Zack Snyder, director of the superhero blockbuster Man of Steel, says that he didn't add the Christ allusions to the film - they were there since the character's first appearance 75 years ago.

Snyder tells CNN, "The Christ-like parallels, I didn't make that stuff up. We weren't like, 'Hey, let's add this!' That stuff is there, in the mythology. That is the tried-and-true Superman metaphor. So rather than be snarky and say that doesn't exist, we thought it would be fun to allow that mythology to be woven through."
