I'm hoping for something like that as it can finally flesh out the characters and highlight the real tragedy of krypton's destruction and Kal's loosing his birth parents.
This is what I'm talking about. When Krypton is destroyed it needs feel like a real tragedy...Not a time filler that serves only to set-up how Superman came to Earth.
