[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1714:]]Yesterday saw a reported description leak for a couple scenes for the new Superman movie, the Man of Steel.

Our source who has been filling us in on this movie, in addition to The Dark Knight Rises and more, got back to us saying that the description was indeed the one and the same as the one he provided us at the end of April where Zod was said to threaten and warn Superman.

The new description first appeared on the IMDb message boards with the original poster since coming out revealing his involvement in the film industry, including his name, Jonathan Rothbart, listed on IMDb as a visual effects supervisor for various movies.

I have been given the clear, this information isn't secret, I can disclose what I please. It wasn't a conference, perhaps I was a tad misleading in that regard. It was a gathering, banquet of sorts, of VFX artists on WB payroll. For the poster with ties into the business, ask around, it was a limited invitation event, but someone else out there has got to be able to verify the event took place. It was at the Langham Huntington in Pasadena. We were served a Caesar salad followed by smoked salmon. I can assure you this event took place. WETA presented a long sizzle reel, the Man of Steel clips were just part of it. And finally, the proof you've all be waiting for. My name is Jonathan Rothbart. I've been working in effects my whole life. My first major film was part of a massive team on Empire Strikes Back. I still have my shirt from the film, one that ONLY those involved with the production would have. I did freelance work with ILM for a while early in my career then settled into a great job at an effects house called The Orphanage. I have a great relationship with WB, and I was honored to be invited to the event. I under skepticism, I do. But you'll see the exact shots I spoke of, to a tee, in the finished film. And I'll come back to these boards and prove it. I guarantee someone else will speak about this footage at some point today, just wait for the news to break.

The leak comes at an interesting time as Zack Snyder is due to talk about the Man of Steel, this Friday, May 20th, at the HeroComplex Film Festival.
