It's not a speech that makes sense regardless of when it's given. He dies shorty after Kal-El is sent away. There's no reason for him to assume that his son is going to turn into a shining example of goodness. Compare his speech to Jonathan's and the latter'sis so much more plausible.

Fair enough. Seeing as this is an origin film, we should be getting the send off scene much like S:TM had.

Do you want to see the Moses allegory in this film or do you want to see it throughout the series? Sequels won't have the luxury of having Kal-El being sent away again.
Nope, I'd rather not see any more religious allegory than is necessary. No Moses, Jesus, Buddha, or any other such references if it can be avoided. Let Superman be himself.

Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters. - Greg Rucka
