opinion, but I gotta say the Chris Reeve drinking gif doesn't get used nearly enough. Always gets a laugh.

    Good, because we're discussing Superman not Goku. CW Superman is definitely an adult, that's why it's nice to see the character return to form in live action again.

    I thought this was a thread about the CW show.

    Also, "Superman has to be the adult in the room" is a weird when we are talking about a villain who is also an adult and a rather vicious one at that. Calling Lex just a guy with mental problems while demonising Clark for what would have been a pretty common reaction to your last surviving parent being kidnapped and threatened with death is some Ron the Death Eater stuff.

    Do we know who is doing the score for the show? I liked the little snippets of music weve heard so far, Im hoping for a new theme for Superman himself (it will probably be a joint theme with Lois).

    I checked but sadly found nothing. I guess we'll know after the show's debut.

    Wow!you really think that.Don't ya?Look a guy who thinks superman being an adult is a big deal.You know who else thinks that.Zack snyder.There you go.Here is a bright idea,Superman is kid's character just like goku.Yeah!Yeah! goku would kick this superman to mars and back with one finger.The "adult" hasn't won a single fight,Some "return to form".first the guy needs to atleast get a win when fighting equals and not some fodder villains or atleast look like he's ready,clanging and banging if fight does occur.We will see who this is aimed at,CW goes for teen drama most of the time.
    (this post is just me talking nonsense.For those people that like this superman.I mean no offence.)

    I’m kinda hoping for a theme that has a “faster” intro (I know nothing about how music is made lol). Both Williams and Zimmer’s themes typically start kinda slow and build to a crescendo (although Williams with the horns does feel a bit faster paced). I know I’m doing a terrible job of describing what I want but a theme that is a quicker in building to its “climax” is what I’m hoping for.

    I kind of assumed whoever did Supergirl's score would move on to this show.

    I don't think anyone has ever had a problem with the score.

    Yeah - didn't one guy originally do Arrow, Flash, Legends and Supergirl? They all got other composers later, but the original one is still credited due to the theme tune and leitmotifs still being used.
