Just as a note, you might consider changing the headline. It's a little misleading to say that you're "hiring" when it's volunteer work.

You must lead a very sad/uneventful life.


Is that not called "just stop fucking listening to them"?

So maybe you should stop flipping out over people "not wanting to think" if we still don't know what's going to happen?

Not to get into the middle of your pissing match, but the movie as presented didn't wrestle with this, either. It talked about it a lot, but we weren't shown the ramifications of Superman appearing....

But Kryptonians could live fine on Earth. Better than on Krypton, even. That's what I didn't get, there's no point in terraforming unless it's for nostalgia's sake, otherwise why do it? I didn't...

Did they ever say why Zod wanted to terraform the planet? I mean, as a guy who tried to take over two separate planets over the course of the film, you'd think he'd be ok with having superpowers...

Haha yeah I didn't know it for a while either. But again, it depends on how these are produced. Miramax was definitely not Disney, but it was Disney-owned; if the Marvel Studios/Disney relationship...

I grew up in a Catholic household, so maybe it isn't a well known thing and that's why I didn't think it was that subtle? Not a big deal either way, that wasn't the biggest issue the film had haha.

The only time it was too on the nose for me was when he mentioned his age, where it was very obvious they were being specific with it. Came off like, "I've been here for 33 years... Get it, guys? ...

Neither does saying "earf" when that's clearly not what he says in the film but hey, some things happen without reason. Just go with the flow, man.
