Bryan Singer Would Have Done MAN OF STEEL "A Little Differently"; Reveals Why He Didn't Cast Henry Cavill in SUPERMAN RETURNS

X-Men Bryan Singer reveals why he would have approached Man of Steel differently and comments on his decision to not cast Henry Cavill in Superman Returns. Check it out!


"Yeah. I saw it when it came out," X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer told Empire Magazine in their latest issue when asked if he decided to watch Zack Snyder's Man of Steel last summer. "Um...I think Henry Cavill is great. I knew Henry. He and I were friends years ago. Oddly enough, the reason I didn't cast him was because I was making a sequel to Christopher Reeve and I wanted somebody who embodied Reeve more." That man would of course be Brandon Routh, an actor who has surprisingly done very little since playing the iconic DC superhero. Regardless, Singer would then go on to praise the movie, while simultaneously hinting that he would have handled the reboot in a much different way. Could he be referring to the now infamous scene where Superman kills Zod? I am in awe of the world building and the scope of that picture. It's tough for me. I'm not a critic and it starts to get into a weird thing where one director is talking about another director. I know how hard it is to make a movie, especially one of these movies and especially a Superman movie, and there was so much I was impressed with in that movie. There were things I might have done a little differently just because of the way I view the character. Don't misinterpret that as me not liking something. It's not 'Bryan Singer's review of Man Of Steel'!" What do you think of these comments?
