As time moves closer to the release date of Zack Synder’s ‘Man of Steel’, the director behind this latest reboot of Superman has been sharing more and more details in regards to what fans can expect. Batman’s Christopher Nolan has also been dishing some details that has fans counting down the days until the beloved Kryptonian enters theaters in June of 2013.
Here’s what the ‘Sucker Punch’ helmer had to say in a recent interview about the overall tone of ‘Man of Steel’. “We tried to approach this as though there’s never been a Superman movie before, but at the same time respecting the canon and mythology. There are the pillars that you have to respect, and I’m not about to break them. But it is fun for me to bend them and mess with them.” Adding how important is for him to plunge into Clark Kent’s origins and depicting on screen in a very realistic way. “Traditional Superman fans know what it’s all about, and they will hopefully love and associate with the character anyway. But the people who aren’t die-hard Superman fans still need to associate with the character, and that needs to have some realism in today’s world, certainly, in sense of a science as opposed to mythology attached to it as well.”
Christopher Nolan has also been adding to the buzz, referring to ‘Man of Steel’ as “thrilling” with a “fresh take” on the popular story. “Producing is a lot easier than directing. In fact, I’m producing even as we speak! It’s pretty amazing what [Zack Snyder] has taken on and I think people are going to be thrilled. There’s a lot of finishing doing, there’s a lot of complexity going on, but I think that it will be thrilling.”
As for how Snyder felt about working with Nolan, he replied – “There’s a logic and concreteness that has to exist with Chris. You can’t just do stuff because it’s cool. He demands that there be story and character behind all of it, which I’m a big fan of.”
