It's era not specific depiction. There are a LOT of actors that have played him.
And yet, they made sure there was room for Snyderman actor Henry Cavill's era, rather than Dean Cain's, Tom Welling's, or Brandon Routh's. Nepotism has its privileges...
But, uh, Smallville was actually depicted, which surprised me and made me smile.
A tower is not a Superman, and certainly bears no resemblance to Mr. Welling.
"Somebody SAAAAAAAAAAVE Tom!! COME ONNNNN!!"
Earth-2 aged-Superman was essentially the Ross Superman, also depicted.
Not at all. Earth-2 aged-Superman never abandoned society, just because anti-heroism became popular. Prior to the DiDio era's usual Character Derailment
, he had more dignity than to do such a thing.
Bryne probably should have been depicted, at the expense of the Superman video game. But I'm wondering if the Superman they showed fighting Doomsday was essentially their depiction of Bryne-era Superman; it sure looked like the solid 80s-stylization rather than the more exaggerated 90s proportions and exaggerated linework.
Animation always favors less linework and more solidity (which is why Timm's animated Superman design worked so well). I think if they were reaching for Byrne's Superman, they'd have gotten it.
I'm not wowed by it either, but it'd be kind of weird to do a celebration of the full history of Superman and not include contemporary Superman.
I don't see Snyderman as "contemporary", more like an aberration.
