    Ty-Zor is Superman's half-brother. It wouldn't make sense either for Michael Shannon to be playing him, or for Ty-Zor to be a Kryptonian conqueror with no relations to the House of El.

    IF Shannon is not Zod (which I doubt), he's either Jax-Ur or Kata-Zor.

    He's Zod. There's no Ty-zor or any of that crap from the Abrams script in this movie. Or so I hope.

    it's not a bad thing to me.they change it up tho and made it more realistic to fit with the movie.

    Not much realism about it. The suit looks like something from LOTR mixed with Krull.

    Must say its quite smart on WB's part and makes them look a little less foolish with the failed attempts and I'll bet they've saved a decent amount of money using old concepts etc.

    Does anyone know how much influence nolan has had or is having on the production? Snyder is ok but i trust in nolan more. His name is being used heavily in the promotion so i hope it's more that just lip-service i mean spielberg\s name keeps coming up with the crappy transformers films.

    he has had no influence during filming because he was doing batman

    probably free now to help in the post production process

    his influence was in the script and getting project off the ground

    And that's enough for me, I wonder if Goyer and Nolan would returm to write a sequel or not.

    I hope so; I mean...their involvement with the story process is what mainly drew me to this film, let alone securing most of my confidence going into it.

    While I agree that Snyder will give it his all in his directorial duties, and draw out great performances from his cast..when it comes to Story..that's something I would rather have Nolan and Goyer working on.


    In any case, for the sake of modernizing Superman..I hope the one thing that they didn't aim for was making Superman a hero in this film as a result of feeling guilty for not being able to save someone.

    They may well have Clark going off to Alaska after the death of Jonathan,where he grieves his death,maybe with some feelings of guilt,and tries to work out who he is,and what he's going to do etc?

    If done right..I think that could work. I definitely give the people in charge of the writing credit..so I'm hopeful that they won't make Superman into a spider-man redux.

    You'd kind of assume he was there because he wants to be as far away from people as possible, right? So I wonder if something happened that made him think he was a danger to other people? Or maybe every time he's used his powers before, people have been terrified of him, so he's gone somewhere where he's unlikely to need to use them or be seen using them (and then the oil rig thing happens and he realises he can go to the end of the earth but he can't out run his own nature or something like that).

    i think oil rig scene is what makes him realize his potential maybe for once people are not reacting with fear in that scene and he is'nt so scared anymore

    Yeh,I think you're pretty much right,but I still have the feeling that he loses his Father as well,he seems to be quite down from the footage,maybe more than just from his own troubles,I might be reading too much into it though!

    Judging from the style and mood from the footage so far, I'd say Nolan (and Goyer) has had a pretty big influence after all. Also appearing to be gone is most of Snyder's trademark stylized visuals. There's a "cleaner" look to MOS than his other movies. Surely WB's wishes and doings.

    Aha,I had been keeping away from possible storylines,but that does suggest at part of the reason for Clark going walkabout.

    Some people here are dismissive about giving Nolan any credit and they think that Snyder is the man who is behind most of the decisions for this movie.

    I think that while Nolan's involvement is limited he sort of laid the road map for Snyder, after that the rest of process is all in Snyder's hands. I hope that I am making some sense here.
