New “Man of Steel” set videos show Henry Cavill saving the day

New “Man of Steel” set videos show Henry Cavill saving the day (photo)

Posted by on

Hot off the heels of the “Man of SteelVancouver Island set photos that hit the web earlier this week are two set videos showing leading man Henry Cavill filming a rescue mission. Zack Snyder can be seen directing Cavill and a group of men dressed in work uniforms on a set created to look like a helipad. The whole scene is set up against a green screen so its hard to tell what exactly the context of the sequence is, but it’s clear from the videos and previous photos that Cavill’s titular Man of Steel is pulling off a rescue mission.

Cavill can be seen running up a set of stairs with the workers and ushering them onto the helicopter after it lands. After they’ve safely boarded, he runs over to another part of the helipad and looks at something off in the distance.

In the second video, Cavill can be seen trying to hold put a gear-shaped metal object that looks like it’s about to fall onto the helipad. It’s unclear what the item is or why it’s about to fall on the helipad, but it’s clear that it’s no good for Superman or anyone else involved.

Judging by earlier set photos, it seems like Cavill is in Clark Kent mode during these scenes despite the fact he’s using his impressive Superman strength to save these men. It could be that this is the event that Amy Adams‘ Lois Lane it reporting on in the photos that hit the web of her on set.

It’s funny to see Cavill doing some quick pull ups for a workout in the first set video. Doesn’t the man — or Snyder’s budget — have enough money to have him in an actual gym? As a potty-mouthed observer states in the video, Cavill certainly is beefy enough to pull off a convincing Superman.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
