Theology of Superman Part 2: “The World is Too Big Mom…..”

As previously detailed in my post “Theology of Superman,” the Superman story is one that is full of spirituality and Biblical symbolism.  This new trailer (see below) gives an excellent glimpse of what is in store when this story returns to the big screen next summer.  If you are looking for some excellent resources to take a deeper dive into the “spirituality of Superman” I recommend the books Superman: The High-Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero (particularly Chapter 3, “A Matter of Faith”) by Larry Tye and also the book Holy Superheroes!  Exploring the Sacred in Comics, Graphic Novels, and Film by Greg Garrett.

For now, enjoy this spectacular trailer (Music is “Elegy” by Lisa Gerrard and Patrick Cassidy, available on I-Tunes):
