Possible Detail For A Fight Sequence In MAN OF STEEL

Man Of Steel is out to make the non-action oriented Superman Returns a distant memory and according to this very small but very cool possible detail, it very well could do just that.

Bleeding Cool has a bit of information that they obtained at this years San Diego Comic Con regarding Man Of Steel. The information is not confirmed by them, but it is really cool none the less. The info they have been given is that during a fight sequence in the film Superman uses a building as a weapon. Here is exactly what Rich Johnston was told, "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." This rumor is unconfirmed at the moment so make sure you take this bit of information with a grain of salt. However, Snyder has said that he wants to make Superman relevant again, and based on this possible description it sounds like he just might.

Man Of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne with Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, and will be released on June 14, 2013.

He is gonna use building as a weapon?... WOW!O_O
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/18/2012, 6:24 AM
That must be one epic scene.
AmazingFantasy - 7/18/2012, 6:26 AM
...A building as a weapon you say...?



That's gonna tear shit up, can't wait.
ComicsCommando - 7/18/2012, 6:28 AM
How do you use a girder like a throwing star...? Just by throwing it?

Sounds epic but I don't understand.
Hellsing - 7/18/2012, 6:29 AM
Well its snyder, dude knows how to do epic action but hopefully that doesn't over shadow the story. And Superman returns was a bad movie because the characters were unengaging not because of the lack of action. And hopefully it has a healthy dose of humour too.

For those who don't know, A girder is a support beam used in construction.



Im guessing Supes will x-ray a building to see if it's empty and then rip out the steel girders and throw them into a large object (Ship, Doomsday? :D).

Awesome.

[frick] YES PLEASE CBM GODS LET THIS BE!!!!

I want Supes to grab Zod, smash his [frick]ing face into the wall of a building and just beat him down like a goddamn hackeysack.

Sorry, just overly excited for my fav hero to start kicking some ass finally. This is well-deserved action!

not so new..

God. Yes.

gunfire, punches & kicks . . . save it for the Expendables 2 (sorry sly).

cars as punching bags . . . save it for TIH.

Using buildings, planetoids, slingshot gravity punches, sonic boom takedowns, & hitting one upside the head with an aircraft carrier . . . that's what I want to see!
LP4 - 7/18/2012, 6:39 AM
The moment Supes throws his first on-screen punch, there will be a standing ovation
WesleyGibson - 7/18/2012, 6:41 AM
Jesus that one comment right there already blows Superman Returns outta the [frick]in water...
LP4 - 7/18/2012, 6:45 AM
@Nomis- I always hated that S-throw lol
beane2099 - 7/18/2012, 6:46 AM
Pretty cool. This better be a damn awesome flick. Superman deserves proper flickage.
polarkyle - 7/18/2012, 6:53 AM
superman wouldnt do that because there are probably people in that building that could be killed
Greengo - 7/18/2012, 6:58 AM
Omg. I'd like to see how they're gonna pull this off.
HavocPrime - 7/18/2012, 6:59 AM
God I hated that S throw.

But yay, Superman finally gets to punch something that can actually fight back :)
figuresmaniac - 7/18/2012, 6:59 AM
Haters will say what if there were some people inside the building bla bla bla
spiralblitze - 7/18/2012, 6:59 AM
mega!
dnno1 - 7/18/2012, 7:06 AM
I guess in 2013 we'll believe a man can fight.
Maximillion - 7/18/2012, 7:06 AM
I hope the story is true!! that would be AWEEEESOME!! The only good action in Superman Returns was the first scene where Sups stops the plane from crashing, rest of the movie was ...zzzzzzzzzzzzz...sleeper!!....That S throw looks so dumb now, ha! but back then it looked pretty cool!! Go figure?!?
spiralblitze - 7/18/2012, 7:07 AM
i still cant get over that 2 second video of Clark walking in slow mo engulfed in flames...epic, you wont see that shiz on any avengers movie and now this!
BackwardGalaxy - 7/18/2012, 7:07 AM
@figuresmaniac: If he uses his x-ray vision to check the building first, then it's fine.
Marxman12 - 7/18/2012, 7:07 AM
Sounds awesome!
dnno1 - 7/18/2012, 7:08 AM


There's your throwing star.
DrRockso - 7/18/2012, 7:16 AM
That little clip was funnier than all of Ted
valeriesghost - 7/18/2012, 7:18 AM
Good find dnno1!
SWelch - 7/18/2012, 7:18 AM
Sounds cool. But Snyder will most likely ruin it by over using slow motion as he does with all his movies.
valeriesghost - 7/18/2012, 7:19 AM
And great find Waylon
MovieMann - 7/18/2012, 7:21 AM
@Intruder

Well if there are still Girders showing then I doubt there is anyone in the building.
MovieMann - 7/18/2012, 7:22 AM
Also people can say what they will about Snyder's inabilty to craft a story.

The guy knows how to create great and memorable action sequences.
Nubase - 7/18/2012, 7:24 AM
i think snyder will tone down the slo mo in this movie, although its his trademark style, l think he knows he cannot over do it in this movie.

But the use of buildings as weapons that would be incredile to watch cos l remember set pics from one scene where a truck is impailed on a lamp post which must mean that both he and zod use objects around them
Nubase - 7/18/2012, 7:27 AM
@Just1Superguy

yeah the scene where zod punches supes into the bank vault was mad.

Will be seeing it imax quality this weekend but l'm sure it will be up in hd online by then
thetrojan - 7/18/2012, 7:29 AM
there is going to have to be slow motion in the movie otherwise,the audience will be unaware of whats going on.
Zod and superman have super speed,right?
If i had super speed capabilities i would be moving at that speed constantly .
thats the problem with superman and kryptonians in general..they are just too pwerful for humans .
but in a kryptonian versus a kryptonian battle,they should be evenly matched.unless one is called bubba the kryptonian and the other is maximus the mostly powerful the kryptonian.
oh my head hurts.
Zack Snyders head must also be hurting.

valeriesghost - 7/18/2012, 7:30 AM
I'm not tired of the use of ramping in movies just yet and Snyder does it the best. I'd take ramping over the overuse of shaky cam in a film any day. And since superman can move so fast, and I assume Zod and Faiora can as well, I think slo mo and ramping will be used in a way that will allow us to savor the awesomesauce :)
spiralblitze - 7/18/2012, 7:31 AM
i cant wait to see a better quality version!am also excited to find out what hints are dropped in relation to other super heroes!
ISeeStupidPeople - 7/18/2012, 7:35 AM
@dnno

Good find man, I was having a hard time picturing that with just a single girder.
dnno1 - 7/18/2012, 7:39 AM
@ISeeStupidPeople, thanks. I remembered those pictures of Cavil/Superman rescuing people and steel girders being around in a green screen. After seeing the Bleeding Cool article it started to make sense.
