John Aravosis says "Man of Steel" not about Jesus

Apparently the idea that the new Superman movie is about Jesus is just a scam by marketers to steal money from the pockets of church-goers. They're stretching the Jesus comparison -- a lot.
[T]his is no “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” that bludgeons the viewer with its Christianity. One must squint to see the Jesus between all of the explosions.
I trust John, so I guess it's possible for an atheist to enjoy this movie. And if he's right and the marketing push is a scam aimed at Christians, the pastors who urged their flocks to see this movie are probably feeling quite foolish today.
