Man of steel seems the "hope and optimistic" take on the good nature of america empowering and guiding a stranger to the world, I wouldn't be surprised if the film took some religious subtext (even though it being a superman story pretty much guarantees that). I expect everything from the music, to the cinematography to feel like everything the dark knight was not.
