When it comes to the Superman-family titles, it appears as though the New 52 Superman really will be gone... dead... as per the story currently playing out in the comics.
The "Action Comics" description in Previews states that Lex Luthor "beat" Superman and is now intent on replacing him as "protector of Metropolis".
What about Lois Lane?
APPEARING IN: SUPERWOMAN written and drawn by Phil Jimenez
STATUS QUO SHIFT: From star reporter to superhero!
WHY THEY WEAR THE SHIELD: To continue the legacy of Superman and make the world a better place!
I can talk a bit about it, sure - but not much. This is definitely the same Kara you saw in the New 52 SUPERGIRL series, sixteen years old, new to Earth. In story time, she has been on Earth for less than a year, and in that time has gotten into some trouble, be it her skirmish in Siberia when she landed, or her actions as a Red Lantern. But she's putting that anger in the past, and looking forward, thanks to some new friends and a fresh start as seen in SUPERGIRL: REBIRTH.
The book will pick up from Super League, going on right now in the Superman family of books, BUT Super League is not required to pick up SUPERGIRL: REBIRTH, which will set the stage all on its own if you like. As for supporting cast, we'll see some new faces, some faces from previous adventures Kara has had, and one major villain rearing his Cybernetic Head as the Cyborg Superman comes in search of Kara. In the previous series, the readers knew he was Zor-El, but he did not, and Kara did not. Now that information is out, and it changes everything.
Our largest sequences were the Batmobile chase, the kidnapping of Lois and confrontation with Superman and Lex on top of LexCorp tower and the Martha Rescue sequence which includes the warehouse fight.
We were responsible for building the new post MAN OF STEEL Metropolis, Wayne Manor and Washington DC. Also Scanline created the vignettes showing Superman acting on a worldwide basis while the questions raised by his existence are debating on television.
Additionally we had a bit of fun introducing Aquaman's in his cameo.
How did you approach and created the various sequences of Superman saving people?
Zack had a very specific idea for these four long and distinct shots of Superman saving people on a global scale to be woven into a montage of broadcasters debating what it means for the world to have someone like this a part of it. The genesis of each of the vignettes started (as it does with all shots on his films) with a series of storyboards drawn by Zack himself. To refine the ideas art director Jelmer Boskma created a series of illustrations to help define mood, lighting and some of the more specific details of the individual scenes. Being able to go back and forth with Zack in this manner allowed us to narrow our focus as we moved into actual shot production.
The Colorado vignette that was photographed in the backlot of the studio in Michigan with rooftop sets on asphalt. In post we used our flowline software to simulate the river and debris going around the houses. We extended the environment with added extra houses, trees and distant mountain ranges. We ended up replacing the sky to give it a bit more visual interest and as we turn around we added in Superman.
BRENNER: In the script there were more story lines than you see in the movie today. That was probably our biggest editorial issue in trying to get the cut down to a reasonable length. For us, the trickiest section was the beginning of the film, until the point where Bruce Wayne tells Alfred the truth about what is on the "White Portugese" ship... the truth about his plan. This moment set into motion everything until the end of the film really. Until that point the movie was always tracking many solo paths, some intersecting, some not. Finally in this scene, the paths fork into one road. In the script there are more subplots than you see in the movie right now. Also in terms of building this beginning we had to move things around. In the script, Lex was introduced much later, but we found that in watching the movie - because he's such an important player, it was best to set him up sooner. Plus, his presence has so much energy, a twisted comic energy that boosted the film. Generally, BvS was a unique challenge in that we had not one but two protagonists, each with an alter-ego. So there was Clark Kent, Superman, Bruce Wayne and Batman. And then surrounding them are Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Wallace Keefe (the guy who loses his legs when Wayne Tower falls), Perry White, Martha Kent, Holly Hunter's character (Senator Finch), and still more characters orbiting them.
Q: That's a LOT to juggle.
BRENNER: It was a lot to juggle. So the plot lines of a couple characters had to go. These people are currently in the movie but we don't track them, and it's okay. What's kind of fun is that we went back and did an extended cut where we put a lot of this stuff back, and we refined it into the same rhythm as the theatrical release. So what was once a nearly four hour cut with absolutely everything was ridiculous - ended up being about a three hour cut, once all these added storylines were refined with the fat was cut out.
Q: Wow. Four hours.
BRENNER: I remember being a little worried. Three and a half hours, okay, that's fine for a movie of this size, the way Zack likes to work. This was more daunting. But we cut down "Man of Steel" from about 3 and half hours, I knew we'd get this done.
