Man of Steel was awful. How many films can that movie rip off? Matrix, Independence Day, District 9, Alien, Avatar.
You know that the Superman origin story predates all of those right? The Matrix
fight over the city between Smith and Neo, which is what I'm assuming you were referencing, was based on Superman, not the other way around. You think Neo flying around with a trenchcoat/cape was the first time that ever happened and that the Wachowskis weren't doing an homage to anyone there?
Superman was an alien refugee story long before District 9
, dealt with alien invasions way before Independence Day
, and had an alien living among the natives and taking their side well before Avatar
Agreed; I do not know how anyone could think a sane mind would rip off the likes of The Matrix, Independence Day, District 9
, or Avatar
