A lot of people didn't buy that scene because it doesn't make sense for a kid to play with a red cape in a world without Superman, since Superman is the reasons kids run around with capes.

Snyder says that the way he interprets it, Clark has an ancestral memory of Kryptonian fashion, so it made sense for him to instinctively wear a red cape. Further, though Jonathan Kent dies prior to ever seeing Clark fulfill his potential, with that scene, he gets to see Clark be Superman. So it's really a scene for Pa Kent.

I thought that was a good answer.

Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.
