Still Plenty Of Secrets In MAN OF STEEL Says Screenwriter
Arguably the most anticipated film of the summer, in Man of Steel director Zack Snyder tries to return the grandaddy of all superheroes to the forefront of comic book movie discussion. Do you think he'll succeed?
A few more interesting tidbits and revelations from the latest issue of Total Film magazine which features interviews with Man of Steel's Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill and David Goyer.
Zack Snyder on his interpretation of a character that many feel has become outdated in the current society.
"We've tried to make a Superman movie where he does stuff and you go, 'Yeah, if I was Superman, that's what I'd do.' Even though he's an alien, he's more relatable, more human."
Screenwriter David Goyer says there's [thankfully] a lot in the film that's still a secret.
"It's something Chris [Nolan] tried hard to do with the Batman films. I'm genuinely pleased with how much secrecy we've been able to maintain. There's so much of the movie that people don't know, that hadn't been touched upon. The trailer's just the tiniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg."
Goyer goes on to assure that this film is not a Christopher Nolan Batman film.
"Relatable and realistic doesn't necessarily mean dark. I think it would be inappropriate for us to approach a Superman film as if we were doing The Dark Knight. The Batman films are a lot more nihilistic; Superman has always been a story about hope."
As for Superman himself, Henry Cavill says the film is a nice blend of action and substance.
"Sometimes you want to watch a whiz-bang movie. Other times you want something introspective, that really provokes something inside. This hits a wonderful medium between the two."
There's tons more on Man of Steel in the latest issue of Total Film out now, which is out now on newstands. Man of Steel opens June 14th in the U.S. Is it your most anticipated film of the summer?
