Daniel Louis Crumpton joins me to discuss one of my favorite films, Man of Steel. Man of Steel is a subtext rich, a visual feast. This film presents the idea of morality in a way that no Superman adaptation has before. Superman was always an infallible icon, but in Man of Steel, he struggles, he questions himself. He’s still an icon, but he’s a relatable one. We talk about General Zod and his single-minded focus on conquering Earth to restore Krypton as an entry point to a larger discussion about Kal El representing choice and how that’s important for the messiah story.
