This weekend I saw the next movie you’ll show clips of in your services. (Assuming you’re done with DaVinci.)
No spoilers about Superman here, other than to make that prediction. A feature article on the movie in the June 23 issue of Entertainment Weekly quotes an actor from the film who said, “If somebody gave you $200 million to make a movie that could reach the most people you could—who would it be about? The answer is either going to be Superman or Jesus.”
You don’t need to look very hard to see elements of both. Between the title character’s flashbacks about his connection to his father Jor-El, the reminder that Jor-El sent his son to earth to help a misguided world, the insistence of Lois Lane that “the world doesn’t need a savior and neither do I,” and some Passion-esque moments with Lex Luthor’s henchmen, you’ll find enough to inspire at least one message on Jesus as the real super man.
