** Jor-El's view of humans as flawed yet inherently good is validated by the end of ''Film/SuicideSquad''

** The amount of action. Before the film was released, Goyer said it had more action than any of the ''[[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Dark Knight]]'' films. He wasn't lying. On that note, the level of destruction involved. Some think Superman didn't try enough to stem the level of carnage being done to Smallville and Metropolis, and he sometimes even voluntarily adds to it. He's responsible for bringing a fight from an isolated farmhouse into Smallville central. Though when he does send Zod into orbit, Zod takes them right back to Metropolis. The amount of damage Superman creates also really isn't much different from city fights with powerful villains like Darkseid in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' and other recent media, and the US military dealt most of the damage to Smallville through MoreDakka. Others also argue that there wasn't much Clark could have done to avoid endangering anyone; afterall, Zod and his follows not only have his powers, but they're also highly trained warriors.

** JohnCleese's 2004 comic ''Superman: True Brit'', which shows a [[{{Elseworld}} world]] where Superman was raised in England, is kind of funny now that Superman's actor is British.

** Many feel the film didn't take advantage of being a reboot to fix or re-establish stuff properly because it was too busy emulating the Nolan Bat-films and the previous Superman movies.
** While the portrayal of Clark is far from Reeve's bumbling pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}} Clark, he's not really the modern ComicBook/PostCrisis Clark (as seen in stuff like ''Series/LoisAndClark'' and the {{Franchise/DCAU}}) either. Instead the film goes on its own tangent for his character and backstory, arguably even further than ''{{Series/Smallville}}''.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: A Creator/ZackSnyder staple, but special mention goes to Zod's armor. You'd ''never'' guess it's CGI.

** Some have objected to Henry Cavill just because he's not American, though this has largely died down after his performance and [[FakeAmerican convincing accent]] were favorably recieved.

** Martha had to raise a child with unique needs and issues, watched her husband die minutes after said son, in a fit of anger, called them both out on 'not being his real parents', before then said son disappeared for years. When he returns and happily tells her about how he found his birth-culture, she looks like her heart broke but wants to keep a brave face since he's so happy.

* HarsherInHindsight: Jonathan Kent had already gotten a lot of hate for telling Clark he was wrong to save his classmates from the bus crash, but then the ''Series/{{Supergirl}}'' series made him look even worse, as Kara also gets a family member chewing her out for revealing herself to the world...and not only does Alex have a much more concrete and understandable reason for it, but she completely turns around just by the end of the first episode.

*** Just like Creator/MarlonBrando's Jor-El, this Jor-El basically orders Clark to be Superman. While Brando's Jor-El forcibly subjected his Clark to over a decade's worth of MindMeld, here they just talk for an indeterminate but surely shorter time. It still makes Jor-El look like a ManipulativeBastard with a god complex while Clark again comes across as just doing what he's told by rote. A far cry from the comics where Clark became Superman on his own, without any input from his space dad.
