That aspect could've been just as great if it seeped organically out of the story, and not Goyer unimaginatively trying to ape Begins. The added thread of Krypton also muddled the timeline way too much for it to work like BB.

Alan Moore on comics:

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
