Zack Snyder Talks Approach To Superman's Flight And Recreating Krypton In MAN OF STEEL
Man Of Steel director Zack Snyder talks more about the highly anticipated film, discussing the "more violent experience" of Superman's flight abilities, reinventing Krypton, and Henry Cavill's take on the iconic character.
With the marketing campaign for Man Of Steel now underway, we've been getting more details about the highly anticipated Superman film. In an interview with SFX, director Zack Snyder discusses shares his thoughts on Henry Cavill in the extremely iconic titular role, stating things that I'm sure many of us can agree on. “God, he’s so Supermanish it’s crazy! There was a telling moment – we put him in the Christopher Reeve costume, because we didn’t have a suit yet, we just had the old spandex suit. He stepped out of the trailer and no one laughed. It’s the difference between being Superman and dressing up like Superman. If I’m dressed up like Superman it’s like a Halloween costume. If you’re Henry it’s your clothes. It’s awesome. Watch the movie and you’re like ‘Holy shit, that’s Superman.’ And it’s not weird or crazy, it’s just cool.”
Snyder also talks about the approach taken to Superman's abilities to fly, calling it "raw" and more violent. “It’s a more violent experience. It’s raw. It takes effort to do it, and that’s what we were really going for. It’s almost like there’s this kind of Right Stuff quality to it. He’s constantly booming around, accelerating. You think he’s going as fast as he can and then it’s like ‘Yeeaahh!’ He’s always got an extra gear he can use.” Finally, the director talks about recreating the world of Krypton, revealing that he aimed at giving it an "ancient" yet "not unbelievable" feel. “I really wanted my Krypton to be this kind of special place that’s immersive and totally different from Earth, but not unbelievable. And ancient. I really wanted to give this ancient feeling to Krypton. I love technology that’s rusty because it’s so old. It’s so advanced, but it’s so old. That was the kind of world that I tried to create. A dying world that’s ancient and torn apart.” For more on Man Of Steel, be sure to pick up the latest issue of SFX.
Man Of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and Russell Crowe. The film is set to hit theaters June 14th.
