Get To Know: Superman [Man of Steel] [CK version]
I may have been conceived out there in the endless depths of space… but I was born when the Rocket opened, on Earth, in America. I’ll cherish always the memories Jor-El and Lara gave me… but only as curious mementos of a life that might have been. Krypton bred me, but it was Earth that gave me all I am. All that matters. It was Krypton that made me Superman… but it is the Earth that makes me Human!. -Superman, The Man of Steel
And the way it came down to the end, is it’s very, very emotional. Superman’s about to be forced to kill Zod. So this is just Michael and Henry. The visual effects are minimal here. It’s just mano a mano, basically a struggling, grappling match in order for Superman to try and save the citizens. And it was intense, it was emotional and it was really, really physical for these two guys. They worked really hard and it was actually some of the most arduous of the scenes for these guys. It was really physical, yet so emotional all the way up until Superman has to take Zod out. The welling up and the scream of emotion is just haunting and the entire crew was kind of in awe and frozen when we were shooting this.
