Man of Steel: Cool New Variations on a Well-Traveled Theme!

Superman - Clay Enos

Man of Steel is to movie adaptations of DC Comics characters what Iron Man and Iron Man 3 are to movie adaptations of Marvel’s superheroes. It cuts through the multiple iterations of Superman origin stories from 75 years of the character, takes the best bits, filters them through the filters of story writers Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer and then zaps them with the energy and vision of director Zack Snyder. It is best Superman movie since Superman II – and easily on a par with that film.

Zack Snyder speaks on Superman film

For those who aren’t keeping up to date with the latest Superman movie directed by Zack Snyder, let me fill you in. Two days ago director Zack Synder had spoken with SFX and he had explained what had got him interested in directing the upcoming Suoerman movie currently titled Superman-The Man Of Steel:

“My feeling about Superman is that I’ve been a fan of the character for a long time. But the question for me was always what can you do with Superman in a modern world? And I think the amazing thing that Chris and David have created, that I’m workin on now, and the reason why I was like ‘Yeah I’ll do that,’ was that they found that in him. They found the why in him. That’s the exciting part for me.”

Zack Snyder continues to be secretive about Superman: The Man Of Steel but he had this comment to say:
“I can’t really talk about that without being kind of specific. But I can say I think Superman needs to be physical”.

So far, we don’t have much on the new Superman film but what we do know is that Henry Cavill is the man of steel, the film won’t have general Zod but will have Ursa, and Hans Zimmer is not scoring the film. Keep checking back for more updates on Superman: The Man of Steel
