Ha bloody ha.
The thing about this scene and the way it's similar to something from the Nolanverse Batman movies tells something about how it had to be this way for Man Of Steel
due to the way that Superman Returns
was received by fanbois and the public alike (Superman [Brandon Routh] is too 'gay', the plot took too long to happen, etc.) Better put up with this, because it's what we'll be getting for a while.
