@k4tzm4n: Like I said, I didn't put that much thought into it. They could have easily changed other scenes around as well to make Zod live, but that's not really what I'm on about. I'm just saying, "A headlock? really? The neck snap?" That's the only real issue I have with it. Superman has very obvious outs in that situation that don't involve him killing Zod, and potentially killing anyone else in the room since the lasers really shouldn't have stopped when Zod's head turned until he was actually dead.
I'm just saying that there are other possibilities that could've made it less, well .. arbitrarily ruthless. It's like when batman killed Two Face, bats didn't just stab the guy. He didn't even really want to kill harvey, but he did it anyways. That's what I would've gone for, rather than just a straight up kill. he could've made a point of it.
Zod shakes superman off when the Man of Steel tries to save the family. Zod breaks free, says something along the lines of "This why you're weak" or "you've failed" or something, goes to kill them, then superman kills him in a random moment of desperation.
I'm just not a fan of the whole Neck snap bit.
I agree with you brah.
