@junior-roberts In building the Justice League, as it comes down the stretch I don't believe it'll be a literal Pt. I and Pt. II. I think they will be self-contained entities but just a way in the announcement to let us, the audience, know that there is more to come in light of the heroes teaming up. Given the time between the first JL movie and the next it isn't likely that one rides right into the other as more stand alone films are situated between. WE don't really know what's happening or what the game plan is. All we know is that there will be a Justice League movie with the potential villain being Brainiac. We won't see the overall direction until we've seen BvS: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad and how they feed into the schematic of where this eventual team up takes place. It's easy to be critical when the rumor mill keeps turning out these headlines chock full of limited and speculative information. There hasn't been anything by way of big reveal thus far. We know there is a Batman...a Superman...and a Wonder Woman sharing screen time set against another version of Lex Luthor. We know that it's Zack Snyder...so it'll be different. We know Chris Terrio wrote the script...meaning there may be promise to it leading in another direction than the previous Man of Steel following the massive criticism it has received.

As for Brainiac, I for one don't draw the same comparison between him and the character Ultron. The two couldn't be any more different as adversaries of the respective teams. Even the tone couldn't be more different knowing each studios brand and approach. This is really just a wait and see scenario.

Jason David Frank strikes me as a big egotist. The Green and White Rangers were the only reason to watch the Power Ranger back in the day. But the more I hear from him the more he comes off as having more clout than he actually does. Say Jason David Frank's name and the average person doesn't even know who he is. I ain't mad at him--just seems he's got a lot of mouth.

@writer220 A lot of people comment that there was too much action in Man of Steel in contrast to Superman Returns that lacked it greatly. The many complaints I see on the film tend to become more cynical than anything. I've seen that movie more times than I actually care to admit or really wanted to following all the commentary to try to find justification in the reasoning for a lot of these assessments. I find very few. That aside, most arguments become irrelevant.

Was the movie flawed...Yes, it had its flaws. Was it deeply and profoundly flawed, I don't truly believe so. The thing is, Man of Steel has ample story. It's got a wealth of rich storytelling. The style of storytelling may not be for everyone--but it is indeed there. It went through painstaking measures to establish the history of Krypton. Albeit it required more comprehension and interpretation to companion the visual aesthetic established in the trial of baby Kal-El whose life is endangered at the moment of birth and his parents trying to spirit him away from a world that had fallen to ruin with politics older than the relics that served the backward thinking Kryptonian Council.

From that the movie was quite story driven while trying to establish Clark/Kal-El through physical feats while rendering backstory to establish his being an outcast...an outsider...looking at the world keeping his distance while somewhat hiding in plain sight. All of it had been established on his journey of self-discovery through his adulthood and reflection of a painful childhood learning that his origins began elsewhere from Earth. He'd met Zod and his cohorts midway through the second act and was instantly thrust into a conflict both internally and physically having to make a choice between the people he'd just met associated to his race and the world that adopted him. The third act followed up on all that had been established from the prologue to the end of the second act. However, these are the events of the same day from the moment he'd outed himself to the world and turned himself over to Zod. A lot had happened from finding deep connection to seeing that the only peace that could be found would be from the wake of chaos. He had no time to adjust to the thought or idea of what his people were given that the only image he had of them was Zod and his small yet effective army of condemned Kryptonians.

The rest of it falls to a matter of taste and how it is received. Forgive my rant.
