Default Re: Is Superman A Jesus Metaphor?

If they wanna throw in the allegories for Jesus or touch upon the religious undertones, I'd rather they just come out in the open with it instead of seeding an entire movie with it.

Just have Supes or Clark befriend a not-so fanatical priest and they could calmly discuss the (obvious) parallels with Supes as earth's savior. And Supes would respectfully shoot it down in his own grounded way. That way we'll get at least 2 sides to the character's motivations and symbolisms.

Might as well get it out of the way and not be so ambiguous about it. Could be done with in a matter of minutes really.
