Man Of Steel 3D - Behind The Scenes

UPDATE - we've now reviewed Man Of Steel's post-converted 3D.

In the lead-up to June 14th, we're getting more and more footage released for the upcoming film, Man Of Steel. The Superman flick is being post-converted into 3D (which we can't imagine producer Christopher Nolan is very happy about). Perhaps proving how forgettable Superman Returns was, many news agencies and bloggers have incorrectly reported that Man Of Steel is the caped boy scout's first 3D outing. It's fair to say that Steel's director, Zac Snyder, is wary of Returns' luke-warm reception. The 3D footage used in that film was intermittent, with long periods of time passing in 2D. Snyder has upped the stakes by saying, "anticipating how audiences today embrace 3D, we designed and photographed the movie in a way that would allow Man of Steel to captivate those movie goers." Indeed, Man Of Steel is actually Zac Snyder's second 3D film; the first being the atrociously-titled Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. That movie certainly had its 'visual moments', with Snyder employing fantastic depth in some of its flying scenes. Steel looks like it will build on his work in that area, and some of the footage we've viewed in theatres looks absolutely stunning. 

So, what do you make of the footage being released of the new superhero epic? Will it improve on Ga'Hoole and Returns' 3D?
