Zack Snyder On Making MAN OF STEEL
Courtesy of Warner Bros., CBM has a studio interview with director Zack Snyder, the man poised to put Superman back atop the superhero throne. Visit our Superman section for all the latest news on the massive remake.
"I'm a bit of a fan but I can't say that when the opportunity came I wasn't a bit hesitant because of my love of the character. But it was one of those things where 'If I don't do it, someone else will.' It's like reverse-responsibility.
Henry comes from a military family. So, if Superman is kind of like a first-responder, in some weird way - he's a volunteer, he doesn't look for any praise of any kind, he's really just looking to help as best he can. And I think because Henry's brothers are all in the military and it's something he's grown up with, that earnestness is not weird to him. It's not cheesy or put on. If I say 'Then you're going to help these people' it's like 'Yeah, of course I am.' Yes he's acting but that's not a thing he has to look deep for. That's the essence of Superman in many ways."
