I'm looking forward to reading the novelization because when watching the movie I felt like quite a few times the story in the movie went from point A to point C and skipped point B. Likely due to things being cut/trimmed.
About the only thing I tweaked was working some of the Kryptonian names and terminology into the dialogue just so that Clark and Lois and the various military folks would know what the name of Zod's ship was, what Faora and Nam-Ek and Jax-Ur were named, etc. This was necessary because I wanted to be able to refer to the Kryptonians by name even if a scene was being told from the POV of Lois or Col. Hardy or Dr. Hamilton or whomever.
Just finished the novelization. I loved it. I always enjoy the reading experience as well as the movie. In the novelization you reference Nam-Ek's size to possible genetic experimentation with Rondor DNA. Was that in the script or a throwback to Nam-Ek of comic book yesteryear?
That was my idea, as a little homage to the comic-book version.
