I've been mildly curious to see what angle they can take with this character, but this doesn't seem like a direction that's going to work for them. Too whiney and emo, tha may work okay on a CW show, but summer popcorn movie audiences are looking for FUN!
Yeah it is somewhat surprising they're going for another dark and moody Superman, after the poor reception SR got.

But the clear difference this time is that they're also making it really huge and EPIC, with tons of intense action to balance out the somberness.

That's what SR was lacking, and why I believe people ultimately didn't respond to it.
