Thing is that it's Superman it SHOULD be bright and colorful like Avengers (or, hell, any of the Marvel-U movies) was. Not the kind of movie where the only splash of color you see is the blue on the Sears building or the blues and yellows in the IHOP. The color tone and vibrancy was just too low in MoS, the movie might of well have been in black-n-white.
I'll agree that the actual color scheme could have been more vibrant. I was responding more to the overall tone of Man of Steel
which was less comic booky than The Avengers
. I liked the tone of Man of Steel
and don't subscribe to this often rigid idea that superhero movies should emphasize a certain kind of fun and levity.
