While I’m not crazy about all the set photos leaking in from Man of Steel and The Dark Knight Rises, I’m glad that they’re at least shooting outdoors and not in front of a green screen. Yes, there will be CG elements animated in, but its a nice change of pace for Man of Steel director Zack Snyder who made digital environments his home for 300 and the majority of Sucker Punch. These new set photos are from a scene where a tornado rips through Smallville and that’s why actors are huddling under a bridge. I don’t consider that to be a spoiler because these scenes take place in the Midwest (they’re filming in Sugar Hill, IL) and tornados tend to there. If it were a hurricane or the actors were cowering from an angry troll, that would be a different story.
Hit the jump to check out the set photos. The film stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Julia Ormand, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens June 14, 2013.
