I haven't seen the film. I heard about this and scene a clip on line where Supermans has a smug smile as he easily beasts Steppenwolf.
So, doesn't this beg the question of why you need the Justice League when you have Superman? What is the point of all the other heroes if Superman can single-handidly solve the problem in a few minutes at best?
The other is a common criticism is Superman is overpowered. Unless you have kryptonite or another Kryptonian outnumbering him nothing hurts him. The complaint is there is no suspense in his films and he is even harder to relate to. Doesn't this film only reinforce that idea?
This goes for the comics, too. In the film they had an easy out even if they didn't have Steppenwolf being a major threat to Kal, he was rendered inactive at one point, that could have happened BEFORE the big bad went down. Missed opportunity. they need to showcase that just one person can't do it all all of the time.
Plus there hasn't been any mystical threat to him yet.
