MAN OF STEEL Stars Henry Cavill & Russell Crowe Had Scuba Training

Well this is a tad bit unexpected. Why is it that Superman and his daddy needed scuba lessons for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel?

Thanks to Superman: Man of Steel (2013) for making us aware of Below H2O Scuba Diving's new photos with Russell Crowe and Henry Cavill. The scuba company labeled this as training for the Superman movie, but didn't add any information outside of that so we're left guessing. So, what type of scene would need Jor-El and Kal-El to be underwater? I would guess this will be some type of interaction in Superman's home, the Fortress of Solitude. Maybe the water will give the scene a slow-motion alien like effect on the screen?





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!

Because swimming is a nice exercise for flying? I remember seeing video of Routh learning to fly in a watertank on the Superman Returns dvd.

Because it's always good to practice "pretend inhaling" in Space... cough * cough * Green Screen * cough * cough

Hmmm why would Jor-El be flying/swimming?

I wonder if Michael Shannon went through the same training and it wasn't reported. If so, perhaps there is a special aerial movement they'd like to capture. I dunno

LOL, the dude that Crowe has his arm around is staring in two different directions.
redsoxdude - 2/23/2012, 10:56 PM

Aquaman? Ha I kid, probably training for flying scenes like Routh did.
rbfn04 - 2/23/2012, 11:23 PM
and why would Jor-El be flying?

But, yeah, suit looks more like aquaman than superman anyways...
monstalova - 2/23/2012, 11:59 PM
@redsoxdude that was f'n hilarious! Haha
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 2/24/2012, 12:49 AM
There's no reason for Jor-El to be flying or looking for Aquaman so those two theories are moot.

Think the best theory yet is for a dream effect while Supes talks to daddy in the fortress of solitude. Make it look like they're talking outside our reality.

SuspenseSmith - that crossed my mind too. Maybe it's just a little down-time for them.

People still wear Affliction shirts? What is this, 2007?
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 2/24/2012, 1:11 AM
Man Crowe is a pretty big dude. Either that or old googly eyes is a very small person.
thewonderer - 2/24/2012, 2:16 AM
My god are you people cruel. The guy next to Crowe has a problem and you all make fun of him? Cbm fans my ass, why don't you all throw rocks at crippled kids while at it

@thewonderer

Hey, isn't that the lead singer of the band "Men at Work" posing with Cavill and Crowe?
nighteagle - 2/24/2012, 6:23 AM
they probably took it for the same reason Routh took it for months straight.. because it helps them get the movements down for flying!!! it teaches them how to glide and all of that when they are on wires...well.. at least thats why Singer made Routh do it!
Deschain - 2/24/2012, 6:26 AM
if it was a special effect shot why not in a pool? The water would be murky as where they seem to be, its obviously something to do with a visible body of water
Vapes - 2/24/2012, 8:11 AM
Well, there's pics of Cavill torn up on an oil rig.
Sounds like they'll bring the fight down to the water. Which could be awesome.
Supermanofsteel - 2/24/2012, 8:21 AM
I think they're going to compair flying with swimming...
PsyGuy - 2/24/2012, 9:04 AM

you guys are bad!! lmfao
Ranger14 - 2/24/2012, 12:07 PM
As mentioned, we already saw images of Cavill on an oil rig and why wouldn't Clark Kent/Superman be in water at some point?

Russell Crowe looks bigger (more muscular) than Cavill in those images. Good thing Cavill has his suit.
DioFoRio - 2/24/2012, 12:51 PM
@Newtsy!!!! Dude I thought the same shit!!!! I was like, shit now he's teaching scuba?!?! Men at work [frick]ing rocks
rbfn04 - 2/24/2012, 12:55 PM

hoodedjester - 2/24/2012, 1:20 PM

@Froggy

Fricking love that Aquaman pic...

Maybe just to get the feeling of weightlessness. Routh trained in a pool to practice his motions in flight.
