It's way better, and more sensible, than Superman killing his own son. That would have been way too dark and depressing for the Superman franchise.
Anyway, what you read was just a basic plot outline - it's what Singer had pitched to WB. There was no script yet at that point, and I am confident that if the film had gotten to script stage, many changes would have been made to that initial outline anyway.
