According to Kevin Smith's account (found in An Evening with Kevin Smith (2002)), when he was attached to write a Superman movie, he met with producer Jon Peters. Peters insisted on Superman fighting a giant mechanical spider, super-villain Braniac fighting a polar bear, and so on (much to the frustration of Smith and WB/DC executives, they even asked Smith to work around it by calling the mechanical spider something different, according to Smith). Eventually Smith left and Peters went on to make Wild Wild West (1999), featuring a giant mechanical spider. Superman Returns (2006) was eventually made with Bryan Singer and its sequel was abandoned. With the success of Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins (2005) franchise, he and the series writer David S. Goyer were brought in to helm Man of Steel (2013) along with Zack Snyder. Jon Peters is one of the film's producers along with Christopher Nolan's usual team of producers. The 'World Engines' that Superman has to destroy resemble giant spiders. There is also a scene in which a polar bear is running through the Arctic as the team explores the Kryptonian vessel that had been discovered in the ice. See more »
When Lois Lane falls from the cargo plane, everything else in the air around her is being sucked upwards, towards the singularity that was created after the cargo plane impacted Zod's ship. She should have been drawn upwards towards the singularity with all the other debris, rather than falling in the opposite direction down towards the earth. Then after Superman flies up to catch her, he himself has to struggle to fly down away from the singularity and get back down to earth. See more »
Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Look to the stars, like our ancestors did! There are habitable worlds within reach. We can begin by using the old outposts.
Are you seriously suggesting that we evacuate the entire planet?
No, everybody here is already dead. Give me ...

The worlds greatest superhero gets the movie he deserves.
I saw Man Of Steel last night at an advance screening and at no point was I looking down on the movie.From the trailers and TV spots the movie really gets you interested and dying for more.And the Movie itself soars(yes I know ha-ha)above the expectations.
First of all Henry Cavill is an excellent Clark Kent/Superman.He really gives the character that "not wanted" or "don't feel like you belong" feeling.The cast in the movie is excellent including Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon.Russell Crowe really expands on Jor-el's character and makes him more than just a voice helping Clark.Michael Shannon as Zod is terrific.He was even better than Superman 2's Zod.
The fight scenes in the movie are astonishing.It makes up for all the lack of conflict Superman Returns had.The fight scenes are very destructive yes but there is a very good story around it so it wasn't just mindless explosions like Transformers.Man of steel was by far the best movie of the year.
