This "Superman" doesn't deserve the John Williams music.
------------------------------------------
See, I would have agreed with that until Justice League.  Which was not a good movie and has tons of problems I can enumerate.  But the one thing I really liked about it was that Henry Cavill finally got to play Superman.  The way he carried himself, spoke, and even the way they depicted his powers was pretty much spot on, to my mind.  Cavill has always looked the part, but here he actually got to play it.  If only he had had a better movie to play it in.

Agreed about Cavill. I've been a fan of his since The Tudors. The problems with the Snyder Superman aren't due to Cavill, it's the material he's given. That's why I was hopeful last year when Matthew Vaughn was reported to be in the running to make a Man of Steel sequel, where he said he wanted to make Superman a "feel good" and, gasp, "heroic" character again. But there hasn't been much news on that, since.

This clip, I think, shows what I liked about Cavill's Superman.

CGI mustache removal flaws aside, I also think Henry Cavill's portrayal in "Justice League" was pretty darn good, and one of the best things about the film. I never blamed him or his acting for "Man of Steel" (which I loath), or "Batman v Superman" (which is seriously flawed). "Justice League" proves Cavill can be a likeable Superman if given the chance. That clip Steve shared above is proof of that.

I think Cavill is great as Superman. Bad writing made a bad Superman in Man of Steel and Batman vs. Superman but there were moments in both films that I thought that he was a good fit. Justice League is a step forward in doing a proper Superman. I compare it to the comics, New 52 Superman didn't feel like Superman to me but Rebirth Superman has been pretty darn good in my opinion.

Finally got around to watching this and enjoyed it to a point but couldn't help feel that it simply wouldn't exist without the Marvel films. Instead of doing it's own thing it felt incredibly derivative: Steppenwolf feels like a reject from the second Thor movie and the plot about the boxes felt like the infinity stones quest crammed into one film.

Wonder Woman is great though and Flash fun - I barely know the character from the comics so have nothing to compare him with - but felt there was a real lack of chemistry from the group as a whole. Aquaman and his constant cussing was plain awful and Cyborg was as bland as they come.

I was surprised I didn't hate it as much as I thought I would. Aquaman was a joke, but I agree with what others have said, Cavill got to play Superman.
I cannot stand that there are no secret identities anymore.

The desperation in trying to make Aquaman "cool" only serves to make the character less cool.

I said it a couple pages back, but I hate this movie.  It's awful on just about every level: as a superhero film and just a film period.  There is virtually nothing redeeming about it.  Maybe WW but they sexualize her here where they didn't in her own film, so even that's ruined.  There's literally nothing to get excited about the DCU that even compares to the excitement for INFINITY WAR.  Nothing  Zip.  Zero.
