Jay Oliva Reveals What Went into Man of Steel’s Epic Fight Scene


Animation Director Jay Oliva went to Twitter to discuss a scene that he and Zack Snyder storyboarded together and described how impressed he was at how good Snyder did at translating that pitch to live action.

After asking him if he created the scene or just created the storyboards he went on to credit the team that he worked with, how the scene was ultimately created and what the inspiration was behind the scene.

He describe creating the scene as “freeing” having directed many DC Animated films such as The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox, Justice League Dark and many more, and not having the budget to fully go all out as he was able too and describes anime as a huge inspiration in forming the scene.

You can view the scene below:

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
