David Goyer Details The Only Two Scenes Cut From Man Of Steel
Man of Steel is just about ready to take theaters by storm, and the final media blitz is winding down. Zack Snyder, David Goyer, Henry Cavill and the rest of the crew are about to show off their hard work and see whether or not it lives up to all the hype (Spoiler Alert: It does and it’s great). Bleeding Cool got a chance to speak to script writer David Goyer about the film. During there chat he revealed the details behind the only two scenes that didn’t make it into the movie.
Deborah Snyder had teased in a previous interview that Zack had gotten to include everything he wanted and there was only one scene they filmed that was cut. It featured a baby Clark Kent. Goyer explains what that scene involved and he also talked about a scene that was cut during the writing stage:
The finished film is relatively close to my first draft. I’d say it’s 75% the same, 80%. All of the characters are the same and the basic structure is the same but there are a couple of tiny scenes that we cut out.
There was a little scene in which Jonathan and Martha take a baby Kal to a paediatrician because he’s starting to experience these changes. They do a hearing test on him where they’re dialling up these sounds and baby Kal screams and it blows out all the windows. It was a funny scene but after the armageddon on Krypton – originally we went from that to baby Kal to the fishing trawler – it just felt weird. We didn’t need it. Tonally it felt off.
Believe it or not there was another action scene – we didn’t film it. After Zod first announces himself [the Krpytonians] provide a demonstration of their might. They drop Faora into Shanghai and NamEk, who is the big eight foot tall guy who doesn’t speak, they drop him another foreign city. It was another five pages of crazy Kryptonian destruction. We didn’t need it. We knew that, my god, there’s already a lot of action.
The baby Clark scene was filmed, so there’s a really good chance it will find its way on to the home video release. Deborah and Zack Snyder have already said they’re hard at work on the DVD/Blu-ray so we can only keep our fingers crossed now. It sounds like a pretty interesting scene. The other one got cut during the writing stage, so it obviously didn’t affect things too much as story parts were being worked on and shifted around. What do you think about the deleted scenes, or rather the lack thereof? Are you surprised there were just one scene filmed that wasn’t included?
