* FandomHeresy: Admitting to liking this movie is considered this among a lot of Superman fans, to the point of being almost ''{{Godwin|sLaw}}-inducing''.

** Creator/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.

** It's also lumped in with the rivalry between fans of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and fans of [[Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy Nolan's Batman trilogy]] and more directly, the Film/DCExtendedUniverse.

* FanDumb: There are many who argue that the massive property damage and death toll in the movie is completely uncharacteristic of Superman and accuse the creators of just trying to make Superman DarkerAndEdgier for the sake shock or that it appeals more to a modern audience. What these fans fail to realize [[SelectiveObliviousness (or ignore)]] Is the fact that 1) Clark has only been Superman for days so he has zero combat experience with his powers 2) His opponents are trained soldiers that are just as strong as he is and they [[CombatPragmatist will cause collateral damage intentionally to create confusion, misdirect, and to psychologically shake their enemy]] 3) Clark is never going out of his way to break things and when things get broken it's usually because he's defending himself or lashing out. So the movie wasn't being darker or edgier so much as [[DeconstructedTrope showing what would actually happen when a bunch of super-powered aliens decide to throw down on earth.]]

** {{Downplayed|Trope}}. The film has a rating of 55% with critics and a 75% with audiences on Rotten Tomatoes. That said, it really polarized hardcore Superman fans due to the [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks liberties taken with the source material]] ([[MovieSuperheroesWearBlack not just the costume, either]]). Despite this, the movie had very positive audience reactions and word of mouth, and collected the highest-grossing June opening weekend at the time (before being surpassed by ''Film/JurassicWorld'' two years later).

* TaintedByThePreview: People were already divided over the involvement of Creator/ZackSnyder ([[NeverLiveItDown because of]] ''Film/SuckerPunch'') and David S. Goyer and Creator/ChristopherNolan (because some thought their approach for [[Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy Batman]] wouldn't fit Superman). Then the first ever picture of Henry Cavill in the Superman costume drew mixed reactions for its [[DarkerAndEdgier dark and gloomy tone]] and muted blue filter. Then the first ever teaser trailer drew mixed and confused reactions for its dark and gloomy tone, muted blue filter, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and Clark Kent on a fishing boat]]. The first full trailer again drew mixed reactions for the same reasons though there was finally a taste of the promised action, and many dismissed Hans Zimmer's score just from the snippet used. Add in the people who believe [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight the Donner/Reeve/Brando/Williams films will never ever be bettered and are offended by this film's existence]], and you have one heck of a BrokenBase. Safe to say the base was broken from ''the start''.

** Due to the quality of the fight scenes, fans feel that the film was a better ''Franchise/{{Dragonball}}'' movie than the official [[Film/DragonballEvolution Dragonball movie]]. The fight scenes in Man of Steels were brawls translated into live actions from the Superman comics... which in turn were more similar to Dragon Ball style combat in the anime and manga than the "floatier" martial arts style used in Dragonball Evolution.

** Only a month-and-a-half after ''Man of Steel'' premiered, the animated film ''JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox'' was released. In that story about history getting altered, what happened to Kal-El was [[FateWorseThanDeath even more horrible than what Lara feared]].
