A Rumor on Man of Steel's Action?

#1 Posted by MB25 (335 posts) - - Show Bio

The upcoming Zack Snyder Superman movie Man of Steel doesn't come out til next June and besides the trailer shown at Comic-Con (expected to hit with The Dark Knight Rises), there aren't a lot of details of how it's going to hold up.

Over at Bleeding Cool they got a taste at Comic-Con from an unknown source of what they think is a sequence from the film, so possible spoiler ahead:

"But I have been told details of one specific scene in particular, in which Superman breaks apart a building and uses the building itself as a weapon in some kind of ‘super martial art’ fashion. “Girders as throwing stars” was the specific example I was given."

Again, treat this as a rumor for now but it does sound different from the 2006 film Superman Returns.

Henry Cavill plays Superman in the June 14, 2013 release. The film also stars Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent's adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner. Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman's native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman's mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman's father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.

Its still a rumor, but I think it looks very likely.

Rips apart a building? Damn, it's within his power but doesn't sound like something he'd ever do considering the risk to all the innocent civilians.

@Deranged Midget: I'm guessing the building doesn't necessarily have to be inhabited or there might not even be people around

i just hope it makes supes look cool people nowadays want there superheroes to be B.A. so having supes beat the crap out of Zod will help with that.

@MB25: No, but buildings are usually in decently populated areas.

@Deranged Midget: It'll probably be abandoned. Supposedly the Superman vs Zod fight involves a lot of inner city destruction so I assume the place they fight won't have any people. Superman wouldn't use a tactic like that if innocent people were nearby.

@SandMan_: @Lvenger: Fair enough, at least he'll be physically engaged in this film *cough* No action in Returns *cough*...

BTW just wanna say that this rumor is false.

The girder they found was actually meant to be a support and there was a video somewhere already.
