Extra points if Krypton is not the first thing we see.
Completely agreed.

Althought I'll be happy for Krypton to be the first thing we see if it's a scene relating to Zod's villainy/Zod and Jor-el's feud, and not just the 'krypton collapses - baby flies off' into space scene.

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
Flash: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
