One of the biggest complaints of Man of Steel was the monumental amount of destruction Superman and General Zod were responsible for at the end of the film’s third act. Smashing through skyscrapers like speeding bullets and knocking over buildings with a single punch, the level of violence probably killed thousands of innocent people. With so many critics and fans of the Big Blue Boy Scout up in arms, it seemed inevitable that Man of Steel’s director, Zack Snyder, would have to address the criticism in the sequel.
Well, it seems that Superman will have to deal with the ire of the general public as recent photos posted by Twitter users Tim Reinman and Tim Malin of anti-Superman protesters from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are available to view online.
Though the pictures are taken from a distance, some of the text can be read on the signs. “Thanks for the help” and “Super Death” are a few of the more legible slogans adorned on the signs of BvS’s passionate protesters. While not photographed, a Superman effigy was said to have been burned and paraded around a Detroit parking lot where the protesting was filmed.
