Default The Story.

Cosmic Book News revealed a series of Plot points about The Man of Steel, revealed to them by their insiders at Warner. It is unconfirmed if this is true, but it sounds good.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
  • Brainiac attacks Krypton after Jax-Ur destroys one of its moons during an experiment, and abducts the city of Kandor, which eventually leads to Krypton's destruction.
  • General Zod and Faora attempt to stop Brainiac, but fail and, for this, they are banished to the Phantom Zone alongside Jax-Ur.
  • Years later, they escape via a Phantom Zone Projector in Superman's spaceship and learn more about Earth.
  • Zod believes that the humans are destroying a perfect planet and decides to conquer Earth and turn it into a New Krypton, with him and Faora as the parents of a new Kryptonian bloodline.
  • Meanwhile, Jax-Ur is sent by Zod to advance Earth's technology alongside Lex Luthor, CEO of LexCorp.
  • General Sam Lane, Lois Lane's father, commands Earth's military forces against Zod's invasion. He hates aliens as much as Zod hates humans and believes Superman to be the same as them, so, he attacks Superman as well.
  • Brainiac is being introduced to be used as the main villain of a potential sequel. Revisions in the Script, however, appear to atribuet Krypton's destruction to Jax-Ur, leaving Brainiac's role in in unknow.
  • Ed Harris and Jeff Bridges are being looked at to play General Sam Lane.
  • Jon Hamm is being looked at to play Jor-El.
  • Adam Harris' audition impressed Zack Snyder and he'll be doing complementary tests with Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, in addition to be working out in order to make for a more physically intimidating Lex Luthor.
  • There is apparently two versions of the Script being worked on. Both are very action-packed, especially during the finale.

Has it been mentioned what other stories, besides "Birthright", are of influence to the film? Byrne's "Man of Steel"?

Goyer was pretty keen on the first chapter of Secret Origin, which he wrote the foreword to. I can only imagine he somehow rewrote and included it.

I imagine there'l be influences from Birthright, Secret Origin, Earth One and of course Byrne's Man of Steel.

Cosmic news is so desparate to be credible that they post every possible "breaking news" story no matter how bogus or how illegitimate it sounds.

They also lurk here on the Hype forums for their news.

That should tell youo something.

I kind of hope that we get to see Clark learning how to fly for the first time on film here. I'm not talking about him having his first experienced where he levitated or defied gravity like in SR, I mean about him actually learning how to fly and his reaction to that ability upon unlocking it for the first time. I think it'd be a great thing to see.

I think I may have cracked why Jimmy isn't in this movie. Because Jimmy has ginger hair and so does Lois!

Nah. There's a story from the 50's, that shows Jimmy become a photographer at the Daily Planet because he wants to meet Superman and thinks Lois is his ticket to doing so.

It's either that or the ginger hair

That story does show how much guts Jimmy has to follow his dreams. He's quite an interesting character and if he does appear, I hope he isn't just brushed to the sidelines.

Tapping into most people's dream of flying using modern film making technology in a brand-new, live-action Superman film? Yes, please!

On the subject of Jimmy Olsen, I like that '50s comic story Rodrigo mentioned. That would be a cool way to introduce the character, instead of him being an assumed, pre-existing fixture at the Planet, as he often is. One thing that I liked about the Secret Origins story was that Superman and Jimmy both felt overwhelmed by life in the huge city (for different reasons, of course), bonded over that, and helped one another out because of it. This also helped the struggling Daily Planet re-establish itself, which was another nice aspect of Secret Origins that I wouldn't hate to see in the film.
