Original Message Marketers for the newest Hollywood Superman movie, 'Man of Steel,' are heavily targeting Christians by offering church leaders free screenings of the film as well as sermon notes emphasizing its religious themes.

The notes, titled 'Jesus: The Original Superhero,' run nine pages long and suggest that pastors show the 'Man of Steel' trailer during their Sunday morning sermon, CNN reported Friday.
'How might the story of Superman awaken our passion for the greatest hero who ever lived and died and rose again?' the sermon notes ask.

Superman is sent to Earth from the planet Kryptonite by his parents, who predict 'he'll be a god' to the earthlings.

He is then raised by surrogate parents and at age 33, he must sacrifice himself to save the human race. Jesus Christ was 33 when he was crucified.

In one scene from the movie, Clark Kent seeks advice from a priest and in the background, there is a large painting of Jesus, providing viewers a side-by-side comparison of them.
