Clark Kent is an alien who as a child was evacuated from his dying world and came to Earth, living as a normal human. But when survivors of his alien home invade Earth, he must reveal himself to the world.
Has three different actors portray Clark Kent at different ages, the most of the modern era, in a single superhero film. Superman (1978) used five actors, because of child labor laws, so the normal practice is to cast two similar looking babies for one role. An animated CGI baby was used in this film.
Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Lor-Em: Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
At one point in the Zod Vs. Superman fight, Superman is, while floating mid-air, knocked out after being shot-put through several buildings. Zod then hits him from below and elevates him towards space at high speeds. From the looks of it, the two of them go up in a vertical line until they hit a Wayne Industries Satellite. The moment they are going back down, it is most noticeable that they are doing so at a certain angle. It's not straight down at all. Even when they enter the atmosphere and start catching fire, the audience can really perceive them approach the Earth's surface diagonally. However, when they land, they are still within Metropolis. Much more surprisingly, they're only but a couple of blocks away from where they started--an idea to be introduced by Lois Lane's rather quick appearance. Basing on the distance they traveled up into space and the angle they fell at, Zod and Superman should have impacted at a location miles away from the origin point of the battle, even more so, miles away from Metropolis itself.
There is a dedication in the closing credits to producer Lloyd Phillips.
