Kevin Costner's role as Jonathan Kent was previously played by Glenn Ford. Both of them have been involved in competing projects about Wyatt Earp: Glenn was cast in Tombstone (1993), but had to drop out, while Costner played Wyatt Earp in Wyatt Earp (1994) opposite Gene Hackman (the original Lex Luthor) as his father. Ironically, Russell Crowe, who plays Jor-El, Superman's other father, has also done a Glenn Ford role. Crowe played outlaw Ben Wade in the remake of 3:10 to Yuma (2007), the same role played by Ford in the original 1957 film. See more »
As Superman and Lois are in the desert, with the military a short distance off, waiting for Zod to arrive, a sonic boom is heard (identified as such by the subtitle), and Superman announces that Zod is arriving. A sonic boom is only created by something traveling faster than the speed of sound, so no sound from such a source would be heard before the source arrives. See more »
Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?

When I was watching the trailer for man of steel I felt that this movie will be the greatest movie for Superman and also it will take the sci-fi genre to the another level and finally when I saw the movie all of my expectations were full filled the movies action scenes were new though the origin was old but they had made a superman which is very difficult to make.
I like this movie and waiting for its next sequel.
In this movie Mr.Snyder has given one of the greatest directions in superhero genre. My results for this movie are positive and I hope the next installment will be greater than this one.
So after watching this film my expectations are now higher from its sequel hope it will also exceed my expectations
