Did You Know?

Continuity: The size of the section of Metropolis Brainiac takes, is much smaller than the one Superman saves at the end.See more »
Brainiac:The impudence. I have been claiming worlds for centuries before you were born. You thought it would help you to disconnect me from my ship. You fail to comprehend. This ship is me. Constructed around me. An extension of me.
Brainiac:Forget Earth. It was unexceptional. It had nothing to offer me.I found it redundant.
Brainiac:Disgusting. Your affection for humans is nauseating.
Brainiac:Yes. The other Kryptonian, I will keep. I'll need at least one. And you may not survive. Now you will see a glimpse of what I am. How many worlds do you think your feeble mind can process before it turns to sludge? I'd say less then one.

Better than I thought, 2 June 2013
Author: CornanTheIowan from United States

I've been unsystematically going through a lot of these Warner movies and this is one of the better ones for me, if not the best. I'm an old (uh, maybe that's not the best word) Superman - Batman fan, so I keep an eye on the the two series and the Justice League from time to time.

Though others have described this movie as a basic super-people brawl, I found enough character development and interpersonal "stuff" to make it more interesting than a simple super-fistfight.

I would have preferred a bit of the "old" (40 years ago) comic book Braniac, as the current Brainiac doesn't seem very "brainy" in this outing, but I like what's going on with Super Girl.

My favorite Superman characteristic is that in the end he USUALLY outwits his opponents rather than simply pummeling then into the ground, and there is a version of that in this movie as well.

I don't know the numbers, but count me in as as adult fan who likes the stories to be as intelligent and "meaningful" as possible. Keep 'em coming, Warner Bros.
