WHO HAS BETTER HEARING AND WHY? dcu and mcu versions only

When IGN sat down for a chat with the BvS director, we asked why Superman can’t hear his mother’s screams and cries for help when she’s kidnapped by Lex Luthor late on.

“I think all the way – to me, from Metropolis to Smallville is probably just on the edge of his range of hearing” he explained. “Also the clutter of the city makes it difficult as well."

Not sure about live action can't remember much from Supes apart from hearing Lois

IGN should have next asked where Superman was supposed to be both when Lois was abducted in the desert and when she was pushed from the top of the LexCorp tower. In both of those instances, it would seem most likely that Clark was not even on the same continent as Lois.

IF we go by comics he kal el can hear sounds in vacuum of space and can hear ol the noises and conversations happening on earth. so he should have better hearing.

@rukus4ever:

correct! good catch

The quote sounds inconsistent with the movie. I makes me think he's trying to cover for a lot of questions he's getting about his treatment of Superman. I'm sure I'm not the only person who has been questioning why Clark could not have saved his mother on his own.

What are your thoughts on this?
