Snyder showed that it was not easy for the Kents and that they did the best they could to raise Clark and mold him into the man he was destined to be. When Pa Kent said Maybe to Clark asking if he should have let them die, he paused and wasnt sure of his answer but he knew that a few lives being saved might not be worth the global outcome in the end if he the world found out. And he was right, people are afraid of what they dont understand. I dont understand what people wanted out of this movie beyond what it gave us. Did it have some issues-yes but not the way the critics who bashed it and the negative people on here.
Sorry but it was most certainly bad advice. And his concern was never well founded as many people who Clark saved realized he must have been different but it never caused an uproar or the end of civilization
. Bad advice at worst, dubious advice at best.
