Did you see Superman Returns? I saw it twice; I had read little snippets that there was significant Christian symbology in it, but it was much more obvious to me when I saw the movie. Warning, spoilers below, so don’t click if you don’t want to know:
Jur-El telling his son Kal-El that he’s sending him to earth because humans “lack the light to show the way. For this reason I have sent them you, my only son.”. Some have pointed out that “El” is the Hebrew word for God.
When Superman says something like, “You say that people don’t need a savior, but every day I hear people crying out for one.” That was beautiful.
When Lex Luther stabs Superman in the side, did it remind you that Christ was pierced in the side by the Roman guard?
When Superman “dies”, he falls to earth with arms outstretched like a cross.
Is he in the hospital 3 days before he lives again? When the nurse checks his room and finds it empty, I thought, “Mary Magdelene!”
What do you think? Am I reading too much into it? Did you notice other Christ-like symbolism?
