At least Clark got a few in there. I hope that later at some point they release the entire 4 hour film.

It's not fair to say anything yet, until we atleast get a count of how many Batman lines there were. If he has more than twice as many, then we'll riot.

Diana got like 16. Wake up and smell the roses, it's f**ked up how little lines their titular character got.

My favorite DC Character getting brushed under the rug, what a shame.

The character is so devoid of personality I can't say I wanted more of him.

is it really fair to judge the movie's focus and exposure of a particular character based on one single statistic?

a fairer method is to get other statistics as well, such as how many continuous scenes does the character get, how long did the character appear on-screen, etc etc

This ^ However, it's not the character, it's the way he is written and directed.

Clark spends a lot of time just standing by and listening in these movies.

There are still plans to release the R-rated version and if they release the original cut we might get to see more of man of steel but doesn't change the fact that DC downplayed superman , maybe because batman has more fans and they wanted to satisfy the audience. Also batman probably has more screen time than SM even though it was technically a Superman movie.

Judging by the state of paranoia in the movie and how quick to violence everyone was I think all the characters had had too many lines.

F**king Bruce had more dialogue with Martha than Clark did.

That's much fairer. Especially since a scene's impact is much more important than it's running time.
