13-Minute ‘Man of Steel’ Featurette Goes Deep Behind the Scenes
Everything we see from 'Man of Steel' only increases our anticipation for the epic return of Superman, but the latest featurette takes the cake. After this 13-minute look behind the scenes, our excitement for Zack Snyder's take on the greatest superhero of all time can barely be contained. Congratulations, Warner Bros. marketing team. We hope you all got nice fat raises.
Although certain chunks of the featurette have been released on their own, the bulk of the video is completely new material, giving us a look at the making of 'Man of Steel' as well as tons of new footage. We get to see more of Russell Crowe's Jor-El and Michael Shannon's Zod than we ever have before, and we get a quick tease of a scene between Amy Adams' Lois Lane and Diane Lane's Martha Kent. The video also offers the first extended look at Laurence Fishburne's Perry White.
In addition to the new footage, we also get to see the cast and crew chat about the film, mostly talking about the scale of the production and the philosophical ramifications of a character like Superman. The most interesting segment in the video involves the creation of Superman's costume, which presented more problems than you'd imagine. Also, Snyder has a pretty sound logical reason for ditching the "underwear" from the outside of Superman's costume.
'Man of Steel' opens on June 14. Let's go get in line right now.
