Agree with your point here, that Snyder and Goyer should be allowed to tell their retooling of the Superman story. That, after a fashion, Man of Steel should be treated as an Elseworlds tale.

But I guess he needs to think everything is his fault or something at the end of the movie.
But if the movie doesn't show or hint at that, and you think that he did, aren't you drawing on the goodness of the character you already know from outside the movie? If you weren't familiar with Superman, would you be able to arrive at that thought from the movie alone? Would it have been obvious?
