Anyway, back to discussing MoS and Superman. I didn't mention this in my comments on the film from earlier, but one of the things that I liked - particularly since I'm not that big of a fan of Superman but do know the characters and have some knowledge of their various dynamics as they've been brought to life in the past - was the way Goyer, Snyder, and Nolan had Lois willfully and deliberately seek out Superman's 'secret identity'; it gave the closing scene of him arriving at the Daily Planet a nice bit of nuance that you wouldn't have gotten any other way and made her line of 'Welcome to the Planet' both a professional greeting as well as a bit of an inside joke.
Having just praised that scene, though, I do have one tiny criticism about it, which is that Amy Adams - as phenomenal an actress as she is - played things a bit more subtly than I think she should have with the line and the scene when it comes to conveying that she knows who Clark really is.
That's really not much of a criticism, though, and is ultimately neither here nor there. It's just something I noticed as I was watching the movie.
The foundation of their future relationship is one of the big pluses of Man of Steel. It's built completely on trust and not just love/lust at first sight. They went through an experience in Man of Steel...the type to where relationships are bonded forever.
It's going to be great in the sequel.
