I have taken the liberty of correcting your rant for accuracy:

You are just stuck with your Hans Zimmer' love and your memories of "epic" trailer music. You're complaining about Zimmer forcing his own style into
Superman's world... but what else did Williams do? He has given Superman
the essential Superman sound worthy of the legendary portfolio that includes Star Wars and the Indiana Jones series.

Seriously, which director wants his movie to feel like a wannabe Michael Bay movie amped up on Red Bull and testosterone before it's even out? Answer: Zack Snyder. That's it.

Bringing Hans Zimmer on board was a deliberate choice from Snyder &
Nolan, they clearly wanted to get rid of the time-tested classic fanfare and get
something recycled, faux epic, and cringe-worthy. Stop blaming on Hans Zimmer: he composed the kind of music the director asked for. The director clearly
liked his work (and the Matrix Revolutions), and so does the majority of his mindless fanatics.
