They put on a uniform and protect people – the National Guard and Superman have a lot in common.
The new Superman Movie “Man of Steel” opened today. Anyone who goes to see the movie, will also see a Kentucky National Guardsmen.
Private First Class Kierre Brown had the chance to work with the Superman crew in Hollywood. He is in a one minute video called “Soldiers of Steel” that shows the similarities of National Guard Members and Superman.
His role in the promo was to tie a belt on a little girl they are rescuing and send her up on a helicopter.
“It’s great,” Brown said about working in Hollywood. “I mean I can’t say enough about it.”
Brown said 4,000 National Guard Members applied for this opportunity and only 22 were chosen.
When he returned from the shoot, Brown said he wasn’t allowed to talk about it until it released on May 10.
Friday night, Brown and other soliders were stationed at 20 different movie theatres in Kentucky promoting the National Guard.
