Everything I'm reading and seeing about this film (especially that recent Zimmer interview) makes me think that Man of Steel would be a perfect counterpoint to The Dark Knight Trilogy. If that trilogy was a cynical and pessimistic look at how a man strives to empower and inspire the everyday post 9/11 american citizen, tackling themes of corruption, terrorism, mass hysteria, economic instability. Man of steel seems the "hope and optimistic" take on the good nature of america empowering and guiding a stranger to the world, I wouldn't be surprised if the film took some religious subtext (even though it being a superman story pretty much guarantees that). I expect everything from the music, to the cinematography to feel like everything the dark knight was not.
