3 Additional MAN OF STEEL items we may have overlooked.

3 Additional MAN OF STEEL items we may have overlooked.

3 Small "Smallville" misses we may have overlooked in Man Of Steel. (Pun Intended)

By HansonJJ - 12/30/2013
We all know about all the big Easter Eggs like Luthor Corp. logos all over, and the Wayne Ent. logo on the satellite, down to the smaller details like the Air Force Major Ferris, and even "Sullivans" the Body Shop young Clark is picked on in front of. A little throw back to Chloe Sullivan from the show "Smallville".

But recently I watched all 10 seasons of Smallville and just completed them the other night, so I decided to come back and watch Man of Steel again, and saw a few things I didn't notice before. Maybe we all have seen these before, but I have never seen them listed on any site in anyway yet, so I apologize if this is nothing new to you.

So here goes:

- Guy who played Dr. Emil Hamilton on the Smallville show was the TSgt. In the AF studying the ship in the arctic with the new Dr. Hamilton.

- Guy who played Bad Lex Clone on Smallville show is the alien on ship who takes Supermans blood while strapped down.

- Superman fight scene with Faora and other alien in Smallville street, you can see a sign for “Buds” in the background, which is a place Jonathon Kent used to "hang out" at as mentioned in other Superman material, including the show Smallville.

Not the biggest things in the world, but just thought I would throw them out there as some additional throwbacks to the show.

That's cool..
Blanka1212 - 12/30/2013, 10:50 AM
Where was the pun?

Why are you telling us things a lot of us already knew?

Why is this news?

Why are you writing articles?
billnye69 - 12/30/2013, 10:54 AM
Is it just me of was Green Lanterns symbol in the sand when Superman and Lois surrender to Zod?
HansonJJ - 12/30/2013, 11:01 AM
@Blanka1212 As I stated I have never seen these tidbits posted out of the 2 millions hidden items posted on Man of Steel, I apologized if you knew about them, but as we can see some others didn't. If I even showed something new to 1 person, my job was done. If you don't like it you didn't have to comment... pretty easy concept.

@Billnye69 I Thought there some kind of symbols in the back also, couldn't figure out what they were though.
Nice idea, could be.

Amy Adams played a role on Smallvile before, that was overlooked
JoeMomma29 - 12/30/2013, 11:08 AM
@ Blanka

Dang you sound like a Debbie Downer!!!!

HansonJJ - 12/30/2013, 11:26 AM
@Batception I forgot about that one also, nice catch.
I am sure there are a ton more, these were the ones that just caught my eye as I was watching that just stood out to me. Thanks
MagnusRex22 - 12/30/2013, 11:40 AM
While on the subject, I see you pointed out the Chloe Sullivan reference. Don't we see Chloe in the movie, or at least hear her referred to. I don't know if they say her name, but I do remember hearing the "Sullivan girl" after Clark saves the bus.
typicalfanboy - 12/30/2013, 11:45 AM
the character of superman appeared in the last episode of smallville. i bet you guys overlooked that too. seriously though, i agree with blanka. what is this bs?
HansonJJ - 12/30/2013, 11:56 AM
@MagnusRex22 I know Lana Lang was dominant in that scene along with Pete Ross, I just watched it over again after you said that and I didn't hear the Sullivan name come up, but it may have somewhere else possibly. But Pete's mom did say another name referring to a buy character but I couldn't make out what the name was completely.

@Crashrendar Again, these are just tidbits that were neat to see of things from the Smallville world brought to the Man of Steel movie, I guess I don't understand your hate? Isn't this site for Comic fans? Don't like it... move along, not hard...
mumbz - 12/30/2013, 11:59 AM
I thought it was quite cool how they got other actors involved in the superman lore to be a part of this movie
l0rdleg0las - 12/30/2013, 12:49 PM
Nice work on catching those. I didn't even consider the Sullivan's building as having anything to do with Superman
GeneralZod1138 - 12/30/2013, 12:51 PM
When Clark is pulled out of the pickup truck by the bully from school, his father is shopping for parts at "Sullivan's"

Boom
Happy11 - 12/30/2013, 12:55 PM
Blanka leave the guy alone.
JoeMomma29 - 12/30/2013, 12:55 PM
I loved Amy Adams in Smallville!!!!!!!

