Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is now in production as many set photos and videos have leaked onto the Internet. Russell Crowe has tweeted a spoiler with some details regarding his role as Jor-El and a battle scene with Michael Shannon who plays General Zod.

UPDATE: Photo below of Crowe as Jor-El

Crowe’s tweet:

“15km bike ride,umpteen hours fighting Michael Shannon. He’s very hard to put down. Hard to tell who wins, we are still fighting tomorrow.”

“@alanthomasdoyle Stay around for the Saturday. That really is the only day I can guarantee you any time . I’m trying to save a planet here.”

“@alanthomasdoyle Alas, I’m no superhero.Just related to one.”

Based on those tweets, it sounds like Crowe’s Jor-El takes on Shannon’s General Zod on Krypton before its destruction, which causes a young Kal-El to be sent to the planet earth where he falls under the care of Jonathan (Kevin Costner) and Martha Kent. (Diane Lane)

The film is set to hit theaters on June 14th, 2013.
