Yeah but you gotta admit there's a difference to wanting your child to grow up and become some great engineer, to having his future planned with a scout ship waiting with Kryptonian outfit, and expecting the boy to impose himself on a completely different civilization changing their course of history forever.
Yes perhaps (hopefully) this won't happen explicitly. But it happened in the Donner films and the Smallville tv show (the 2 most popular Superman pieces in recent history). And the language implied from the trailers implies that it will happen again here.
