I saw Superman Returns over the weekend and I have to say that the Christian imagery was overpowering! Superman’s “real” father sends him to Earth because even though the people aren’t perfect, they have good in them, they have potential that is “worth saving”. There is a struggle in Lois Lane as to whether the world needs Superman, similar to the conflict of the real world as to whether or not it needs a savior.
The scene that affected me the most was where Superman takes Lois flying far above the earth and he says to her: “What do you hear?” And she says “nothing” and he replies: “I hear everything”. It was such a reminder of Jesus hearing all of us calling out to him in our need and how we often don’t hear each other’s cries for help because we’re so self absorbed.
Anyone else catch this?
