Christopher Nolan Says SUPERMAN Is More Difficult To Bring To The Big Screen Than BATMAN

The Dark Knight Trilogy director, Christopher Nolan, is working with Warner Brothers and DC Comics again by producing Zack Snyder's Superman tale Man Of Steel, which he says is more of a task to develop than what Batman was.

Man Of Steel is scheduled to hit theaters next year on June 14th with Zack Snyder handling directing duties and Christopher Nolan Producing. Nolan is no stranger to the super hero genera having tackled Batman in his famed Dark Knight Trilogy. While talking with The Hollywood Reporter, Nolan said that Superman is completely different to bring to life on the big screen than Batman, saying that its a bit more challenging. "In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of the Dark Knight. He (Snyder) has a lot of finishing to do on the movie, it has a very long post-production schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies," Nolan said. He went on to say that he feels a little guilty because he has nothing to do with the movie at this point, and "I’m just amazed by what he is doing. It’s not something I would know how to do." Nolan said that all he can really do at this point is be as supportive as he can.

He also went on to sing his praises for Snyder, who is in deep post-production for the movie. "Zack was the perfect man to take this on; he is unbelievably skilled at creating a coherent, cohesive world. Whether it’s a very stylized world, like 300, or something that’s more challenging, more varied, like he did with Watchmen,” he said. Nolan also reiterated that he has no plans to be involved with Warner Brother's Justice League plans, saying that he wasn't to direct again sometime soon, because he will get bored if he doesn't.

Man Of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne with Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, and will be released on June 14, 2013.
