Monica Key has posted some rather interesting information over at Examiner featuring revealing and intriguing new details about the scenes set to be filmed on the "Smallville" Man of Steel set in Plano, IL. You can head on over there to read more by clicking the link below, and be sure to check out the Superman: Man of Steel (2013) Facebook page by clicking HERE.

According to Plano Area Chamber of Commerce executive Richard Healy, "They're going to be blowing stuff up." Healy also states at some time during the filming soldiers will repel from a helicopter onto the set. Whatever weapons they will be shooting, Healy also added that brass shell casings would be left on the streets.


What do you guys think? Will we see Superman take on the military, or could this have something to do with General Zod attacking Smallville?! We know that Man of Steel will have a large military presence in the form of Harry Lennix's General Swanwick and Chris Meloni's Colonel Hardy, so stay tuned for more information as and when we have it.

STARRING:

Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman
Amy Adams as Lois Lane
Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent
Diane Lane as Martha Kent
Michael Shannon as Zod

RELEASE DATE: June 14th, 2013.

MovieMann - 8/7/2011, 2:32 PM
Zach Snyder is directing! Did any one actually think there wouldn't be tons of action in this movie?!
SugarYumYum - 8/7/2011, 2:36 PM
Blowing stuff up? Brass shell casings? In Smallville???-- possibly meaning that before he even gets to Metropolis he'll already have seen some action?! Sweeettt.

@PaulRom: Once I read "blowing stuff up", I expected to see at least one Micheal Bay joke. XD

zod vs the military in smallville sounds cool to me.
gangbuster - 8/7/2011, 2:55 PM
I wonder if it will follow the Secret Identity storyline and have Clark in Smallville being tracked by the Feds.

deadshotzero - 8/7/2011, 3:21 PM
i agree gentlemen tone it down a bit

duncanmenk24 - 8/7/2011, 3:57 PM
if there are soldiers firing at something/someone in smallville, that could only mean they're up againts general zod and company there...
superbatspiderman - 8/7/2011, 4:05 PM
This is already more action than Superman Returns.
razor - 8/7/2011, 4:15 PM
"They're going to be blowing stuff up." Wow, that is some info!
aaronite1999 - 8/7/2011, 4:19 PM
This brings back some awful memories from some pitiful episodes of Lois & Clark when Smallville was attacked by evil Kryptonians.... shudder...

Keeping my fingers that Man of Steel will be great, though!
PoPcornDude - 8/7/2011, 5:00 PM
Finally Sups gonna get some action !!!
lol
Supes17 - 8/7/2011, 5:21 PM
ZOD IS GOING TO KICK MAJOR BUTT!
Supes17 - 8/7/2011, 5:22 PM
I just want Snyder to say the words "Superman is going to fight someone"
THAT ALONE WILL CONVINCE ME TO WATCH THIS MOVIE IN THE IMAX SCREEN
PaulRom - 8/7/2011, 5:46 PM
@SugarYumYum LOL same here. :P Michael Bay was actually the first thing that came to mind when I read the part about blowing stuff up.
ShadowlordSavage - 8/7/2011, 5:59 PM
YES!!!! Action is what I've been waiting to see, but over all everything has to be great too.
marvel72 - 8/7/2011, 6:02 PM
@ teabag

gemma is turning up in casuality as a nurse soon. :)
NextHero08 - 8/7/2011, 7:20 PM
Wow.....so Superman is gonna get shot at. That's original. HEY! ANYBODY REMEMBER WHEN SUPERMAN GOT SHOT IN THE EYE! THAT WAS SOOOOO COOOOL! Get so excited over nothing.
NOLAntern - 8/7/2011, 7:33 PM
Holy balls.. Josh, who is that brunette!?
thalidomide - 8/7/2011, 7:45 PM
"They're going to be blowing stuff up." So original....
riddlemethis09 - 8/7/2011, 9:08 PM
my dad's 1970 monte carlo might be one of the vehicles that is being "blown up" with effects. so, there is a little bit of the time frame for the movie.
Fastestmanalive - 8/7/2011, 9:38 PM
NICE!!
Action, not like in SR where there was absolutely no dialogue, but I guess it fits in well with the rest of Singers silent movie.
But shit blowing up is always a good thing, cant have too much of that lol
LP4 - 8/7/2011, 11:31 PM
So wait does this confirm then that casting is complete?

Damn...where's Jimmy Olsen??? -_-

Oh well, this scene sounds cool...at least we know there's action in this Superman film.
vexfly - 8/8/2011, 12:38 AM
I'm not big into posting new articles etc... but here's one I just found about the filming location. http://montgomery.patch.com/articles/summer-of-superman-a-stroll-down-the-downtown-set#photo-7256456

only thing relevant it kinda reveals is a big tornado of some kind to happen in "smallville"
vexfly - 8/8/2011, 12:39 AM
oh yeah, it also mentions the helicopter like the above article does too
LP4 - 8/8/2011, 12:43 AM
@BaneKill- Rather impressive deduction there. We could be in store for an interesting plot...Zod possibly knowing Superman's secret identity and childhood in Smallville.

Perhaps Zod wants to destroy Superman's childhood memories therefore he'd have nothing left to protect and love. Thus Zod perhaps thinks he could enslave Superman that way?

Interesting.
LP4 - 8/8/2011, 12:56 AM
But I'd also be perfectly happy with this scene revolving around the military attacking Superman. We've already seen the military take on Zod in 'SupermanII' i really don't want another Donner-retread like last time.

Plus the idea of Superman fu*king up some tanks is cool. Obviously he wouldn't hurt the soldiers but imagine Superman bending cannons and smashing tanks...i know very Hulk but meh...at least it's something new for Superman.
LP4 - 8/8/2011, 2:03 AM
So does anyone know if casting is done yet? Seems to be taking forever to finish up. We've already got 11 roles in the film casted- Clark/Superman, Lois, Jonathon, Martha, Jor-El, Lara, Zod, Faora, Gen. Swanwick, Col Hardy and now Perry White.

I'm pretty positive by this point- no Jimmy or Lex.

I hope casting is finished so we can finally get a new Superman already.
