Re: MAN OF STEEL - Grading & Discussion

I liked the scene where Clark visits a church before turning himself over to the military. I'm not sure this suggests that Clark was raised Christian by the Kents; the religious faith of superheroes seems to be a largely unexplored subject. It's too bad, unfortunately, that the scene had the reverend offering some really banal advice. "A leap of faith" is something that Clark could have heard from a Starbucks employee. What a cop-out. Couldn't screenwriter David Goyer come up with something a little better? I could be wrong, but "a leap of faith" doesn't sound to me like it's right out of the Gospels.
