Well, Clark/Superman is the protagonist - the story is about him. Jonathan is a supporting character.

...not only does it trivialise such an important character moment into a plot point, it's just so expected.
Until we see the movie, we can’t say how certain events will be handled - emotional or "trivialized" . But an accidental death isn’t intrinsically less meaningful than a natural one (both are tragic). In terms of being “expected,” I dunno. Traditionally, Jonathan dies by natural causes or he doesn’t die at all. An accidental death (that Clark might have prevented if not for saving others) is relatively novel.
