They did say darker 'as much as the characters allow' or something, which is a good sign.
Superman seemed pretty dark, and definitely creepy, in SR, what with stalking Lois Lane and all. I shudder to think how much more darker the character could be.
People always seem to quote that part as being something wrong with Superman. The point I got from it though was that at that point in the film he was so completely out of touch with his humanity that he doesn't even understand that he is acting incorrectly. It stressed his isolation from the people around him.
Jesus. That in and of itself tells you -- that isn't our Superman.
Superman doesn't look to humanity to learn how to behave. Superman leads the way. He is something for the rest of us to aspire to.
My Superman is anyway. I didn't recognize that sulking adolescent in SR.
