We’re a couple of weeks removed and the marketing machine is still running. And why not? “Man Of Steel” has super-punched its way to over $500 million worldwide, with more international territories still to open. So it’s safe to say it’s a success, and now that the veil has been lifted and the Nolan-level secrecy is over, we start going more behind the scenes of the production.
A new featurette hit over the weekend that details some of the visual effects choices that Zack Snyder and co. made in his “Man Of Steel” reboot. Dealing completely with the gooey metallic substance used on Krypton — called liquid geo — the featurette has interviews with some of the supervisors at Weta Digital talking about Snyder’s vision for the advanced civilization: “He didn’t just want to do a typical screen. You need something that has that look but has to be in a sense more liquid.”
