Speaking with Bleeding Cool, Man of Steel writer David Goyer talked about some of the deleted scenes for the film.
Goyer on a scene involving baby Clark Kent: "A little scene in which Jonathan and Martha take a baby Kal to a paediatrician because he's starting to experience these changes. They do a hearing test on him where they're dialling up these sounds and baby Kal screams and it blows out all the windows. It was a funny scene, but after the Armageddon on Krypton -- originally we went from that to baby Kal to the fishing trawler -- it just felt weird. We didn't need it. Tonally it felt off."
Goyer on another deleted scene involving General Zod and his followers: "Believe it or not there was another action scene. After Zod first announces himself [the Krpytonians] provide a demonstration of their might. They drop Faora into Shanghai and Namek, who is the big eight foot tall guy who doesn't speak, they drop him another foreign city. It was another five pages of crazy Kryptonian destruction. We didn't need it. We knew that, my God, there's already a lot of action."
