I was thinking that these super hero movies keep looking more and more like Godzilla movies, minus the rubber suits and models of course, and that series came about as a result of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Seeing it again (and even the first time), I had to chuckle a bit at Jor-El's "You can save all of them" line to Kal. Yeah... about that, dad. It's a nice sentiment, but I think you meant "most of them". Some of them are going to get crushed pretty badly.
