Man Of Steel is getting closer and closer to teaser trailer territory - we're predicting something will hit July at the latest - and if the below descriptions are to be believed, we're set to see some spectacular stuff in it.

But before we get leave Kansas for the Fortress of Spoilertude, we need to issue a couple of words of warning.

The initial source of the footage descriptions was an IMDb board, which are notorious for being full of the sort of truth-bending that would make Lex Luthor blush.

That said, the poster really does seem to know their stuff, and has since qualified the description with information that makes us think it's valid enough to report.

But, obviously, if you're spoiler-phobic please stop reading... now.

Seriously, if you carry on reading there's a very real chance you'll have your first experience of watching Man Of Steel spoiled, as you'll know to expect stuff like slo-mo in a Zack Snyder film, and cool stuff in a movie Chris Nolan's involved with.

Still here? Then read on. We're pretty sure you'll be as excited as we are by the following...

"Last night at a VFX conference there was a sizzle reel shown by Weta. In this sizzle reel there were two beta level (most likely from a trailer) clips shown. One only about 6 seconds long, the other much longer.

The former was Clark Kent grabbing a truck with a crying man inside of it while flying through the middle of a tornado. It looked incredible. Henry Cavill can fly, and he can hold a truck in one arm. Zack Snyder brings his usual visual flair, but somehow is still unlike anything he has made before. It felt like a Superman comic. Real heroism.

The longer clip was even more stunning, but the more I think about it, slightly concerning. The clip consisted of Superman in full costume in a verbal argument with Zod in the center of Smallville with Christopher Meloni yells at them through a megaphone next to a tank.

Meloni warns them he will fire if they do not surrender. While he says this Zod sizes Superman up. Shannon looks evil as he can be. Bone chilling even. And is DEFINITELY sporting enhanced muscle.

Cavill’s Superman is a wonderful sight to behold in motion. Cavill’s pure size makes him the most believable Superman to date. Zod speaks in Kryptonian “Do you know your native tongue, Kal-el?” Superman looks stunned, and responds in English, “Who are you?” (there isn’t enough Superman dialogue to judge Cavill’s performance fairly, but I’d say he did well. Nothing spectacular from this clip.) Meloni curses, then into a walkie talkie orders the tank to fire.

Superman hears this and turns to the tank. Zod takes this opportunity to sucker punch Superman (in Zack Snyder slow-then-fast-mo) then when the tank fires Superman rushes in front of Zod, despite the punch and catches the exploding missile near his stomach.

The flames ripple around him, hit his face, his cape, his eyes. The shrapnel hits him and bounces off. The same happens to Zod to a lesser extent. Meloni’s shocked expression when they remain standing, silhouettes in a cloud of smoke, ends the clip.

It was incredible, it really was. And absolutely visually stunning, but my qualm is its typical Zack Snyder. It doesn’t look glossy like his films do. It instead has a more clean cut, colorful look. Like Thor, or Iron Man.

But it is the same slow-mo styling that people expect from him. Maybe it just happens in this one scene, but it happens twice. Makes me a bit hesitant, despite the fact it looks phenomenal."


Man Of Steel is released on 14 June 2013. We're looking forward to it like Krypto the Superdog looks forward to a nice walk.

    I'm really interested to see what this movie will end up being. When they initially discussed rebooting Superman the first person I thought of was Zach Snyder, specifically because of his creative/stylish ways of shooting action scenes. Sucker Punch got me a little worried though, he pretty much had free reign on that film and alot of mistakes were made, from bad acting to goofy storyline and way too much unnecessary slow mo. Luckily he has some good actors on this film and i'm hoping for the best.

    Quick FYI- Although he's executive producer Nolan only helped with certain aspects of the script and choosing the director. From what i've read he won't have any more involvement with this film.

    There better be a no-hold barred fight between Supes and General Zod. With all the CGI effects that make The Avengers look like 🤬 .

    i don't get why people keep making this argument complaining about Snyder's slow motion. That's his thing, and 🤬 is badass to me, every slo mo shot in Sucker Punch was what made it dope IMO - same thing in Watchmen and 300.. i see no problem with the slow mo 🤬 and i think put to use in a movie like Man of Steel might be unprecedented dopeness.

    I like the slow mo too especially with the fighting scenes, it's one of the reasons why I became a fan. But with Sucker Punch, and only Sucker Punch, it just went a bit overboard. There were alot of superfluous slow mo shots for 🤬 that didn't need it i.e. the entire intro scene or whenever they showed the girls walking together...it was overkill and ruined the effect. Watchmen and 300 had a good balance of that.

    All of Zack Snyders films have had some GOAT fighting scenes including sucker punch so I expect no less. His only flaw was sucker punch cause of the wack storyline but you got Nolan doing the story with Snyder's action so this 🤬 will be epic.
