I don't know why people are hating Fitz Simmons (Fitz and Simmons?) I loved them, they were adorable and funny.
I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually a decent show. Leaned a little heavy on the Avengers references, managing to reference every Marvel movie since Iron Man, haha! So I don't know how accessible it'll be to casual viewers, which makes me fear just how long it'll stay on the air.
But I did enjoy it, definitely a Joss Whedon show. Headstrong young girl, quirky characters, moments of cheesy dialogue and some inappropriate moments of trying to be funny. Not that it's a bad thing, I think as an overall package, it came together quite nicely.
The idea that Superman never kills is...a bit naive, really. The dude had to make a choice. It was either stop Zod in that moment or let those innocent people die. Clark was not a very experienced hero at this point, he was not "Superman", he probably didn't even know the full limits of his strength and...what if he managed to stop Zod from killing that family, what then? Throw him in prison? What exactly would be able to hold him? No one on that planet, other than his parents, even knew someone like Clark existed, making it reasonable to assume there have been no defenses or offenses created to actually stop a Kryptonian, so Zod was going to run rampant until one of them was dead.
The one part of the movie that did bug me was how careless and reckless Superman was when fighting Zod. Literally leveling the city in the process. But, I suppose, his inexperience plays a factor there too. He's never had to face someone as strong as him (or even 3 people as strong as him) before.
Frankly, I'm glad the movie ended the way it did. Made him appear so much more human and relateable, rather than being stuck in an outdated, idealistic trope that really doesn't make sense given the situation.
Meh, I'm alright with this. Amell already doesn't look like Ollie, so I won't have trouble adjusting to anyone else not looking like their comic book counter parts. Labeling him a Glee actor probably gives a sour taste, due to the general sentiment towards Glee from most comic book fans, which is a shame cause he isn't a regular on that show and has only appeared in a few episodes...as a rich, preppy, d-bag.
He ain't that bad of an actor from what I could tell, but Glee is generally over the top and melodramatic...so it's perhaps a bit hard to gauge how good of a dramatic actor he could be when his role on Glee was intentionally meant to be the over the top Bond-villain type...but in high school.
