Man of Steel had been teased forever...like and year or something...before it came out. There was a huge chance for over-hype, and the movie to be as big a let-down as some people thought Iron Man 3 was. Fortunately for the franchise, it's an amazing movie!
My only question was, "How could they make a sequel to top that?"
A lot of people questioned all the death and destruction in the movie, saying it was very un-Superman-like.
