Rodrigo,
You have reasons that you want to see the movie. Others do not. There is no right or wrong answer here.

Sure, that's kinda my point. 

If you "don't want to" do something like, say, watch a movie, find the character sympathetic or the story relatable then... don't.

I just find that kind of reasoning (as if this particular film is being somehow forced upon people, that they're going to manipulate you into liking the character or something) bizarre. 

Sorry if anyone was offended (?).

I'll put my own reaction on the latest iteration of the same character on the big screen for comparison.

I thought it was beyond awful. I thought the movie was terrible and the character's inclusion nonsensical. The characterization was way off, and the actor was terribly miscast and did a lousy job. It also greatly displeased me in a visual way, with the makeup, tattoos and gangsta wardrobe being particularly offensive.

And that's it, that's my criticism.

I didn't go out there with a tin foil hat screaming "These Hollywood hacks are trying to brainwash me into worshipping Jared Leto!" or something like that. 

That's what I find bizarre about some of the reactions to the trailers of this particular film.
