Man of Steel

Visible crew/equipment: During the final battle, there's a building falling. When the people are running towards the ambulance, one girl in a pink shirt/sweater runs past a car and a boom mic is reflected on the windshield.


Visible crew/equipment: As Kal-El is flying for the first time, there is a shot from behind him flying through a canyon. In this shot, one can notice to the bottom left of screen a stage light reflection. (00:51:35)

Casual Person

Visible crew/equipment: As the two helicopters land, and as the soldiers come out, the camera equipment is reflected in the glass.

Visible crew/equipment: As the soldiers duck behind the truck asking "What about the guy in blue?", the cameraman is reflected on the panel in front of him.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Clark is on the fishing boat and is about to be "crushed" there is a bundle of rope that is dropped on the deck. The bundle changes from what looks like cut up strands when it drops, to a nice looped up solid piece when the camera cuts to him picking it up.

Clark Kent: My father believed that if the world found out who I really was, they'd reject me... Out of fear. He was convinced that the world wasn't ready. What do you think?

More trivia for Man of Steel

Question: Why did Jor-El send the Codex to Earth along with Kal-El? Krypton was being destroyed, everyone on the planet was going to die and Zod and his followers were trapped in the Phantom Zone. There doesn't seem to be any need to send the Codex to Earth as Clark had no knowledge of it and even if he did, he wouldn't be able to use it.

Answer: When Jor-El stole the Codex, Zod and his followers were not yet sent to the Phantom Zone and Krypton had not begun its destruction. Jor-El was opposed to Zod's plan to use the Codex. Once Zod's rebellion against the council had begun, Jor-El stole the main Codex and hid it with Kal-El. While Jor-El knew Krypton would be destroyed, he didn't know when and wanted to prevent Zod from using the Codex as planned. Zod then killed Jor-El, the council regained control and ended the rebellion, and then sent Zod and his followers to the Phantom Zone (not knowing or believing Krypton was going to be destroyed).
