I guess what I'm saying is they could have had Superman kill someone in a way that wouldn't have caused this much controversy. But controversy is obviously what they wanted.
Getting people talking about the character is what they wanted. That's not the same as "they wanted controversy".
So if they killed off zod in a playful way with light hearted music playing and people smiling and cracking jokes like a marvel movie, or rather superman 2 then we wouldn't be having this discussion?
if that's so I praise them for having the guts to give the scene and the matter the gravitas it deserved.
