What’s actually notable right here, although is what a traditional Superman pose that is. This is a very cool shot, and appears like a Curt Swan/Murphy Anderson drawing of the Man of Steel come to life.
Unlike that first shot, that is DEFINITELY from the resurrection of Superman scene. In the foreground there’s a photograph of Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent sinking within the water/chemical bathtub simply as Cavill’s Superman is being lowered into it within the background. Costner’s “you’re here for a reason” speech right here faintly echoes the one Glenn Ford as Pa Kent gave younger Clark in Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie, as nicely.
Amy Adams as Lois Lane appears to be coaxing a just lately resurrected Clark to come back together with her, as they stand on the grounds of the Kent farm. With the space between them, and Adams’ beseeching gesture, is it doable that at this level Clark is “alive” however not but absolutely “aware” of who he’s?
In the theatrical minimize of Justice League, when the group first awakens Superman he’s disoriented and fights them. So the human connection, first with the lady he loves after which with the place he grew up may be what makes the distinction and reminds him of his human soul, regardless of his Kryptonian upbringing.
Clark has put a shirt on right here, so we will assume that this embrace with Lois and Diane Lane’s Martha (!!!!) is the next morning, after he has reacclimated to the land of the residing, has his full thoughts and soul again below management, and is able to ship the feel-good ass kicking of the 12 months to Steppenwolf, Darkseid, and a complete mess of Parademons.
