Man of Steel: Countdown - Side by Side Photos

Bringing you the image I think best suits this whole leading up to the release of the film "Man of Steel", it shows us an American Staple... you see it I know. 

Here is a very cool man, hired to create this iconic American Flag... the town has decided to keep this as a memory and staple to the community.

Here is a man behind the scenes making sure everything was being built to specs, he was very nice to me. We chatted for a few minutes about everything, before he walked away to do his job... I took a photo. Bad thing is I didn't bother to get his name, I really was just very happy he didn't throw me off the set. I am sure I can track him down after the film gets released... which is uhmmm....
It's today... it's here... fingers crossed.

  1. Music- Yes, I believe I can fly.

    It's all the little folks you don't see in the film that make the film.

  2. Cool they are keeping the flag!
    Yes, it's today. I'll be watching it in about seven hours.

  3. R Kelly? Colour me surprised, Jeremy :)

  4. It's an awesome paining and I can see why they're keeping it Jeremy. I love that R. Kelly song and it's very uncharacteristic of his usual "sexy-time" music.

  5. Any movie is made excellent by the efforts of an army of caring artists behind the scenes!

  6. It looks nice. I hope you have a great time watching the movie!

  7. Nice. Too bad you didn't get his name. Where was this taken? I wish I could get the tunes, but you know--slow Internet still.

    You haven't been to Metropolis, IL, have you? If you like Superman memorabelia you'll go nuts!

    Have a good time, my friend!

  8. Wow, after looking at all the photos of the past few've had some real excitement going on. Loved the tour of all the places made to fit the movie and loved the blue truck.

    When I lived in California I got to do some extra work on a few films and it was amazing to watch how things were done. I think what amazed me most of how movies were shot in piecemeal. So you were on the set area and saw some of the pieces being shot and then you saw it in the theater. Wow, and you saw the finished scene and all the added extra pieces you didn't see being filmed. Of course some of the work was all studio and computers. Still, it's fascinating.

    Btw, I do like this song and he has a lovely voice for it!

    I'm not sure when I'll get to see this film. Workin on it.


  9. That's really amazing! But I'm not really into Superman and all :p
