I was disappointed with the film Watchmen
. That said, in the world we live in, it was probably the best film possible from the book. The film was faithful to the book, except where it wasn't, and some of the ways it wasn't faithful, obviously minor to some people, ended up being pretty major to me.
But back on topic, that good news/bad news is really beside the point, as none of that need have any bearing on what Man of Steel
will be like. Using Watchmen
as a gauge of what to expect doesn't go very far, especially since we aren't, AFAIK, discussing the adaptation of a previous single work, as we were in Watchmen
