I'm surprised it's taken them this long, honestly. Divisive as the franchise/story is, it's the one thing that's been a consistent money-maker for DC over the past decade.

As expected, the Superman fandom are pretty upset by this news.

Man, I'm one of the biggest Superman fans there is, but those people annoy me greatly. If it's not Chris Reeve or JLU Superman, they don't want it.

God forbid WB exploit one of their most profitable recent ventures - the Injustice universe - in one of their most successful avenues - their animated films division. It's one of the last "big" stories they HAVEN'T done yet, so if anything it might be a bit overdue.

I'unno. It's not like I'm eagerly anticipating it - most of DC's animated films in the last ten years have either been "meh" or infuriating, for me, so I can't say I actually look forward to ANY of them - but I'm not whining about its existence, either.

Like yeah, the "Dark Superman" stuff is a bit overdone, but only because so much of it has come out within a relatively short span of time. Compared to the first 50 years where he was literally a one-dimensional goofball character that could only appeal to young children, and then the 80s/90s/00s period where the character was finally given respectability in print but lacked a solid mainstream adaptation to showcase how Superman had "come of age". Like that run of comics is undoubtedly the best presentation the character's ever had in any medium, but most people rely on movies and stuff to learn who these characters are, so they missed that whole thing. And now to the people who make these licensed adaptations, they see the whole "Dark Superman" thing as interesting specifically because it's the polar opposite of the Reeve archetype. But the tonal whiplash is jarring to a lot of people, especially if the Reeve stuff is their preferred take on the character.

But like, they're still just stories. People shouldn't take something clearly labelled as an alternate-universe "What If?" story so personally, just because it goes opposite of the version of the character they liked when they were four. It's not like "Injustice" is mainstream canon or anything, it's an Elseworlds. It's admittedly a pretty cheap and shallow way of turning Superman "bad", but for the purposes of a story that was thrown together to sell a video game, it's fine.

But then, the Superman fandom is full of people who take personal issue with the film "Brightburn" even existing, because it "perverts the Superman mythos" despite the fact that it is very obviously dark satire (and also, a horror movie). So while their passion is somewhat admirable, it's not like they're very reasonable people on a good day.

Even then it wasn’t even like those characters were in the story of the sequel

He was GA in Smallville

Everyone hated evil Superman until Injustice. Now it's cool for Superman to get mad and kill.
