-There is no second unit on Man of Steel. Zack Snyder shot every scene himself.
-Everything in Man of Steel was shot on hand held cameras.
-Collider was informed that Superman kicks a lot of ass but also gets his ass kicked.
- A pretty interesting revelation, the filmmakers have a three-level strength class. It's made up of a regular human, other Kryptonians and Superman. It's unclear whether they mean 'Kryptonians on Krypton' or 'Kryptonians on Earth'. If its the second option then that heavily implies that Superman is stronger than Zod and his cohorts, which would actually make sense as he's been on Earth far longer. They also touch on Superman's strength, saying that he has limits, 'he can't fly through space for an infinite amount of time.' I think you can expect to see Superman flying through space and maybe running out of breath and falling back down to the Earth (that would be a great visual) but that's just my speculation.
-Snyder confirmed there are NO slow-motion action shots in Man of Steel.
-David S. Goyer says a 'power or two' that's never been revealed before in any previous version of a Superman film will be shown in Man of Steel. Heat vision, super speed, flight, strength and super breath have all been done before. What does that leave?
Krypton has been civilized for 100,000 years and they have been traveling in space for over 25,000 years. In addition, the gravity on Krypton is 4 to 10 times that of Earth and humans canít breathe on the planet. This is all going to be used to explain why Superman can fly, how he gets his powers, and the science behind everything. Krypton is a true alien world and the production created a full Kryptonian language. When we see some of the buildings on Krypton and they have writing on the side, you will be able to translate it as they will have meaning.
Sound like Krypton is just like Planet Vegeta.
-Krypton's social system is akin to feudal Japan, complete with their own Gods and Guilds. In feudal Japan, there was a strict hierarchy and lower class individuals were essentially at the mercy of their upper class superiors. Superman will have to decide whether he will follow the moral code of Krypton or Earth.
-Superman's costume is not just a fashion statement or an undergarment for Kryptonian astronaut armor. It can actually do 'something' and has a specific reason for being created.
-Christopher Nolan was not on set during filming but he did call Goyer to keep in touch with the film's progress.
-Henry Cavill has to "warm up" his American accent. He can't just 'speak it' on the spot.
-There's no comic relief character in Man of Steel.
-One of Superman's earliest battles is against Faora and a Kryptonia robot. Superman was losing but then fires a heat blast and his reaction seems to indicate that's the first time he's discovered that power.
-When the US Army shows up to attack the three combatants, the robot takes the most damage, Faora moves a bit more but Superman hardly moves an inch. An indicator of the difference in strength and invulnerability level of the film's main fighters.
-Continuing the battle with Faora and the Krypton robot, at some point during the confrontation, Superman realized he can't win.
-The battle that's described is pretty intense. Thrown U-Haul trucks, exploding helicopters, even a facedown slam from Superman on Faora that cracks the ground.
-From the scene being described, the battle is the one onlookers captured last summer during filming where Faora and the infamous Mo-Cap Man confronted Superman.
