It's a bird, it's a plane, it's … the Ohio State Marching Band!

Just a week after moonwalking into everyone's hearts – and social media – with its celebration of the 25th anniversary release of Michael Jackson's album Bad, the Ohio State Marching Band has done it again, this time during Saturday's halftime show of the Ohio State-Penn State football game.

The new theme was Hollywood Blockbusters, and, in the midst of the main title to this year's Man of Steel, band members split into two groups, one of which formed a leaning building while the other created the figure of Superman, complete with cape, flying across the field to right the falling structure.

The mash-up will begin production next year and be released July 17, 2015, reports EW.com. Man of Steel stars Amy Adams (as Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Diane Lane (Martha Kent) have also been announced to return.

You don't become Superman overnight.

"It's a very, very long and involved process," Henry Cavill told PEOPLE at Monday's Man of Steel premiere in New York – the movie opened nationwide Friday – about his exhausting physical transformation from human to superhuman.

It went in stages. And all of them were painful.
