The ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ (2013) Facebook page has been providing eager Superman fans with all sorts of photo goodness from the set of Zack Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel’. Some of the best images have included a good look at Henry Cavill in his full Superman costume and some massive destruction in Smallville. Today, we get a pretty good look at at the Metropolis set, including a few Smallville vehicles. I think that the set designers have captured the feel of the City of Tomorrow, with its gleaming skyscrapers and its cleaner look, as opposed to the dark grimy counterpart of Gotham as we’ve seen in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.
Shawn Z, who was on set for the filming of ‘Man of Steel’, gave this description of one scene on the Metropolis set: “Amy Adams (Lois Lane) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) were on set. Extras were running, papers and cases were blowing all over, then people stop and look up.” What this actually means is anyone’s guess. I assume the high winds and people looking to the sky heralds the arrival of either the Man of Steel himself… or possibly one of his villains?
Here’s one last picture that was just leaked by io9.com of The Daily Planet statue.
‘Man of Steel’ stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Lawrence Fishburne, Michael Shannon, Christopher Meloni and Antje Traue.
