The DC Comics character Superman, portrayed by Henry Cavill, has gained a lot of love from fans. However, there are some fans who, just like the British actor, are defenders of the source material. Those who have read the original comics would have found many differences in the film. Therefore, a fan pointed out a major difference that Zack Snyder’s Justice League made. While some fans defended it, others pointed out the blunder from the different adaptations.

The 2017 superhero film didn’t do well at the Box office. However, loyal DC fans are in love with the characters and the comic books. Therefore, the social fan was flooded when a fan noticed the film’s post-credit scene and saw a change in the race between Superman and Flash. According to the comic book, Superman was supposed to run, not fly, when he and Flash met in the post-credit scene.
