Snyder's right, if you read the Superman comics, Man of Steel wasn't at all shocking. If you want to see rampant destruction of Metropolis while Superman battles a Kryptonian foe, read The Death of Superman comics.

What people are mistaking for canonical Superman were the campy, low budget, clearly 80's-ish Christopher Reeves movies made not to upset 2-year olds. Those movies actually sucked, frankly, and I doubt many people complaining are honestly remembering them.

Super battles = Super destruction. If no one can die, there is no tension.
The 'Batman v Superman' director adds that the new Justice League characters will similarly follow comic book canon.

I want to be happy about this. I want to be able to use a Google system to manage my podcasts again.

But since Google deprecated Google Listen (the podcast app companion to Google Reader) a few years ago, leaving us all in the lurch, I'm a little hesitant about trusting them with that again.

Google's habit of shutting down services we rely on has shaken my confidence. Google Play Podcasts is going to have to offer a pretty awesome product to tempt me back from Podcast Addict.
 
It was announced back in October that Google Play Music would be adding podcasts to its lineup, and now it looks like that launch may be imminent. It now appears that podcasts will launch on Play Music at some point in February. This timeframe comes from sports podcaster Bill Simmons, whose podcast will be available on Google Play at launch. FYI - the BS Podcast will be available on Google Play when GP launches its podcast platform later this month. https://t.co/mwWvuYyCTO— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) February 2, 2016 While its not official, Simmons could be in a position to know. Just remember that Google has not announced a date itself for the launch of podcasts of Google Play Music, and such a launch may slip past February. When then arrive, you'll be able to search for and play your favorite podcasts right in the Google Play Music app. Not only that, but Play Music will also make suggestions for new podcasts for you based on your interest or mood, just as it does now with ...
According to podcaster Bill Simmons, Google may bring podcasts to Google Play Music later in February.
