Kevin Smith weighs in on his thoughts about DC/Warner Bros. no longer making Superman films to concentrate on other superhero flicks which sparked the rumor that Henry Cavill maybe hanging up the cape for good.
Kevin says what DC Films are doing is a huge mistake. Why? It’s because Superman is the king of all superheroes. Superman was the first superhero ever created… he paved the way for many other superheroes to be created. He also says we’re in an era of comic book movies and he feels Superman shouldn’t be ignored.
I agree with everything he said. Without Superman, we wouldn’t have gotten other DC Superheroes such as Supergirl, Batman, The Flash, Wonderwoman, The Green Lantern, Aquaman, Thor, etc. Marvel comics happened ’cause of Superman too, admit it right? The Superman character popularized comics… that’s a fact.
The Superman character is so famous and legendary, the character shouldn’t be ignored at all. The character’s legacy needs to be kept alive forever so for DC Films/Warner Bros. to neglect Superman for other superhero films is a freakin’ joke.
Superman was a character that was loved by people of all ages. I loved the character ever since I was a child and still love the character now. I was a Superman fanatic all my life. When I was a child, I was obsessed with the Christopher Reeve Superman flicks and still love those movies. When I was a child, I used to watch the George Reeves Superman TV show and used to watch all the Superman cartoons. Of course, I used to read Superman comics when I was a kid too and I just gotten back into reading Superman comics. I just love the character.
Whether or not Henry Cavill is still on for Superman, DC Films still needs to make Superman films either way. Just have a different Superman actor for all I care, just keep making Superman movies. Sure the Henry Cavill Superman films got mixed reviews but they were all still huge money makers. If Henry is out as Superman then just do another reboot… anything. Just don’t ignore Superman, period.
Superman is an important character for all of us and always will be.
