Zack Snyder has explained why the Man of Steel didn’t use his powers to find Martha in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Before the showdown between the Man of Steel and Caped Crusader, Lex Luthor kidnapped Martha Kent in order to coerce Superman into fighting Batman. While some have wondered why Superman, who is faster than a speeding bullet, couldn’t have used have his abilities to locate Martha, Zack Snyder revealed that there was a scene in which Superman attempted to use his super hearing to find his mother. However, upon hearing the cries for help throughout the world, Superman realizes that trying to find Martha this way means he will have to ignore those pleas.