JasonBlue - 12/30/2013, 12:59 PM
Amy Adams could have easily been a brunette Lois Lane... I don't understand why on earth they kept her red head.... she looks way better as a brunette:

Brainiac13 - 12/30/2013, 2:02 PM
Knew the 1st two....nice find.
DukeAcureds - 12/30/2013, 2:10 PM
She's a redhead, because Lois has traditionally been a redhead, in the comics of recent decades, though she did start out with black hair.
That kid that was referred to was Whitney Fordman, also from the Smallvile show.
A bigger reference to the Smallville show would be that some of the Kryptonians were played by actors that also played Kryptonian prisoners of the Phantom Zone, in Smallville.
I missed the Buds easter egg.
This is news and it is bonafide and if Blanka1212 is going to shit all over this article after reading HansonJJ's disclaimers, then he/she should be ashamed of themselves and go and sit in a corner for a half a minute, thinking about what he/she has done.
Sophisticated - 12/30/2013, 2:12 PM
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
'Cause you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
staypuffed - 12/30/2013, 2:44 PM
I swear JasonBlue brings up that thing about brunette Amy on every Man of Steel article...
marvel72 - 12/30/2013, 3:56 PM
smallville was f*ckin shit.
Jollem - 12/30/2013, 4:09 PM
smallville > agents of blah
typicalfanboy - 12/30/2013, 4:13 PM
@HansonJJ - nothing you wrote is new. if you took the time to read what others before you had posted by simply typing "man of steel easter eggs" in a google,you would know that. post whatever you want, but don't act like you've come up with any of it first.
cld247 - 12/30/2013, 4:28 PM
@HansonJJ Great find! [frick] the haters! They always have to bitch and complain, about anything man of steel related! It's so LMFAO hilarious!
Blanka1212 - 12/30/2013, 4:34 PM

What exactly have I done? Did I f**k his mother and not call her again? "What I've done". Jesus. Drama queen much?
Blanka1212 - 12/30/2013, 4:37 PM
And I missed this gem:

"They always have to bitch and complain about anything Man of Steel related".

No one here was bitching about the movie. As a matter of fact, it is probably one of my favorite superhero movies to date.

What the logical majority of us hate is people who come to this site trying to up their article count for some stupid reason with inane shit about things people already know. Look at PeterParker's articles, for example. And entire article of superhero villains. That's it. And then we're going to put it in the news.
typicalfanboy - 12/30/2013, 4:51 PM
@Blanka1212 - did you take his mother to a nice seafood dinner first?
typicalfanboy - 12/30/2013, 4:58 PM
@cld247 - i don't think you get it, son. it's not hating on man of steel it's hating on HansonJJ. he's posting something that was already made aware to everyone back in july or august and he's acting like that the internet is too stupid for anyone other than him to notice this stuff.
Blanka1212 - 12/30/2013, 5:13 PM
Nope. Went in raw, and never looked back.
russburlingame - 12/30/2013, 5:35 PM
KryptonSite had all of these and a bunch more in a list the week of the film's release.
HansonJJ - 12/31/2013, 2:21 AM
First off, I never posted "Oh My God, look what I found, I'm so great, because I found this", I just said, Hey heres a few extra things we may not have noticed before, so chill out.

Second, out of all the posters on the article, only a couple said they knew about them, so to others it was news, and thats all that matters.

I've been sitting in the desert for months now and have to read more about movies and shows then I actually get to watch them, so sorry I don't have as much time on my hands to know everything you know from the internet, hating me for it is the only logical answer I guess...
All I know if when I get home, I'm going to have a lot of things to catch up on...
HansonJJ - 12/31/2013, 2:22 AM
Thanks to everyone else though, glad you liked the update.
DukeAcureds - 12/31/2013, 10:21 AM
HansonJJ: "Maybe we all have seen these before, but I have never seen them listed on any site in anyway yet, so I apologize if this is nothing new to you."

Blanka1212: "Why are you telling us things a lot of us already knew?

Moron much, Blanka?
Blanka1212 - 1/1/2014, 1:06 AM
Yeah, it still applies, dipshit.
JediPhilosopher - 1/1/2014, 11:19 AM
I hate Smallville. It twisted everything to do with Superman and held out until the last episode to have him suit up, as if that was supposed to make up for it all.
JediPhilosopher - 1/1/2014, 11:23 AM
@JasonBlue You are right. Not to say I would like her as Lois no matter what she does, but I'd dislike her a bit less if she had the proper hair color. WHy must they change the established things? GRRRRR.
DCeddie - 1/1/2014, 5:32 PM
I don't keep up with EVERY MoS article, so it's very easy for me to miss discussion on this, and I really don't feel like digging thru 10,000 posts to find these kinds of tidbits anyway...

So, to the author, thanks for pointing these out :D
MightyZeus - 1/2/2014, 3:57 AM
I did not know most of these. Thanks for letting most of us know about these. Nice find.
GenerationX - 1/17/2014, 5:07 AM
Wow, it took you until this late in the game to notice all those things??? Nice...little slow
