Superman: Man Of Steel (2013): "Super" Boy, and Huge Battle Details


Here are a few more tidbits to come out of the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot, the Man Of Steel.

One scene involves Clark when he is a youngster, and the other, a "huge battle!"

Here are the "super" boy details:

"They were filming a scene in the hospital where the Kents were taking a young Clark in for a checkup. Kevin Costner was on set, as well as two boys who were playing young Superman. The scene included breaking of windows on the front of the building, a fish tank, a gumball machine, a mug as well as windows on the Green 1970 Nova and the station wagon all as a result of young Superman letting out a Super Cry."

And the battle:

"I learned that there will be HUGE battle in Plano which will include blowing up the gas station and running a train through the Sears Store during the scene. Also they will be smashing a pickup truck into the Kent House in Yorkville as a result of a tornado."

These come from Io9, with someone claiming to have been around for the filming at the Valley West Community Hospital in Sandwich, Illinois.

The first, in regards to when Clark is young, seems to insinuate that Snyder is giving us a heavy-handed origin story. Plus, we also heard about a certain funeral and gravestone.

A lot of fans seem to be put off by this, as it's all been done before, and want to skip the origin and get right to the action.

I'm tending to agree.

Hit us up below in the comments with your thoughts. Does Snyder need to be redoing a full-fledged origin story?
