Re: Official Man of Steel Trailer(s) Thread - Part 4
My take on the "maybe" line.
Jonothan loves Clark with all of his heart, afterall he's the son he and Martha had tried for years to get only for him to one day fall from the stars.
However, alongside his love for the child Jonothan has fear. he knows Clark is different, he fears the world will see him as a threat or that he'll be taken away and experimented on.
Clarks true heritage has to remain secret so that Jonothan can keep his son safe.
When asked should Clark have let the people on the bus die Jonothan answered in an honest way, a selfish way perhaps. His only thought is keeping his son safe, hidden.
