Didn’t Superman get stabbed by the big monster in the last movie
he got better.
But they held two funerals and Martha gave Lois a really massively oversized engagement ring!
I bet you Superman feels real silly about now when people see him walking and flaying about
At least he saw his own funeral, how many people can say that?
But which funeral did he see?
Did he see the cool one with the military doing the 21 gun salute or did he see the one with Lois crying her eyes out
If you stayed for the ending of BvS, they indicated by the fact that the dirt raised from his coffin that he is not really dead. The Justice League poster with Superman shown with the rest of the cast only proves further that he isn’t. This is a messianic story arc, and usually the Messiah usually rises from the dead on the end.
Anyway, I think the reason they “killed” him was so the Justice League would have to unite and face the next terrible threat themselves, rather than rely on Superman to do most of the work. It’s probably the same reason Luke Skywalker was practically left out of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.
Superman will most likely return for the big climax at the latest. Maybe Steppenwolf has his body in stasis, and the team needs to revive him?
With MAN OF STEEL 2 already announced, Superman won’t stay “dead” for long.
