Superman isn’t about being happy and cheery all the time…he is about showing hope and light even in the darkest of times. A lot of the world may hate and dislike superman in the DCEU universe during man of steel and most of Batman v. Superman and a lot of people only see him as broody and mopey…Yet he still showed plenty of happiness and hopefullness in Man Of Steel, which a lot of people seem to ignore. He does act more mopey and more sad in Batman v. Superman…but for good reason, it shows how human Clark really is from how he was raised, he saved an entire planet and our world still questions him and tears him apart.

The DCEU is an accurate and true reflection of our real world.
“That is why these movies are brilliant (well, one of many reasons). They are not dark for darkness’ sake; they’re dour to convey a specific and particular tone. They are not making light of real world issues, and therein lies the problem with many a critic and viewer alike. These films are not escapist; they are instead reflective”
