I said biblical, not necessarily of Christ. Take the image of someone washing their hands in the fountain, as one example I can easily recall. That was clearly a reference to Pontius Pilate imagery. How it fits into the zombie apocalypse narrative... it doesn't. That's the point. Snyder uses imagery for its personal aesthetic appeal to himself, not as a representation anything else.

And yet His representative quivers in Superman's presence.

Oh, good lord, no. Even Superman Returns was better than this dreck.
