*** Creator/GalGadot herself was on the receiving end of this. Hollywood offered her meager opportunities after her role in ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'' series and she considered giving up on acting. She went on to publicly thank Zack Snyder for casting her as Wonder Woman.

** Batman is supposed to have become DarkerAndEdgier, and grown more cruel after seeing Superman's attack but his response and reaction aren't presented as especially divergent from his previous behaviour. Likewise it's not clear what exactly it is about Superman's fight with Zod that bothers him. If it's collateral damage and irresponsibility, then Batman's own rampage and casual slaughter of criminals in his chase for the Kryptonite, and his general torture and mutilation of evil bad guys, doesn't make sense. Likewise his sudden shift from wanting to kill Superman to teaming up with him after a HeelRealization comes out of a melodramatic plot device rather than the actual ideological issues he has about the risks of having a Superman in the world ("1% of a chance").

** In interviews Snyder claimed that his films are largely about the difficulty or impossibility of being superheroes and having expectations. This was also the concept explored in deconstructive works by Moore and Miller. Except, Snyder brings these problems from the start of the superhero career. Clark Kent is jaded, morose, and a sad-sack ''before'' he becomes Superman, not later in his career after facing a few setbacks, hurdles, regrets, and disappointments which is what ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' tackled[[note]]Rorschach started out with a No-Kill rule, worked with a partner like Nite Owl, and only became a SociopathicHero after the end of his partnership[[/note]]. Likewise, Wonder Woman walks away from mankind after her first disillusionment. Batman is the only old superhero with real baggage and tragedy (i.e. a dead Robin) but there's not a lot of indication that the past version of Batman was especially different from his default state at the start of ''Batman V Superman'', and Commissioner Gordon in ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'' suggests in a throwaway comment about Batman causing another incident million dollar property damage tha he was always a DestructiveSaviour which makes his conflict with Superman even more vague and muddled than it was in terms of the issues it set out to tackle, and never answered.
