All the while the people who complained that he saved nobody complained about him killing to save.

We planly see in the final battle Metropolis is still largely intact but because theres no scene dedicated to the press surveying the damage peoples imaginations ran wild.

Theres countless people who believe Metroplis was totally destroyed

Max Landis was upset Lois was invited to a game because he mistakenly believed a: the daily planet scene took place 24 hours later and b: the stadium was destroyed with most of the city.

I guess it could be considered a flaw in snyders direction.

For a few days I even thought Superman screamed after killing zod because he saw the family dead, as there isnt a clear shot of them alive afterwards.
Even when I saw the movie for the first time... I never thought that the Daily Planet scene happened 24 hours after the destruction of Metropolis.

I never thought that Superman screamed after he killing Zod as the family died, it was because he was responsible for Zod's death, one of the few survivors of his Kryptonian race.

It is really weird how people can imagine what is not intended, but at the same time cannot imagine what the filmmakers want you to imagine.
