On January 12, 2012, we received one of our first glimpses of an intriguing visual from the set of Man of Steel.
It was one of the first released materials and likely earlier in production. In the film, the final scene looks like this:
Could you walk me through the sequence of events from where Clark, in the heat of the moment, decides to vent his frustrations on this truck, where the end result is as we see it AND Clark does not get caught in the process?
Some additional presumptions:
- Clark cannot fly yet.
- Clark likely does not have Flash-like super speed.
- Some unknown amount of time passes from when Clark leaves the bar (daylight) and when the trucker sees his truck (night), however, they are close to Ellesmere Island in the far north latitudes.
- No one coming to or leaving the bar in the meantime said anything about the truck, so it likely did not arrive at that state until shortly before the trucker leaves.
- Ludlow (the trucker) is surprised by the truck so it appears no one heard a commotion outside.
- Based on the direction of the frayed bark, it appears the logs were driven through the truck from above rather than impaled upon the logs.
So in sum:
- What sequence of events would allow Clark, with his power set at the time, produce this bit of abstract art?
- How was it accomplished in a relatively short amount of time without the denizens of Cassidy's Roadhouse hearing the commotion or passing truckers seeing the event?
