Man Of Steel not altering tornado depiction
BURBANK, California (AP) - In the upcoming film Man Of Steel, Superman faces off against ruthless outcasts from his home planet. The last son of Krypton also encounters a more realistic force of nature on earth: a deadly tornado.
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder said there was never any discussion about altering the pivotal scene involving a twister following recent deadly storms in Oklahoma.
"He's changed by those events," said Snyder during an interview to promote the movie. "If anything, we feel like our Superman has a connection - not to make light of it - to the kind of grief that happens during those kinds of natural disasters. Also, in a sad way, even Superman can't change that."
A top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado hit the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on May 20, killing 24 people. Another round of violent storms that produced a separate EF5 tornado struck last Friday, leaving nearly two dozen people dead.
