So. Let's say the marketing does intensify, and the film is marketed everywhere mid April to release date. How much do you think this could make it's opening weekend. Some say 100 million, but i'm not so sure.

Well I've been gone for 3 days so have we already talked about how the Super Bowl was a huge missed opportunity for MOS to start it's advertising? Especially when over 108 million viewers on average in the US alone watched it, Twitter feeds for the game had 231,500 tweets per minute with a total of 22.1 million Tweets about the game & halftime show (does *not* include conversation about commercials).

If we've gone over this then apologies and move right along, I won't bother with the rest of the statistics. :P

Now looking at Man of Steel I'd never guess it was a Zack Snyder film if I didn't already know it was his. He's a very talented director and has an amazing eye for good shots. Despite coming across in a very "down to earth" manner in interviews, I sense he's quite an intelligent man. Not Nolan levels of intellect, but smarter than most people directing superhero flicks.



Snyder gets the most out of his budget that's for sure and he knows how to shoot action/fight scenes and definitely has a visionary eye when it comes to visuals.

Him teaming with Mokri, his cinematographer on MOS is a win IMO.

The film looks shot really well...I love the look of the film. It leaves a guy in awe

Considering how much WB keeps talking about the stakes involved with this one film. You would think a SB spot wouldn't hurt.

Especially given Snyder's previous works with 300 and Watchmen?
A little bit, yeah. That shot in the trailer of Clark surrounded by flames at the oil rig looks really stylized and dissimilar to the rest of the trailer.

I'm not worried about it at all, Clark swathed in flames was one of the coolest shots of the trailer, as long as the physics seems genuine (for example, if Zod tears off a chunk of a building and hurls it at Superman, I want to really get a sense of the weight of it), I'm happy.

I don't know if you'd really get a sense of the weight of a chunk of the building especially with it being thrown by a super powered being.

Just to be clear, I'm not talking about the shot of him where he's literally on fire. I'm referring to the one where he's clearly straining himself to do something.

the shot where he is lifting the X beam or whatever you wanna call it....I'm shocked that it seems like he is having a hard time lifting the girder up and holding it...but it's a helluva shot indeed

there is ZERO chance that MOS will be in post production from 2011 until 2013. it will not even be from januar 2012 to may 2013. i agree that MOS was not rushed. its hard to find a blockbuster movie in the last 5 years that was not rushed.

I think that proves this incarnation of S won't be as strong as a god lol. I think he will be a bit stronger than superman was in the animated Timm series

I agree...I don't think he will be as strong in the past movies. Which is kinda welcomed but then I'm just wondering about what his strength level will actually be. I know those things are huge but you would think that Superman would have no issue lifting one of those girders up

Maybe the girder is connected to a bigger part of the platform ? Idk maybe it's more than just a girder.

It could be because, I'm just guessing here, everything except Clark & the girder in that shot is VFX. We all saw the pictures of them filming the oil rig helipad scene in Vancouver. The set was pretty simple and sparse, with some green screen backing. The sky, smoke, cinder, and heat distortion elements are all digital.

I hope we don't get inconsistent power levels in this movie because I would have thought a young Clark lifting a school bus out of water would require more strength than holding just an oil rig support girder.
I think what we'll end up seeing is him holding more than just the support beam, it might be that he's holding up a huge section of the rig long enough for the helicopter to take off. The rest of it will be done by CGI and it'll just be for the closeup scenes that they filmed with the helicopter and extra's and Supes holding the beam.

Most likely how it'll go down ^. And then the explosion knocks him underwater and he goes unconscious. Just like shots of him underwater with metal shrapnel around him in the trailer

I'd imagine so...It HAS to be a larger section than what we have seen

I don't think we will have inconsistent power levels. As you said, it's probably a MUCH LARGER section than just the girder we saw in the set photos that were leaked...

That's how I imagined it would be....he's holding up that section long enough for the helicopter to take off and then there is an explosion and it knocks him into the ocean. I can't wait to see how it all plays out

When was all this revealed? I knew about WETA, but I didn't know Double Negative (Nolan's effects house of choice) was involved. And I don't think I've even heard of MPC?

I know. All I'm saying is, regardless of the reason, it looks inconsistent with the rest of what we saw. I'm not too worried about it. Like you said - pretty much everything in that shot was VFX. Also, being surrounded by fire to the extent that he is in that shot would probably look something like that in real life, now that I think about it.

Old, but interesting. Peter Rubin, the artist who designed the MOS emblem...

Q: What can we expect next from you?

Well, Man of Steel comes out in 2013. I've left some fingerprints on that. I spent nine months working with Alex on the details of Krypton. Like I said, he's a thinker... for him, it was all about the aesthetic and the culture of these aliens - characters that everybody thinks they already know, which made it all the more challenging. He was very particular, which drove me to work hard to try master the style he had in mind. It stretched me, and I think we did some new and interesting things, both from a visual point of view and also technologically, within the process. Zack is a strong director, too, and I'm very excited by what he's bringing to the story. What we did behind the scenes is going to have repercussions in the business, and on screen it's going to knock people's socks off, in my opinion.

I'm a huge Superman fan going back to childhood, and so was very, very glad to be a part of it. I got some amazing design opportunities. For one, I was asked to design the new "S" insignia, the one that Henry Cavill is wearing in all those leaked on-set photos. I've been drawing that in one version or another since I was four years old. I was hitting in the sweet spot, and it felt like one of the high points of my career as a designer. There were some interesting struggles associated with it - I'll tell that story someday.

The film has 3 or more visual effects companies working on it so inconsistencies are a possibility. One person does go around overseeing it but there may be a gap in talent as each company is commissioned to do different parts of the film.

Maybe the oil rig scene is the first time he's used his powers in years. It might be the equivilant of a normal human lifting weights after months off from the gym.

I'm pretty sure it's more akin to riding a bicycle. I highly doubt Superman would lose his strength or forget how to fly.
