Trivia

David S. Goyer mentioned there were supposed to be two scenes added in the movie: One where Jonathan and Martha Kent took baby Kal-El to a pediatrician, and have a hearing test on him, where the baby screams, and it blows out all the windows. In the second, after... ...


Quotes

Jor-El: Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Lor-Em: Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?


Goofs

Anyone who lives in Kansas (or any other state in "Tornado Alley") is taught that hiding under a bridge or an overpass in the middle of a tornado is likely suicide because of the uncontrollable debris fields & random possible funneling effects, which makes the winds even stronger, sucking people out to certain death. Jonathan Kent would have known this, and it is unthinkable he would tell others to hide under the nearby overpass.

However, while this would certainly be true in modern times, the scene in question takes place in 1997, as shown on Jonathan's tombstone. As mentioned in the Trivia section, overpasses were still considered safe in the 90s because of a news crew that famously escaped harm underneath one, and it wasn't until 1999 that the National Weather Service advised strongly that people avoid overpasses during tornadoes.
