No, for Superman, the usual interpretation given is more of a Christian one. I first encountered that idea back in the early 60s, and a number of books have been written on that particular theme, the earliest one I know of being The Gospel According to Superman (A.J. Holman, 1973), as written by Presbyterian minister John T. Galloway, Jr. And, if the comics themselves didn't contain enough such seeds, certainly the movies have advanced the notion considerably. One needs only to think of Jor-El's words in the first movie about sending "my only son" to Earth, because "they only lack the light to show them the way," or the scene in which Superman is stabbed in the side, and falls in a cruciform posture, in Superman Returns. And on one of the special features sections of the Man of Steel DVD, a director can be heard telling Henry Cavill to "assume the Jesus pose." Oh, and let's not forget that crucifixion pose of Clark on a scarecrow pole from the TV series Smallville.
But Harry Brod, author of Superman is Jewish?, and himself Jewish, takes a different approach. He carefully delineates the background of Jewish immigration to the USA, and how Jewish perceptions and legends played into the work of Jews in the entertainment industry, especially movies and comics, both of which had heavy Jewish presence. In Brod's thesis, Krypton does not represent Heaven, but rather the "Old World" of Europe, with its hostility toward those of the Hebrew race, while Earth represents the USA, with its promise of freedom. Thus, Clark Kent is not the Messiah, but rather the ultimate immigrant.

It's always fun going back to it, and I always feel that working on films like "American Hustle" and "Big Eyes," it always serves my growth and my need for complexity. And I think I can bring that to the films. So I take it just as seriously. I take things far too seriously, if I had to critique myself. I put a lot of energy and effort and research there.
So you enjoying switching back and forth between the smaller and larger projects?
Yes, I really learn from each film I'm on. "Man of Steel," that was the first film of that nature that I had worked on. And I learned a lot.
How many of these things are you locked into?
Locked?!? I'm trapped! [jokes] No. I'm committed through the next one. I know that.
How is it to bring all of these new people into that world?
It was fantastic. I didn't get to work with Gal that much but just having another girl on set, when I did get to work with her, was so much fun. That kind of energy was great. I worked away with the people that I worked with before, which was wonderful.
How was Ben as Batman?
He's hot! Sorry, Jen. I have the utmost respect for your relationship, but he looks fantastic. And the work that I did with him, I think it's going to be great.

If there's anything I've missed please don't hesitate to let me know.
So if she was with Wonder Woman, did she get to see the whole trinity - Wonder Woman, Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) - in costume?
"I can't really say!" Adams continued. "But I will say that Gal looks really, really good in that costume. I was like, really? They make them like you? That's awesome... For you. I'm really happy for you. Not so much for me. But, Lois is a mortal."
Preview pages for "Batman/Superman #17" indicate that the woman is Glory Miau... formerly known as Felicity Regan.
An article at BleedingCool.com speculates that the young woman could be the same "Regan" from the famous would-be suicide jumper scene from Grant Morrison's "All-Star Superman".
However, it seems more likely, that the girl is actually "Felicity", a different would-be suicide jumper from J. Michael Straczynski's "Grounded" story.
