Steelton man featured in "Man of Steel" movie trailer

Posted: Updated:

If you go to the movies, look for a local soldier in a preview: a Pennsylvania National Guard member, who works at Fort Indiantown Gap, is featured in a trailer for the new Superman movie, "Man of Steel."

Specialist Jarrett Seigle works at Fort Indiantown Gap as an Admin Specialist.

"[I] respond to any major chemical catastrophe[s]," said Seigle.

Seigle has also helped natural disaster victims in the midstate. He worked during Tropical Storm Lee. 

"We rescued 125 people and assisted 500" during that storm, he said.

At any moment, he could be called to defend our country overseas.

Movie director Zach Snyder believes this Steelton-Highspire High School graduate -- and every other citizen soldier in the National Guard -- is a man of steel.

That's why the movie trailers for Snyder's Superman film feature real National Guard members, including Seigle.

The trailers liken soldiers to Superman. Hyperbole? Yes, but there is truth at the core.

"Everyday you walk past Clark Kent, then he changes into his uniform. Similar to what we do here in the military," said Seigle. "Once we change into that uniform, it's all about the community around us. No more selfish activity, just trying to get the job done."

Seigle was selected for the gig out of about 6,000 soldiers. Seigle said one of the casting questions was, "If you had a super power, what would it be?"

"My answer was, just to fly. I'm actually pursuing a career in pilot school right now," said Seigle.
