With man of steel we had a writwr who admitted to not really being into Superman who basically felt the character needed to be reinvented and changed to work in a modern context. They wanted to make him cool at any cost. Goyer loved Batman and it shhoowed in his writing of Begins. Its the mostt definitive version of the character on screen. He didnt love superman and that showed too
All this cause they(all of them) wanted to deconstruct why superman is superman in a more tangible way?
They wanted to make him cool
-Why does tony stark have a no killing rule? Oh right he doesn't.
-Why does Wolverine have a no killing rule? Oh right he doesn't.
-Why does Cap? Oh righ....
-Why does Batman? Cause his parents were murdered and he sore to protect life. He also came face to face with the murder and felt empty at the prospect of taking his life. Any fool can see this.
-Why does superman have a no killing rule? Because his parents taught him better?
