Zack Snyder has revealed some more details on his upcoming Superman reboot in an interview with SFX Magazine. Zack has talked about the project a few times but has not been very keen to share to many details. In this interview he talked about Superman and how he will be different in Man of Steel vs Superman Returns saying;
“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 working 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.”
“I can’t really talk about that without being kind of specific,” says Snyder. “But I can say I think Superman needs to be physical.”
Earlier in an interview with FilmsActu Zack Snyder also revealed that this will be a bit of an origins story telling them;
“The film will focus on early days of Superman, so there will be no links with other films. This is not a remake then. Similarly, although I still can not talk about the script, I can assure you that this new Superman will not be based on a comic book in particular.”
I think that Zack Snyder is a great choice as director and it should be interesting to see where he takes the project. I really hope the rumors of casting Ursa from General Zods Army are wrong. I want to see a different villain. Heck I want to see Doomsday and Braniac or Darkseid before General Zod Returns.
