Listen here for audio of radio interviews about films from a Christian perspective with Pastors Ted Giese and Todd Wilken on IssuesEtc.org where Christianity meets culture.
In this conversation we review both Justice League (2017) and Murder on the Orient Express (2017). We talk about the reboot of the DC character of Superman in Man of Steel (2013) and how Zack Snyder’s approach to the character complete with marketing which encouraged Christian pastors to draw a comparison between Jesus and Superman in their preaching makes such comparisons fair game when looking at this new film. Especially when thinking about the “resurrection” of Superman in Justice League as compared to the Biblical account of Jesus’ resurrection that first Easter morning. News flash one of these things is not like the other.
