If you would like to remain wholly and completely in the dark as to what happens in MAN OF STEEL until a trailer drops, then click away. Go and read a Superman comic.  Check out another article. Peruse someone's gallery on Movie Hotties.

Okay.  MAN OF STEEL has been filming recently on Edwards Airforce Base in California, and Josh Ballze over at Nuke the Fridge managed to score the chance to look at some test footage from the shooting that has taken place there.  And no, you can't look it for yourself.  Here's what he had to say, adding also that the scene seems to be centered around Earth's forces making some sort of deal with the representatives of main villain General Zod (Michael Shannon):

"The scene is set up in the bases’ proving grounds, vast dried flatlands as we spy a barricade of some sort.  Concrete military dividers form a crude wall as soldiers and Tanks gather with all weapons prone in one direction: the other side of the wall.  Who’s on the other side, none other then Superman and Faora: General Zod's wife.  She is indeed sporting a black alien uniform, her hair sleek back, draping down to a long black cape as it blows in the desert wind.  She and Superman then walk over to a vast technical array of lighting rigs, camera dollys and a massive green screen: his own red cape dancing on the winds as dust is kicked up in their path.  From this point the footage takes a page from “Chronicle” as it spins and falls, tucked away by the mystery cameraman as everything goes black.  Our mystery source has indeed provided me such a covert scoop it would make even Lois Lane flush with envy."

As for that dialogue I mentioned, it goes something like this:

"{Exterior Shot} Various Military Vehicles and 200 military soldiers are prone, all in formations as if ready to stand off as they wait for TWO female Kryptonians to land their ships.  Among them is Faora as she walks past Superman himself, standing and ever ready.  Faora then walks over to Colonel Hardy who stands with his men behind the barricade as she begins to speak:

FAORA: General Zod wants this woman to come with me.

Faora then gestures to none other than Lois Lane.  Hardy is quick to object.

COLONEL HARDY: You asked for the Alien, you never said anything about one of our women!

FAORA:Shal I tell the General you are not willing to comply?

COLONEL HARDY: I don't care what you tell him!

Lois then emerges from behind the barricade as she gestures to Hardy.

LOIS LANE: It's okay, I'll go.

Louis follows Faora as they walk back to the shipSuperman tries to stop her, fearing for Lois' life.  Faora then finally addresses Superman.

FAORA: If I was going to kill her she would be dead already.  I am incapable of emotion."

June 14th, 2013 is the release date for MAN OF STEEL, though if you're at all a Superman fan I'm sure you knew that already. 

And in a case of complete non-news, Amy Adams (Lois Lane) is beautiful:

Amy Adams is lovely as usual

Extra Tidbit: Quentin Tarantino once boasted that he was writing a 20 page review of SUPERMAN RETURNS, and has said he would have picked Bryan Singer for best director at Cannes Film Festival in 2006.

Seeing as Superman Returns was the perfect homage to someone else's work and that's something that Tarantino does a lot of, it doesn't surprise me.

I bet this scene will be slowed down, and then sped back up again. Snyder is wrong for this project.

TBH, I love Snyder but with his tendency for sex and violence in his films, I'm still expecting Superman to fuck Lois through a wall.

i never got into the superman films, i probably will watch this because of Nolans involvement, but i can predict if this does well, we will see a bunch of DC reboots and eventually a Justice League much like the marvel film production did

What I have heard, which may of course not be true as tends to be the case with rumors, is that neither MAN OF STEEL nor GREEN LANTERN will be part of a Justice League movie's continuity. Just like Batman is already set to be rebooted, whoever ends up playing Superman and Green Lantern in a Justice League movie will be actors that are not Henry Cavill and Ryan Reynolds. I know it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, but from all accounts MAN OF STEEL is a one shot, as it were. The even

I know it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, but from all accounts MAN OF STEEL is a one shot, as it were. The even weirder part of that selfsame rumor claimed that DC would go the opposite route of Marvel by starting with a Justice League movie and then giving the characters solo movies after that. Which really makes no sense. Then again, people make movie-related decisions all the time that make no sense, so...
