Default Re: How Superman Resolved the Issue of Zod *MEGA SPOILER*

Didn't realise Nolan was initially against the ending.

Quote:
"In the original version of the script, Zod just got zapped into the Phantom Zone," Snyder told Empire. "But [writer] David [S Goyer], Chris and I had long talks about it, and I said that I really feel like we should kill Zod, and that Superman should kill him.

"The 'Why?' of it for me was that if it was truly an origin story, his aversion to killing is unexplained.

"I wanted to create a scenario where Superman, either he's going to see [Metropolis's citizens] chopped in half, or he's gotta do what he's gotta do."

Goyer went on to explain that he had always been in support of the idea, but it had taken longer to convince Nolan, whose original response had been: "There's no way you can do this."

"I came up with this idea of heat vision and these people about to die," Goyer said. "I wrote the scene, gave it to Chris, and he said, 'OK, you've convinced me'."

You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.
