They should have looked to Into the Spider-verse for reference.
    True about the rumor mill, but I don't think it matters much (GA doesn't care - and don't actively read comic book news/sites). Only people who care about this right now are comic book nerds like us.

    This may be the only thing that I do that matters - Bruce.

    Stay down, if I wanted it, you would be dead already - Clark.

    I would prefer Clark Kent personally, but if they opt for either Val or Cal I wouldn’t mind, but I would be much less interested. Clark is the one with the mythos that has the most richest for the movies to draw upon. I guess I’ll wait and see.

    Not everyone thinks they will. Dispenser and Superlad both think they could racebend Jon for example, and Dispenser thinks Clark is an option too. I guess we just wait and see. I checked out some of the recent posts made by DC social media accounts, they’re going nuts campaigning for Henry. Looks like the toxicity won’t be going anywhere.

    If we can have a Black Lex Luthor we can live with a Black Clark Kent.
    I agree it is no big deal or rather shouldn't be in 2021.

    I'm also concerned about the creative team. I do hope my concerns are misplaced.

    There is no current film series starring Kal-El, hence there is no foundation or house to build off of.

    Singer's was a bland rehash of Donner that didn't make it past the foundation stage. Snyder's set his "house" on fire while laughing manically and screaming "PRAISE THE LORD" so no foundation there.

    We've also had 80 years of Batman content, with more movies and a successful trilogy that only wrapped up in 2012, hijacked a Superman sequel and wasn't embraced that much more than Snyder's Superman, yet Bruce Wayne is getting another trilogy. Why not Dick Grayson or Terry McGinnis? As long as Bruce is getting more movies, I don't have much patience for hearing that Kal-El had enough chances. Hell, even if Wonder Woman 3 is announced, I don't really trust the studio to not be at least considering phasing out Diana after the underwhelming response to WW84, despite her first movie being a hit.

    Already started.

    Ray Fisher's "diss".
    Snyder cut fans have slowly started going off.
    Black folks going off.
    The usual suspects aside from 2 have been quiet or slow in venting.

    However enough folks have gone off that Coates left Twitter.

    Well, good foundation as in well-received movies (which has been a while unless you count the animated films).

    Considering Coates and his feelings on Superman, I think he would rather deal with a blank slate black Superman rather than try and work with the Kent legacy.

    The only thing I could see Coates finding appealing about Superman is Lois Lane.

    To you it might be bland.jon is quirky,energetic,sunny, emotional,expressive, mischievous..etc.
    Clark is a bland dad figure with or without Jon.The guy is Jesus.Conner feels outdated most of the time.Otherwise,they just make more like goldenage superman in things like young justice.

    You didn't notice the winky face, huh? It is a joke (mostly).

    I think a lot of people forget about the whole Multiverse angle, Henry Cavill doesn't necessarily have to be going anywhere, plus Val had a Kal-El on his Earth. Worst case scenario we just got a whole Superman and Lois TV show that I'm sure will last a decent number of years for fans of Clark.

    I think it could go either way. It’s possible he’ll use Clark as he is the one with the vast source material to draw upon who would be easier to make a movie out of than say Val and Cal, who don’t have nearly as much source material to draw from as Clark. and he may want to put his own stamp on the character’s classic secret identity. I personally would prefer he work with Clark but I understand the objections to radically tweaking the look of a character that has remained constant since 1938 but I want a Clark Kent Superman movie which I feel we have yet to get.

    I'll take this over Snyder's Superman launching his villains through buildings full of people.

    Yeah, that's more your signature move than his.
