My biggest concern however is that Ta-Nehisi Coates is very outspoken politically, and with Hollywood's current trend to fuse as much politics into their movies as possible, this movie will feature politics & political correctness first, with story/plot/character development, etc, as an afterthought.
    Superman fights for Truth, Justice and the Canadian Way. That’s pretty political.

    You could definitely argue that the slogan is political, but I don't think you can argue that the slogan was in any way pivotal to the story of any of the Superman movies in the last few decades. (not sure about the old black & white Superman shows/movies).

    It may not have been pivotal to the story...but it was very pivotal to the character in the Reeves/Donner films. Not so much in the Snyder-Verse.

    If they wait 7 years between movies.. then they might as well do a reboot every time.

    Superman is a also journalist Clark Kent. You know who also is a journalist? Ta-Nehisi Coates. I imagine that Coated would be better at his job if he had super hearing.

    Also journalism is also an inherently political job.

    You should probably stop humoring the poster who apparently thinks that "being black" is a political persuasion. It's not very useful.

    Ok

    Name them.

    And then realize that every single one of them has been put on the shelf right next to the "kid-friendly" books.

    We really are living in the age of reboots.

    Hollywood & The Movie Industry has really run out of ideas.
    Hollywood: "Let's just reboot something."

    80% of Hollywood is new IPs. It's just the majority of people prefer to go to the reboots, sequels etc.

    Apparently they got a dude called Ta-Nehisi Coates to write the script, who is like a RAGING anti-white racist who wrote a number of crazy books claiming everything is racist, including ragging on the first responders on 9/11 and calling them "menaces of nature".

    Top notch personnel. I think the movie will be great. /s

    If they do another Superman movie, even if it's a different universe I hope they did what Marvel did on Spider-Man and skip over all the origin stuff and goes straight to the story. Then again the only Superman movie I liked was the original ones that Christopher Reeve's did. Even found BvS and JL to be lack luster.
    Errr, the first Spider-Man in the MCU was very origin-story focused, if I remember correctly. His first appearances, I guess, in Civil War, wasn't, he was already Spider-Man, but then they went into it with Homecoming.

    In a way it was and in a way it wasn't. Civil War, his first appearance, he was already Spider-Man and was presumably doing activities just in his homemade outfit which probably helped attract less attention. His suit got upgrade in Civil War which persisted in Homecoming where he branched out more. Homecoming had him face his first major villain rather than street level gangs and such. At the same time it skipped over a lot of the origin story too, such as Uncle Ben and such.

    For me, it skipped a lot of the origin story while keeping some of it. The well known basics were definitely skipped and not taking up one fourth to one third of the movie alone. So as for the case of Superman I don't really think they need to spend a good chunk of the movie introducing he's from Krypton, landed on Earth, becoming accustomed to his powers, etc etc. They should be able to jump into the fray where he's starting to battle enemies and such and be able to develop those storylines without adding extra runtime onto the movie just to accommodate various things unless it is needed.

    Civil War was Spidey's first appearance in the MCU.

    Homecoming doesn't do origin either.

    Who says the movies should follow the comics?

    If that were the logic, Nolan should have used the Adam West palette for his hero, just to stay faithful to a previous on screen adaptation.

    Nah, I’ve read some of his non-fiction work. It’s neither anti-white or racist. He’s pretty good. You should read him.

    He currently writes the Captain America comic. If you can write Cap, odds are you can probably write a decent Superman story.

    If Christopher Nolan was attempting to make an adaptation of the Adam West Batman...that would have been the case.

    And i don't think you have to follow the storylines in the comics exactly to the movie...however...if you're going to make a movie about the Batman...it should stay true to the character of Batman.

    If you want a movie where The hero slaughters his way through his enemies...there are plenty of others that go that route.

    WB has made no decisions on the Snyder verse and won't until they see how the new version of Justice League performs.

    What may happen is a different character who takes on the mantle of superman in a different reality of the DC multiverse and this character has been in the comics for years.
    Didn't they remove Superman, and therefore Cavil from any future DCEU?

    Which was actually very good. How many times do we have to see Uncle Ben/Bruce parents getting shot? Spidey introduction in Civil War was refreshing.
