He wants to help people from the first non Krypton scene in the film. The last scene is the creation of the Clark Kent we know and love.

I figured as much. I only have one question, and it's one of those things that kind of freaks me out if it's not true:

Does Krypton explode? Like, properly.

Since you said "sacrifice" would you say his death was heroic? Does he die helping other tornado victims at least?

Hey, I'm just a guy who was at the right place at the right time and wanted to pass along knowledge. I have a little blog where my buddies and I review Superman comics for fun. I'm studying for the LSATS. I post under my real name. I'm a person.

I know you guys get wonked out all the time by fakers, but I'm a regular guy who loves Superman and lucked out. I'm kinda sensitive today because people have doubts and I understand that. I'm not a scooper or a glory hound. Just a guy who got lucky.

Yeah he's helping people, but he dies because he's not willing to let Clark help him. He's not willing to have Clark exposed.

It's very MARVEL-- tying your hero's origin to a primal failure like that.

A basic one for you William. How did you find Hans Zimmer's score?

Hmm because thats the vibe im getting from the trailers-Jorel gives the inspirational talk-Jonathan is all about hiding yourself.Is there anything that shows Jonathan supporting clarks heroic side?

Damn you William, now you got me excited for this movie even more. 8 More days!!

But onto the topic, I have another simple one: how was the cinematography and just the overall direction visually?

It mimics the structure of BATMAN BEGINS very closely. It has a narrative theme and it will beat that theme into your head if it is the last thing it ever does. It is a better film because Superman's iconography is stronger, and this had well directed action scenes.

It is not really comparable to IRON MAN as that film was carried by the limitless charisma of its leading man.

Does the suit give Superman the ability to fly, or is flight a part of the powers he gained from the sun?
