* CreatorPreferredAdaptation: [[http://comicbook.com/2015/07/06/superman-legend-dan-jurgens-man-of-steel-handled-zods-death-bett/ Unlike]] some other ''Superman'' writers, Dan Jurgens (of ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' fame) [[spoiler: has no problem with Superman killing Zod and actually ''prefers'' how Zod's death was handled as something done in the heat of the moment and to protect a family as opposed to the cold execution at the end of John Byrne's run.]]



* DisownedAdaptation: With regards to [[spoiler: Superman killing Zod near the end of the movie]], Creator/MarkWaid, the writer of ''ComicBook/SupermanBirthright'' and ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'', hated it so much that he nearly walked out from the theater after that scene was played. Initially, Creator/ChristopherNolan was also against that scene but he changed his mind when he was convinced that it would show Superman as being a raw and still unformed superhero who had not yet fully become the experienced hero he can be.
** While he did not reacting as strongly as Waid, Creator/GrantMorrison wasn't [[http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/movienewsandreviews/news/?a=84536 too happy about the scene either.]]
