In the following video, Motley Fool energy analysts Taylor Muckerman and Joel South take a close look at what to expect from the upcoming earnings report for Nucor (NYSE:NUE), the largest steel producer in the United States, and whether or not it will beat Man of Steel's box office performance in terms of earnings this quarter. Man of Steel took in $128.6 million in its opening weekend, whereas NUE only made $84.8 million in the first quarter of 2013. Taylor and Joel also discuss the steel industry as a whole, and why factors such as low steel prices and increased competition from aluminum in the auto market are causing several producers to suffer.
