Possible Description of Two Scenes from Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL [Updated With New Info]

     May 15, 2012


This summer’s superhero fare is off to a great start with the smashing success of The Avengers, and we’ve still got The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man to look forward to.  If you think that sounds like a crowded superhero year, remember that we almost also had Superman in the mix.  Man of Steel was moved from December 2012 to the summer of 2013, and though we really haven’t seen much from director Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, we’re most likely getting our first look at the film at Comic-Con in July.

Someone claiming to be a visual effects supervisor has taken to the ever-accurate IMDb message boards to write up a description of two scenes from Man of Steel.  He claims to have seen the clips during a sizzle reel for Weta at a visual effects conference.  The description includes impressions of Henry Cavill as Superman, Michael Shannon as General Zod, and Snyder’s signature visual flair.  Hit the jump to read on.

Update: The unnamed IMDb user who posted the original description has posted an update which adds credibility to his post.

Update 2: We’ve been asked by WB to take down the descriptions.

Here’s the entirety of the message board post, via IMDb:


My main qualm with this reboot has always been Zack Snyder, and if this post is to be taken as fact then it sounds like he hasn’t ditched his signature style for Man of Steel.  I’ll hold judgment until I see the trailer with my own eyes, but I’m beyond interested to see what his take on Superman looks like.  Man of Steel is set to be released on June 14th, 2013.

Update: Here’s what he added on IMDb:
