Superman: Man Of Steel (2013): Exclusive Movie Climax Details


pic Cosmic Book News has just received another tip on the new Superman movie, the Man of Steel.

You can read our previous early draft spoilers here.

This one has to do with the climax of the movie and sees Superman, Zod and Faora battle it out in Smallville.

Here are the details:

• The showdown between Superman, Zod and Faora is the climax of the film.
• This occurs just after Zod discovers Superman's secret identity as Clark Kent, which results in Zod attacking the Kent Farm.
• The result of the attack leaves Superman "pissed off," battling it out in downtown Smallville vs. Zod and Faora -- who have left the US Armed Forces in ruins.
• Christopher Meloni's character is also a "Superman hater" and skeptical of the super-hero.
Of course I can't confirm any of this, but set images that came out of the Plano, Illinois Smallville shooting for the Man of Steel do seem to corroborate the info.
Previous Smallville-related images have revealed a strong military presence, a Superman and Faora confrontation, Zod (note: in Smallville) and many battle damaged buildings.
In addition, Meloni was spotted on set who plays Colonel Hardy, and the "Superman hater" bit fits in with first draft plans to have General Lane play that part.

Stay tuned to Cosmic Book News as more on the Man Of Steel develops.

Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder starring, Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, and Russel Crowe as Jor-El.
