Man of Steel may not have had a ton of soul, but when it came to being a technical showcase, director Zack Snyder and his production teams knocked the ball out of the park and into orbit. A ton of green screen and all manner of special effects went into making this film. Check out some behind the scenes for yourself, and marvel at General Zod’s intimidating pillow armour.
Seriously, look at that picture of Zod below, and then look at how seamlessly his armour was rendered over that foam. Say what you like about Man of Steel, but there’s no denying that it had some of the best special effects this year. Hell, most of the time I didn’t even realise that the cape on Cavill was CGI. And when a special effect manages to accomplish that, then you know that the folks behind it are damn good.
