It seems like everyone has an opinion on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and that extends to former Men of Steel as well.
Dean Cain, who played Clark Kent on the 1990s TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, has now offered his take on the Superman’s latest cinematic outing, as well as his son’s. Cain says he enjoyed it on the whole, but that it may have been a bit too long.
My son hated it because Superman died. It made me very happy that he took it so personally and that he has such a strong connection to the character (laughs). The movie obviously was so well made; the effects were incredible. It was too long, though, and I admit, I dozed off a tiny bit, but maybe that's because I was tired after a lot of traveling. Ben was great as Batman and Henry is a very good Superman. This incarnation is so dark compared to the lightness of the Superman I've grown to know and love, as seen in the two versions that I grew up with — Christopher Reeve and myself. That's the only difference to me. [This movie] inhabits a dark world and Superman is such an alien in that world. Wonder Woman is really easy on the eyes, and I love that they introduced the other guys, the Justice League, because those stories are very cool. I loved how they did that. But I don't see how you have a Justice League without Superman.
Cain is a still a part of the Superman mythos, playing the adoptive father of Kara Danvers on Supergirl.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
