Matt Peters’ Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons is to be released soon, before the end of the month. This animated venture sees Jonathan Kent and Damien Wayne teaming up to save their superhero fathers and ultimately save the day. And while DCAU has been the better part of DC Films and Television division, not everything they come up with is taken to be a good thing.

Recently, the trailer for Battle of the Super Sons was released, and something Superman said did not sit right with the fans. Superman has always been a larger-than-life entity, someone every person on the planet looks up to. And by planet, we do not only mean the United States of America. This discourse, of every incident in superhero movies only happening in some parts of America, has been making the rounds for quite a few years now. And though recent movies are trying to stand beyond this American boundary, not everyone has taken the hint.

Superman in the comics has always more or less tried to not take part in political matters. He has his own way of doing things and solving problems. But recently, it seems like Superman has become yet another stooge of the American government – what with rumors from Black Adam saying Superman is now in cahoots with none other than Amanda Waller. Now after the Battle of the Super Sons trailer, things are not getting any better.

Recently, a tweet from a fan (read Zack Snyder enthusiast) has gained some traction. They focused on one particular dialogue from the upcoming animated movie, which shows Superman to be yet another protector of the American way.

The tweet serves as a comparison between Superman from Battle of the Super Sons with Henry Cavill’s version of the character. When Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel came out in 2012, fans were immediately taken with Cavill’s iteration of the Last Son of Krypton. He gave us a somewhat comic-accurate version of the man in blue, who did not adhere to the laws but helped the people in his own way. This showed the fans that while Superman was ready to work with the army and the government, he was not to be taken as just another soldier. He would help but in his own way.

Is Henry Cavill’s Version a Better Superman?

The character of Superman has gone through multiple iterations over the years. But only a handful have really made the fans rally behind them, Henry Cavill being one of the few. Zack Snyder’s vision, combined with Cavill’s acting chops really made the movie something more than fans had hoped for.

Fans of Snyderverse have come forward since then to show their displeasure about this “American way” of Superman. Check out some of the tweets here:

 

Some others though don’t really mind if it’s the American way or the Snyder way. They are just happy as long as they get Superman on their screens.

Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons is to be released on the 18th of October 2022.
