Superman Fanboys Kryptonite To Man Of Steel

There was more casting news for The Dark Knight Rises this week. These announcements were met with much speculation, argument, and, most of all, excitement. This is almost in direct contrast to the reception that the casting news for the new Superman film, Man of Steel, has endured.

There is currently much disparity between the treatment the two properties are receiving, with almost overwhelming positivity towards the next Batman film by the fans, and little else but negativity aimed at Zack Snyder’s project.
