SDCC 2012: Description And Reactions To MAN OF STEEL Footage; Low-Res Poster Spotted

Man of Steel footage was shown just a few moments ago, and as well as revealing some very intriguing new details about the film (Superman in handcuffs?!) we also have reactions from those who were lucky enough to be in attendance AND a low-res teaser poster featuring the hero. have provided a description of the Man of Steel footage shown at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and what follows are the highlights from what was revealed during the screening. According to the site (and many other people who were in attendance as you can see from the reactions below), the Man of Steel footage looks totally different to past Superman movies. It was seemingly a combination of the teaser trailer (which has now been CONFIRMED as being attached to The Dark Knight Rises) and Comic-Con exclusive content. Flashes of Smallville were shown, including the Kent farm house and a shot of a young Clark Kent running in a red cape. A grown up and bearded Clark then walks on a snowy road with a voice-over from Russell Crow's Jor-El (talking about children being, "inspired to greater things") and Kevin Costner's Jonathan Kent giving Clark advice on becoming the man he wants to be. Clark is then shown in the Kent barn looking at the spaceship he crashed to Earth in, and holding a small piece of metal with the iconic "S" logo on it.

The footage then flashes to different periods in his life, offering a look at Clark as a teenager saving a bus full of children who have crashed in the water as he pulls the door off. "People are afraid of what they don't understand," says Costner as the scene transitions to Clark talking to what appears to be a holographic projection of Jor-El (although it apparently seemed as if they were standing right in front of one another). Superman is then finally shown in full costume. First from a distance, and then walking across a snowy landscape. The iconic superhero is seen flying and catching someone who falls from a building (presumably in Metropolis) with only a single flash of Lois Lane, before Superman is spotted in costume - and seemingly in handcuffs - being led down a hallway by armed guards. We next see Clark in an elevator lifting glasses to his face, before the footage concluded with a shot of him shirtless and on fire, and then being thrown into the bank vault revealed in the first official image released last year. When the footage was played a second time, it was also noted that it contains a very brief glimpse of Zod, Superman pulling himself out a pile of skulls, the military turning their weapons on Superman and a woman claiming to have seen Clark saving her child when he was a teenager.


Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman
Amy Adams as Lois Lane

"Doesn't really feel like a Zack Snyder movie at all."

thats a good thing i like Zack Snyder but he does need to change his style of film making. if the movie feels like Batman Begins thats great news. we dont want another Sucker Punch lol.
95 - 7/14/2012, 3:57 PM
Superman Begins.
Talontd - 7/14/2012, 3:57 PM

I fcuking LOVED Sucker Punch, sure it had pacing issues, but I really enjoyed it...
TimL - 7/14/2012, 3:58 PM
Only a matter of time until we have it leaked somewhere. I bet atleast 1 guy had a sneaky cam running and is now running out of the building, sweating like a pig.

Sounds awesome!
GreenHalJordan - 7/14/2012, 4:07 PM
I think we are forgetting that Zach can make CBM's, just not very original storie (like sucker punch which was COMPLETELY his idea and he directed, wrote, and produced) When givin material, this guy makes gold.
lunesta - 7/14/2012, 4:12 PM
TimL so there is a fat guy runing around the building sweating like apig
Tony93 - 7/14/2012, 4:13 PM

JDUKE25 - 7/14/2012, 4:16 PM

Why isn't this post on the front page?!?!

Anyway!! This teaser sounds amazing.... and its such a tease leaving everyone wanting more!


@Spidey23: I believe it was Superman's thing first to let the police take him into custody to show them that he comes in peace (no pun intended); so with that in mind TASM was actually taking that from Superman's book.

I also want to know how Cavill looked while in action in the suit!

I love the teaser pic btw. It was great. If I was a guy, I would have metaphoric blue balls right now. lol
brickwall - 7/14/2012, 4:23 PM

@Froggy thats a pretty cool poster

xfan320 - 7/14/2012, 4:27 PM
Superman turns himself in to convince the US government he's on their side...

calling it now. He's gonna be viewed as enemy #1 when he first appears trying to save people.

where's all the dang bootleg SDCC footage at??
MartianSupermanhunter22 - 7/14/2012, 4:27 PM
[frick] me so [frick]ing stoked!!!!
[frick] [frick] [frick] [frick] [frick] [frick]............
JULEZ13 - 7/14/2012, 4:27 PM
I actually want to see some slo-mo. Superman just moves so fast that slo-mo will kinda be ideal, especially during epic battles. Just not so much that its overbearing. I would like Snyder to incorporate showing his full on speed and slo-mo at different parts of the film.
TheActionAce - 7/14/2012, 4:27 PM
SageMode - 7/14/2012, 4:27 PM
I really really hope this is not a watered down version of Superman from the comics.
OnePunchBaldy - 7/14/2012, 4:28 PM
All I'm asking for, is one punch. Just one.
JDUKE25 - 7/14/2012, 4:28 PM
The footage?

"Gritty isn't the right world. It looks real, but not "dark""

Silas Lesnick:
"There's a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire"
OnePunchBaldy - 7/14/2012, 4:30 PM
Superman deserves some Slo-Mo. At least a few shots would be nice too. But I can't wait any longer!
Tony93 - 7/14/2012, 4:30 PM
Silas Lesnick:
"Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he's been thrown."
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/14/2012, 4:31 PM

Zod better be cruel and menacing as hell.
DioFoRio - 7/14/2012, 4:31 PM
@Froggy that is THE worse Fan Fic poster photoshop job I Have Ever Seen!!! ; )
