"Man of Steel" Action Hero Vignette Figure

Wouldn't that be like the devil scheduling a meeting with God somewhere and saying, "You think we could just skip the whole Armageddon thing?"
This issue was more introspective than previous entries, and not just with the dark god of Apokolips. Lex and Booster also examine themselves and each other. Booster has come to terms with his monumental ego, his need for public adoration, but he's moved past it and is earnestly trying to do what's right. He recognizes those same narcissistic traits in Lex, and he recognizes Lex's capacity for good as well. Unfortunately, Lex is too wrapped up in his drive and ambition to hear Booster's warning.
The superhero gets his energy from the electromagnetic radiation contained in the light from our sun - giving him various super powers here on Earth, including superhuman strength and the power of flight.
The students therefore decided to test his solar cell efficiency - the measure of how much energy output solar cells give out for each unit of energy they absorb from the Sun.
This equation is used to calculate the efficiency of regular solar cells - such as photovoltaic panels on the roofs of buildings.
The most efficient solar cells on Earth have a 44.7 per cent efficiency, according to this equation.
Using a rough estimate of the area of Superman's body in contact with the sun's rays, the team was able to work out that he absorbs 1096 joules per second from the sun.
The team then needed to calculate the amount of energy Superman actually uses in flight to overcome drag forces. They found that - for an eight hour flight at an altitude of 30 km - he would use 207 billion joules of energy to overcome drag forces and stay in the air over the course of the journey.
Based on the two figures, the students calculated that Superman has a solar cell efficiency of 656,000 per cent - in other words, he used far more energy in flight than he can possibly absorb from the Sun.
According to the law of conservation of energy, energy cannot be created or destroyed within a closed system - it can only be converted. It would therefore be impossible for him to be getting all of his energy from the Sun.
The students note that he must be obtaining energy from alternate sources. Alternatively, they said it is possible that instead of immediately using all energy he obtains, he stores the energy for future use.
The findings were published in the Journal of Physics Special Topics, a peer-reviewed student journal run by the University's Department of Physics and Astronomy.

It's not the hi-res version (which will not be released to the general public in the near future), but it does give a decent idea, for those who were interested and have not managed to find a pirate copy somewhere on the internet:

First we have a series of images from Twitter user The Bananadoctor, who offers a series of images from the filming. This is a brief sample of the images, which feature destruction, broken green screens from storms, and other goodies:
There is also a whole series of images available at Michigan Movies and More under Bananadoc's monniker as well. Head on over to check them out!
According to an article on Variety, the screens were 465 feet long and twenty feet high, more than doubling the size of the screens last year. From the article:
“That’s just going to live in that hall. We’ll post extended trailers and stills, but that presentation, that was just for those fans,” said Kroll, meaning those who saw it were the first and the last - except of those for those who took pictures and posted them.
For the rest, head on over to the main article.
