MAN OF STEEL Prop Reveals Mysterious Contamination In Metropolis Area

MAN OF STEEL Prop Reveals Mysterious Contamination In Metropolis Area

Movie props for the new Superman movie indicate that citizens in the Metropolis area are showing symptoms of poisoning from a mysterious contaminant. Also, set decorations for the Kent farm, and Lois Lane's apartment.

On March 31st an auction was held for Man of Steel set decorations, props, and wardrobe. One of the more intriguing pieces is a board containing notes and articles written by Lois Lane.

First up Lois Lane's noticeboard which has a couple of Daily Planet stories on it attributed to her that are about a poisoning of the Metropolis area by an unknown contamination. There were notes and a plane ticket etc on the board too. Very cool.

When I think Superman and contamination the first thing that pops into my head is the sub-plot from the television show Smallville.
In Smallville, high levels of green Kryptonite radiation can cause normal Humans to mutate and acquire superhuman abilities (these mutants are usually called "meteor freaks"), although an outside catalyst (such as a strong electrical charge or a meteor shower) is usually required. - Wikipedia

We know director Zack Snyder will have a few characters that were in the Smallville series making an appearance in his new movie, but would he borrow the kryptonite contamination plot? Probably not, I wouldn't expect any Metahumans, but I also wouldn't be surprised if a meteor shower of kryptonite was the cause of the poisoning. Just this time there won't be any cool super powers to go with the toxic exposure.

Man Of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne with Christopher Meloni and Harry Lennix, the reboot is slated for theaters June 14th, 2013!

The biggest twist is that this is a huge misdirect for WB and they're actually making a Captain Planet movie.

i don't think it's possible for me to be more in love with amy adams.

Zach Snyder didnt come up with the idea for the movie. Also, it was a brilliant move on Smallville to use meteor rocks to give bad guys their powers. If not, then you have lab accidents, explosions, experiments and etc., and 15 minutes of origins for most episodes.

So no trailer but we auctioning movie props??
thewonderer - 4/10/2012, 6:03 PM
Whats with the Zod hate?

You'd all rather get Lex for the millionth time?

This is a new origin story and Doomsday can come in in the last part. It makes perfect sense.
superotherside - 4/10/2012, 6:08 PM
Interesting... I wonder what happened.

@Aussyface In a movie where Superman has briefless protruding crotch area, and a scumbag from (the horrible Michael Bays Bad boys 2) Playing Zod You worry about a black Perry White... Racist
Mrcool210 - 4/10/2012, 8:09 PM

thewolfx - 4/10/2012, 8:55 PM
amy mcadams .. worst lookin lois lane ever
mgeoff88 - 4/10/2012, 10:00 PM
So kryptonite in MOS will have similar properties to kryptonite on Smallville? That's interesting.

I wonder if they are trying to set up a villain for the sequel?
Phlegmbot - 4/10/2012, 10:33 PM
I want to like this movie...I really, really do (esp. since I called Zack Snyder as director of a reboot when RETURNS flopped)...but I've not heard even one piece of news about the story that's excited me...or interested me even.

I do like the casting for Adams. Who seems completely wrong for Lois.

MrPagBrewster - 4/11/2012, 3:28 PM
lol @smallville reference.
MrPagBrewster - 4/11/2012, 3:37 PM
WB needs to stop screwing around. This better not be smallville the movie. I don't want an hour of the dedicated to the origin and/or a self-conscious clark kent. Come on warner brothers.
thedude2936 - 4/16/2012, 1:09 PM
with this tidbit of info I could see Kenny Braverman/Conduit (who is sorely underrated as a villain IMO) from the 90's comics being a possible villain or antagonist of some sort since he was affected by kryptonite poisoning when he was born because the rocket and shards of kryptonite passed over the car he was born in because his parents couldnt make it to the hospital.
thedude2936 - 4/16/2012, 1:11 PM
@thewolfx actually I believe the worst looking Lois Lane was Margot Kidder, every Lois Lane since then have been way easier on the eyes
