Fair use rationale for Image:Superman man of steel 3.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Superman man of steel 3.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Not only the title inspired the movie Man of Steel directed by Zack Snyder, the story itself has a lot of details taken directly from John Byrne´s comics. The kryptonian birth chambers, clark journey around the world saving people and the depiction of his super powers a all inspired by THE MAN OF STEEL. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:58, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

This was also Byrne's way to emphasize the Kents being chosen caretakers rather than them being a random couple who finds a baby in a rocket. The idea was not used because DC wanted Kal-El to be sent to Earth alone, but the idea of them being chosen was explored later in the television series, Smallville and in the novel Superman: Last Son of Krypton.[21]

This is misleading -- Last Son of Krypton predates Man of Steel by many years. 2601:647:4000:FF8B:4DCA:211D:1278:A770 (talk) 21:26, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
