Re: How Superman Resolved the Issue of Zod *MEGA SPOILER*
the thing is, the Man of Tomorrow angle doesn't hold up in this film. From what I remember in the comics, Krypton was a peaceful planet where killing was forbidden. That's part of the whole Man of Tomorrow mythology. Earth is supposed to use Superman's example of no death penalty tactics to eventually become more like Krypton. But by removing it from the film's mythology, it's a mute point.
Joss Whedon's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is the cinematic equivalent of Tony Stark building an Iron Man suit in a cave with a bunch of scraps
