Check out Real Steel storyboards by Trevor Goring!
Real Steel has some amazing robot boxing scenes, but one of the most memorable fights is actually with a bull. In this scene, Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) has a boxing match with a bull named "Black Thunder" at the county fair. Trevor Goring is one of the storyboard artists and he recently shared some boards that show a slightly different take on the scene. Among other things, the robot was named Supernova and the bull was named Zeus. The scene was highly controversial with some, like Crave Online, calling it "degrading."
Trevor Goring is a professional storyboard artist who's worked on major movies like Thor: The Dark World (2013), Independence Day (1996) and Watchmen (2009).

Official Real Steel Synopsis
"Enter the not-so-distant future where boxing has gone high-tech - 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots have taken over the ring. Starring Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter turned small-time promoter, Real Steel is a riveting, white-knuckle action ride that will leave you cheering. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the thrill-packed arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback."
