The difference would be from Superman politely knocking on a door, to smashing it down without a seconds thought.

That, in a way, does make Superman seem a guy that makes mistakes, which makes him someone the audience can relate to. I wouldn't mind that for the first movie, showing Superman growing more responsible and less of character like Batman. Cause the 1 real complaint about Batman Begins that I have, is for the fact that Bruce is dead sure of his path at the beginning of the movie. He doesn't seem to grow or show conflict within himself at all. He is who he is all throughout the movie. With Superman, I want to see him grow. Essentially from the character that he was from 1938, to who he was before Flashpoint. That would be interesting to see IMO.
I don't think Bruce was always certain of what he wanted to do. He started off wanting to murder Joe Chill in cold blood, murder and revenge, two things uncharacteristic of who he would become. Plus, even once he started on the path of becoming Batman, he didn't know what his methods would be until Ducard helped guide him.
