SFX speak to director Zack Snyder about the making of "Man of Steel", and how he feels about launching a new Superman movie amongst all the other Superhero movies coming this year.
"They truely are pure archetypes. They are literally Biblical," Snyder continued. "If you get the DC characters right they can be important, they can be about us. It's not just a romp. That's the fun, for me, of working on this movie. We got that it was important. We weren't apologising for Superman, which I feel has happened in the past. It's Superman, for God's sake. He's a thing to be celebrated."
It felt pretty incredible, actually. I'm not going to lie. You put it on and you think okay, this is day one of work - day one of being Superman, and you've got a whole crew here who are invested in making a Superman movie. I was all wrapped up in this very sticky waterproof black cape thing, so no paparazzi could get shots or anything like that. And it was roasting hot, it was over 100 degrees in Chicago. And it's that moment of going, "This is me, unveiling myself as Superman to the crew." And there was a slight aspect of nerves, but it was more about excitement. People weren't waiting to judge - everyone is sitting there rubbing their hands together with glee, going, "We finally get to see what we're creating here!" It was an incredible feeling, wearing the suit, after all the work I'd done and everyone else had done in putting the suit together. It just felt like the right moment. It felt bang on. Really exciting.
Speaking of costumes, Target.com have a New 52 Superman Costume Accessory Kit available, which appears to be the first time the New 52 has been used in a Halloween Dress-Up costume.
Thanks to Toby Ford for the lead on this info.
The interview seems to have been conducted some time ago (as the interviewer hadn't seen any images of the Superman costume. Strangely she also seems unaware of Superman's worldwide appeal).
A. I think the word is "negligee" when it comes to my outfit. It's blousy. Just kidding. It's actually pretty tight. It's a real turn-on. Everyone will want to go back home and buy one. ... The truth is [the movie's] great. I saw it last week and it blew my mind. It was a screening just for me, and I sat there tickling myself with glee.
Q. Is your Zod different from what Terrence Stamp did with his Zod in "Superman II"?
A. I love what Terrence did. He was the malevolent source of rage. Our director Zack [Snyder] asked me to make Zod less like a villain and more like a general. He's trying to protect the place where he rules. There are a lot of generals on Earth who are responsible for the killing of a great number of people. They're trying to preserve something. So, he's not bloodthirsty, raging Zod.
Molly talks about the relationship between Superman and Supergirl, Supergirl's role in the film, and her impression of Bob Goodman's script.
Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release "Superman: Brainiac," SUPERMAN: UNBOUND finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth's customs and managing Lois Lane's expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton - Brainiac - begins his descent upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets - including Supergirl's home city of Kandor - and now the all-knowing, ever-improving android has his sights fixed on Metropolis. Superman must summon all of his physical and intellectual resources to protect his city, the love of his life and his newly-arrived cousin.
Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, SUPERMAN: UNBOUND film arrives May 7, 2013 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a Blu-rayTM Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and for Digital Download.
