Man of Steel is kinda looking like a Valve game. Take Half-Life 2 for instance, it's seemingly revolutionary ideas like physics related gameplay has actually been done before, just not well. Valve took ideas that others had played around with somewhat unsuccessfully and through great vision and creative savvy made them awesome. It looks this movie is doing the same with a lot of ideas from modern Superman interpretations in both the comics and other media. The seeming use of ideas from Smallville and Earth One are most exemplary of that approach. I'd say those two interpretations are overall divisive at best, but Goyer doesn't seem to care about the source of an idea, just whether it has potential.
