Smallville's John Schneider Dislikes Man Of Steel's Jonathan Kent


It’s not easy being Jonathan Kent.

Even after sacrificing himself in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, Superman’s adopted father is catching flack from, well, Superman’s adopted father. John Schneider, who played Jonathan Kent in the Superman prequel series Smallville, recently spoke ill of The Man of Steel’s interpretation of the famed Kansan, played by Kevin Costner.

Hmm, I don't think he meant literally let the school bus kids drown or don't save them. I think John was just kinda given a sudden question that was hard to answer. If I had a son, super powered or not I wouldn't be comfortable with him putting himself in danger. Especially in the amounts of danger Clark would be in had he revealed himself to the world. I think that's where the MoS John was kinda getting at. I think he could've been fleshed out a bit more but I still think he was a good Jonathan Kent.

My problem with MOS's Jonathan Kent is that he offered no real guidance to Clark. He just contradicted himself a dozen times with a bunch of trailer fodder lines.

I have to agree with the Smallville dad. I think John Kent scenes were some of the worst in the whole movie. First he shows little confidence in what he's actually telling Clark and what he is saying is idiotic at some points then he willingly sacrifices himself for no reason while also dying in the most fake tornado I have seen in a long time. I'm sorry to say if a tornado is 5ft away from you you will be feeling just as much wind when it's 0ft. They even gave him time to run but he just stood there wanting to die lol.

I think they should've just had him die of a heart attack like the original, showing that Clark couldn't have saved him regardless of his powers, rather than sacrificing himself in a tornado.
