Zack Snyder On MAN OF STEEL, "What Would You Do If You Were SUPERMAN?'

"We decided to act as if no Superman film had been made - even though we love the films that have been made." --Zack Snyder



Speaking on Warner Bros.' only 'officially-greenlit' comic book movie Man of Steel, in the latest issue of Total Film Magazine, director Zack Snyder offered the following words about his project---


"We decided to act as if no Superman film had been made - even though we love the films that have been made."

"We had to say this is a Superman movie for the first time and you can't then go 'Oh, now let's steal a little music.'

"So, yes [the original score is] awesome music but Hans Zimmer is going to do something awesome."

"Superman is a big responsibility but I felt he needed to be reintroduced to a generation and I thought this was a great opportunity."

"We have great respect for the canon. I would say it is a clashing of stories and ideas. Superman is the king-daddy of all superheroes - to make him work is a big deal."

"The big challenge is if you can make people feel 'What would you do if you were Superman?' That's what we went out to do as far as we could. Superman's always been this kind of big blue boy-scout up on a throne that nobody can really touch, so we tried to make him relatable."


When asked if Man of Steel would lead to a Justice League spinoff, Snyder re-echoed his San Diego Comic Con sentiments that Superman is the "jewel of the DC crown" and that the studio needs to successful adapt that character first in order to get to the Justice League movie.
