    It's gone. That's why that scene was so important with him flying away from Jor-El, in a sense, he was saying goodbye to his roots metaphorically.

    If they went against that, to me, it would need to really be there such as Agent Coulson's death so it isn't disrupted in what happens in the first film.

    Nothing is truly gone in comics.....it's alien tech.....nanotech at that....self-regenerating.

    This isn't a comic.

    I think Snyder is trying to really put some focus on Superman being THE last son of Krypton(and should be the title of the sequel) by taking away all connection to Krypton as well, including a Fortress of Solitude by having it destroyed.

    To me, especially here, it's that aspect of just because you can do it doesn't mean you should do it and if you do it - for some things, I'd count this as one of them - you really have to have a good reason and explanation to.

    It wasn't a Fortress of Solitude in the first place.

    It was a ship.

    He never used it as a fortress, or for solitude.

    I don't think we've seen the Fortress yet. Not the real one, at least.

    I would like to see a more old school Arctic ice cavern FOS. A place where he takes the left over alien tech and wreckage from the Metropolis battle and what's left to be salvaged from the World Engine in the Indian Ocean. Make it a place not made by Kryptonian tech for Superman but made by Superman as a place for Kryptonian tech. At least that's the what it starts out as.

    No, that was the Fortress, Snyder went on record saying it was.

    Now, that doesn't necessarily mean that there can't be a new one in the sequel. They can always go the classic route and have him build it in the side of a mountain in the Arctic.

    Perhaps Superman is not the sole survivor. Not sure if this has been brought up but does anyone find it odd that the FoS ship had a sleeping chamber that was empty? One had a skeleton and the other looked like someone had awaken and left.

    I'd imagine we'll see it in the next film, in the meantime he'll have to make do with the 'Shed of Loneliness' in the backyard.

    It could be a symbolic Fortress of Solitude. Either way it looks like by the end of the movie Superman had found another place to hang his cape.

    If the Krypton tech plays a role in the sequel I hope that a throw away line explains that he did collect/confiscated it. Hopefully in a FOS like I stated before. It's not a biggie to me that it was not addressed in MOS.

    Prequel comic covered that. It was Supergirl, who was part of a team that was terraforming a new world. A murderous stowaway commandeered the ship. They fought...she stabbed him with what looked like red kryptonite...and then one of them (it didn't show which) walked out after the crash. It also showed an Eskimo family that had the S symbol painted on their little hut or whatever they are called...so at some point they either met a living Supergirl, or at least found her body or something.

    Shed of Loneliness? How about an Alcove of Singlehood?

    It was meant to be the Fortress for the movie.

    It still doesn't mean we can't see a new Fortress (in the old style, not Donner styled) in an MOS sequel. Of course that's not a deal breaker for me.

    That's what I said above.

    I'm just reiterating that Snyder et al, meant for the ship to be the Fortress in the movie.
