Crying over having killed is one thing, crying over seeing his failure to protect the people of Metropolis is another. He won the battle but lost the war.
I've only seen it once and can't recall if they even addressed the aftermath. Something with him looking at the devastation in horror or sadness would of sufficed. Although he cries in Lois's arms we don't know the entirety of his grief. Even though I really enjoy the film I think it would of been better to let the audience mourn or mull over the destruction.
