Why so serious? - What superhero movies get wrongWhy so serious?

Ever since the landmark publishing of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns (1986) and Alan Moore's Watchmen (1987), with their amoral super-heroics, gruesome violence, and dark subject matter, comics writers have often confused darkness for depth. Writers assume that probing the depths of human depravity made comics more realistic, as if that was the medium's goal in the first place. And nowhere is this concept of darkness presented with such disappointing results as in Man of Steel. Everything about the movie is unavoidably and unnecessarily dark: from the death of Jonathan Kent, to the straight-up murder of Zod committed by the film's "hero," to the very demeanor Superman presents on-screen. The dude is all dark, which is strange for a character who is literally strengthened by his exposure to sunlight. The film seemed to wallow in misery, taking a character who is supposed to inspire and uplift and making him a monster and making the story a long, miserable slog towards nihilism.
