Scott Snyder Shares His Thoughts On The MAN OF STEEL Trailer And This Year's CBM's

The critically acclaimed writer of American Vampire, Batman and Swamp Thing shares his thoughts here on the recently released Man of Steel trailer and reveals what he made of The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises.

In a recent interview with IGN Comics, Scott Snyder (who will next year team up with artist Jim Lee (Justice League) on a new Superman comic book series entitled Man of Steel) has shared his thoughts on the Man of Steel trailer which blew us all away when it was released last week. As you can see from his comments below, he enjoyed The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises just as much as the rest of us, but his take on Superman will be far more similar to both the latter movie AND Zack Snyder's upcoming grounded take on the iconic DC character.

"I’m really excited for it. It’s hard because it’s just what I was hoping in that it doesn’t reveal too much at all, so I watch it and it just makes me eager to see it. I definitely was excited when you saw him about to fly and you saw his fist down and the ice started to shake and you got the sense that he really existed in the real world. You know what I mean? You can see something happening and it almost looks like a real-time molecular reaction there. It’s so interesting; it’s really what it’d look like and I never thought about that. I love Superman in the real world in a big way."

"As much as I adore movies and stories that take place clearly in a world that’s more comic booky-y – I loved The Avengers (don’t kill me, DC) and Spider-Man – but at the same time I really loved the Dark Knight movies because they are so grounded in a realistic world. That definitely works for Batman, but I also think that’s a really interesting way to approach Superman and I will say that our Superman is deeply rooted in that idea. It’s not going to be the book where you see Superman fighting a lot of supervillains and a lot of crazy colorful space aliens and stuff like that."
