if they have to use Biblical inspiration, keep it as Moses parallels, not Christ parallels... we had enough of that in the last movie, and its time to move on from that view of Superman.
But Moses is part of the Messiah archetype as is Jesus. I see Superman falling in that category and able to have traits of both regardless of the religion of his creators. To me, it simply gives him a more broader fan base.
