Man Of Steel Ending Explained
There is a sense of security and comfort that comes with control. Conversely, when we feel out of control, it causes anxiety and tension in us. While it might come naturally, “Man of Steel” is a cautionary tale that shows us there has to be a line in the sand somewhere. Krypton has taken control of its people and the planet. In doing so, the Kryptonians spawned a population of corrupt politicians, militant fanatics, and careless scientists while dooming their world to destruction. Have you ever noticed the destroyed moon floating in the sky of the Kryptonian landscape? It was an easter egg that references a moment in comic book history when an irresponsible scientist launched an experimental rocket onto the surface of the lunar satellite. Clearly, this was a sign of the direction Kryptonian society was heading. Ultimate control is tyrannical and it will backfire – always.
The hope is that Superman can help humanity achieve a different future. “You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive for. They will run after you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them work wonders”, says Jor-El to his adult son Superman shouldn’t just be the hero who rushes to save the day Because he’s untouchable, he can set an example for humanity Although the US government still fears Superman at the end of the movie and uses a spy plane to find Superman’s base, Superman forces them to come to terms with their fears and have some faith in him.
