The writer and director spill some super-sized beans...

Following in the footsteps of our Iron Man 3 spoiler podcast breakdown with Shane Black and Drew Pearce - as well as our Skyfall writers special and the Star Trek Into Darkness dissection - here are the secrets of Man Of Steel, as revealed by director Zack Snyder and writer/producer David S. Goyer on our recent spoiler podcast. Fascinating, illuminating and chock-full of spoilers, you're not going to want to read this feature until you've seen the movie, which, handily, is in cinemas right about now.

David S. Goyer And Zack Snyder On Man Of Steel's Secrets  | In an earlier draft, it was going to start with Clark at The Daily Planet

Snyder: "Calling Man Of Steel ‘Clark Kent Origins’ is a really a nice way of putting it, because for me that’s what it was all about. We could have started this movie with that final Daily Planet scene. You literally could start the movie with him getting off his bike and getting in an elevator, putting his glasses on and coming up, and having Perry White go, ‘Guys this is our new stringer, Clark Kent.’ Then having Lois say, ‘Welcome to the Planet.’ It’s a great line and the movie really could have started that way. The first draft had more of a flashback element."

1 The Private in Man of Steel is a Captain
I love your podcast, I just had a small niggle I wanted to point out. You guys kept referring to the "Private" who said Superman was "KInda hot". She was in fact, a Captain Ferris. It's been suggested she is a new iteration of Carol Ferris, Hal Jordan/Green Lantern's love interest, More
