Man Of Steel Set Photo Reveals More Truck Carnage
What is it with these blockbuster superhero movies and their utter lack of security when it comes to set photos and videos? We practically have seen all of The Dark Knight Rises thanks to porous Pittsburgh and Los Angeles sets, and now Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel continues to bleed set photos like a leaky dam. First, there were green-screen images of Henry Cavill rescuing the Coast Guard (or some such heroic event). We’ve seen Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon in costume. And now we’re seeing more destruction from the set. Feast your eyes on this (courtesy of Superman Homepage):
Someone hates that truck. Was it Supes? Is it General Zod? Are we sure this isn’t from a scene in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon that didn't make the final cut?
Snyder promised action in his Superman reboot, and that first promo image of Cavill in his suit suggested a grittier tone. Plus, leaked set pics have suggested other automobiles damaged on the film’s various locations. I’m starting to think that Clark Kent has a serious grudge against cars and trucks in this upcoming installment.
Now, we wait. And wait some more. Man of Steel isn’t due in theaters until June 14, 2013, which means we might not see an official trailer until this summer. We might see something at Comic-Con at best, but that might not have any real footage… just a tease. These photos don’t help, as we really won’t know what to expect from Snyder’s picture until we see legitimate footage. Do you think these pictures set the stage? Or do they merely remind you of what you can’t see just yet?
