So in preparation for Man of Steel
's Blu-Ray and DVD release, a Q&A was held with Kevin Smith, Zack Snyder, and the two leads, and this article
has compiled a list of their answers. But some of the stuff I just feel like responding to.
2. So it's official, there was indeed a collateral bodycount from Sup's and Zod's fight, Zach Snyder claiming it's at least 5000 dead. But I don't buy what he says that: "There's a sadness to the end of the movie — there's a human price, and that's what weighs on Superman." Nope, the ending felt pretty happy and triumphant, judging from the music playing. No sadness about the lives lost at all.
3. According to Cavill "[Sup]'s bullied and he trashes the guy's truck, which wasn't the right thing to do." Okay, but the movie treats it like the guy deserved it. "Later, of course, Clark must deal with the biggest bully in the world, and unfortunately the question of how to stop that kind of bullying has no peaceful answer." So bullies do
deserve retaliation, or don't? Getting mixed messages here.
10. Superman wears a cape as a kid because "It's inside of him — he's pretending to be Kryptonian without knowing it," explained Snyder. "It's an affinity towards what's natural in the Kryptonian culture." So... Kryptonians are genetically drawn to wearing capes. And yet none of the Kryptonians we saw in the prologue were wearing any. Huh.
That's all I gotta say about that.

I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with a tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari-Kiri rock.
