It adds to the psychology and notion of 'good behaviour', and why Superman strongly enforces it.

It was just about adding layers to his psychology
I just think your twisting it into something very angsty.

It's fine to say that Superman got his good morals from his parents, and that the way they raised him has a lot to do with why he's so good.

It's weird to say that Superman sticks to good morals because he's afraid of his parents being dissapointed in him.

That sounds more like Dexter than Superman.

Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
