The Man of Steel (2013): Black Kryptonite Revealed; Could We See Evil Superman?!

Back in August a super fan unearthed pics of the site where baby Kal-El is reported to crash land in Smallville for the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot, the Man of Steel.

Now, video has surfaced of the area as well.

PropStop shot the video and also found some black crystalline rocks left over from production -- which could be the superheated Green Kryptonite known as Black Kryptonite.

Fans of Smallville should remember Black Kryptonite when it was used to separate Doomsday from its human side. In the comics, Black Kryptonite also effects Kryptonians by splitting them into two, thus creating an evil counterpart. Or at times it has been used to make Superman evil as well (depending on the comic and continuity).

Interestingly enough, many have come out and stated that the first official image of Henry Cavill as Superman looked a bit -- evil, where he is apparently breaking into a bank vault! Furthermore, it appears that the US Govt. is going to be at odds against Superman, for some reason. Speculation was because of Zod, but maybe it is because of something else?!
