Due to his success with the Batman franchise, Christopher Nolan was brought on to help develop this movie, along with screenwriter David S. Goyer. This was merely as a creative consultant, it was never intended for Nolan to direct. When Zack Snyder was later brought on as director, Nolan chose to hand all creative control over to Snyder and focus on The Dark Knight Rises (2012). According to Nolan's wife, producer Emma Thomas, "They (Nolan and Goyer) brought it to an appropriate screenplay, and it's now Snyder's picture." See more »
Anyone who lives in Kansas (or any other state in "Tornado Alley") is taught that hiding under a bridge or an overpass in the middle of a tornado is likely suicide because of the uncontrollable debris fields & random possible funneling effects, which makes the winds even stronger, sucking people out to certain death. Jonathan Kent would have known this, and it is unthinkable he would tell others to hide under the nearby overpass.
However, while this would certainly be true in modern times, the scene in question takes place in 1997, as shown on Jonathan's tombstone. As mentioned in the Trivia section, overpasses were still considered safe in the 90s because of a news crew that famously escaped harm underneath one, and it wasn't until 1999 that the National Weather Service advised strongly that people avoid overpasses during tornadoes.

Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Look to the stars, like our ancestors did! There are habitable worlds within reach. We can begin by using the old outposts.
Are you seriously suggesting that we evacuate the entire planet?
No, everybody here is already dead. Give me control...

I never had the opportunity to see this film in theatres, though, after my first viewing at home, I was instantly blown away by the tone, visuals, soundtrack, story, performance, thriller and action to this film.
Man of steel truely felt as though it was an alien invasion film set in our present time.
Superman has literally searched to find himself and when he does, he must learn not only learn his origins, though his abilities and how to use them.
He was bound to question himself and make mistakes along the way and following his journey is something I'm extremely excited for.
Most certainly a superhero film for adults.
