Now, Zack Snyder is great at creating visually good looking scenes, still many scenes from SR looked good, I think that there are some shots in MOS that may remind some fans of SR. Visually similar looking scenes (even though in some cases, the context will be different.)
I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing. Specially about the Christ-like pose, which was enough in SR to make a number of fans yell: "SupermanisnotJesuuuuuuuuuuuus!!!!

While I totally agree with you here, the same can be said for STM and SII. Specially the first movie which had different tones all over.
