Why not? We already saw a light-hearted version of it in the `78 picture. In the sequel he stopped a terrorist attack. And in Superman IV he tried to rid the world of nuclear weapons. Snyder and Nolan could take a cue from those movies and do a better job of it. Superman fighting aliens and monsters is fun and all, but it doesn't make him relatable. A superman who ASSISTS in fighting everyday crime and saves people from everyday dangers is a good thing. Heck, even Sam Raimi did it with Spider-Man! How many times did we see Peter Parker run into a burning building? How many times did he rescue children who didn't look both ways before crossing the street?
