It would make the most sense given the interview hints about Kal-El being conflicted regarding Zod and company and how he has no one else from whom he can learn about Krypton. I don't like interpretations like STM or Smallville where Superman can constantly go back to an omnipotent AI version of his father for advice.
For me, I could never get enough of Brando as Jor-El, just like I could never get enough of Crowe as Jor-El.
