The latest "Super Cafe" video also includes a very insightful criticism of Man of Steel that encapsulates my concern with it: It was not inspiring.

Loading Video...

Again, not that I didn't like it, but this is why it didn't feel like a Superman film to me and I'm more looking forward to the next film.

Also, I just find the Super Cafe stuff entertaining.

Superman is pretty hard to make inspirational, that satisfy the general audience. Superman is already powerful, have good looks and he stiil have his mom. The movie choosed to focus on him being not from this World, feeling alienated by nearly everyone, an outsider, an immigrant. If he were to inspire the mass by doing a good deed, they would probably try make him end famine, or a find a cure for cancer, or stop global Warming, than saving a guy from a Cliff. Stopping an alien invasion was probably closest to a global threat that might fit better with Supermans lore. Which also gives opportunity to show of his superpowers more than solving HIV epidemic. Even though i kinda actually want to see that...

Why the hell should people think this movie was going to be inspiring? Seriously? Batman Begins wasn't inspiring either.

Yeah it was.

@fodigg: Or you can view it as he has his priority straight, putting others before himself.

Man of Steel didnt have his no killing policy yet, all he has was to protect his adopted home, to save humanity. His main Ideal, the ideal that have never died, the ideal that made him a hero, to protect the innocent. That ideal didnt waver.

Its really a matter of perspective.

NO IT'S NOT!

I HATE MOS! IT WASN'T A SUPERMAN MOVIE! HE KILLED SOMEONE! IT WAS UNINSPIRING! IT WAS DARK! IT WAS BATMAN IN A SUPERMAN COSTUME!

Lol

I know not to expect All Star or Pre Flashpoint Superman straight away. But I wanted so much more from this version of Superman.
