Zack Snyder On The Backlash Of Directing MAN OF STEEL And How His Film Relates To WATCHMEN
In an interview with Empire, lots of fun information was revealed regarding sequel possibilities, directing Justice League and more. Now check out Zack Snyder's feedback on the backlash he received when taking on Superman, as well as how Man Of Steel relates to his previous CBM, Watchmen.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
During a nice little interview in the latest issue of Empire magazine, 300, Watchmen, and Man of Steel director Zack Snyder touched up upon many subjects that we fans have been curious about for a while. When it was first heard that he would helm the next Supes film, the reaction was pretty mixed to positive. When asked about the negativity in that feedback, Snyder said: "For me it is like, ‘Whatever.’ I don’t know what they really want, so it is impossible to really take that with anything but a grain of salt. Otherwise you would do nothing. They want the underwear! ‘Do you really?" Snyder then continued to discuss the film and how it sort of 'relates' to his last CBM, Watchmen. "I was really glad I could do it in that order. The irony of Superman is that it is not ironic. The irony of Watchmen is that the whole thing is ironic."
Man of Steel Stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Michael Shannon. The film is directed by Zack Snyder and will soar into theaters on June 14th, 2013.
