Whenever that new and shortly lived television series 'Terra Nova' was airing, one of the episodes revolved around two meteors crashing down. Now
during the week of the debut of that particular episode, there were apparently two near-miss asteroids coming soon. What was real interesting is that
not only was that episode hinting at this but the entire line-up was revolved around 'end of the world'.
In a lot of the big hit films there are always hints or coincidences to current events, what strikes me with the new Superman movie is the timing of
the scandals; the movie wasn't made shortly after Snowden released these 'not so secret' secrets and really anyone with half a brain already knows
that dissent is monitored but left alone as to not create martyrs of any unwanted causes/concerns.
Although, there is a factor that weakens any arguments of some secret initiative to brainwash the masses. That is, in any story it is heavily
influenced by the creators/writers worldviews. In western society, the majority(whether we believe or not) is influenced by our Judeo-Christian
heritage and thus reflects that view. You'll notice that in Superman the birth control was labeled 'unnatural' and was closely associated with the
destruction of society which was also coupled with the draining of natural 'unrenewable' resources. If you were to watch a movie that was
'pro-choice' or any pro-political stance you may find that the writers/directors whoever down the line had a view similar to the story they
With that said, there are some peculiarities in films/books that may or may not fit this explanation. It never hurts to speculate as long as we keep
it rational and understand that our beliefs/ideas aren't set in stone(or in this case steel).
