If the Superman like character is the bad guy, who is the protagonist? A fake Lex Luther? This is like a Zach Snyder dream picture, with a conflict just as poorly planned as Bats versus Supes. If Superman was a sociopath, who could stop him? Is Green Lantern gonna come in the third act to help out? LOL.

Sure there is a long shot chance that a filmmaker can make a seemingly unworkable premise work, but they usually don’t and poorly executed premises aren’t what I pay to see. Maybe that’s what you dig. In that case, you go see it. I won’t. Nothing weird there, other than you caring what film I want to see or not.

Not a bomb due to the low production budget. Forgot Blumhouse makes movies way cheaper than most studios. Still 28 mill ain’t anything to write home about and means basically no one saw this thing in a theater.

Sure I see the anti-Superman schtick.
But really this doesn't seem that different from any other horror movie.
Like another poster said, maybe it could work if the protagonist turns out to be some Lex Luthor-ish character. I doubt it, though.
I'd be pleasantly surprised if the movie went all the way as far as subverting the superhero film--like a superior version of Unbreakable/Split/Glass. But I'm guessing that beyond the premise it's just another forgettable horror movie.
