March 21, 2011: Zack Snyder Hints at Physical Superman

Zack Snyder participated in media interviews about his new movie "Sucker Punch", with Collider.com asking him about Superman and whether we'll see the Man of Steel punch someone in the face...

"I can't say if he punches someone in the face, because that is a spoiler. But I will say that Superman, in the film that we are making, is a very physical cat that does some physical s#@t. I don't want to say anything about the last film, but I want to see Superman kicking some ass."

ScreenRant.com also interviewed Snyder and asked him about the visual style of his Superman movie...

    I think the visual style of "Superman," though I can't say for certain as it's early, but I kind of feel like - and I did say to the studio - that what's cool for me and interesting, and odd, is that "Superman" is probably going to be the most realistic movie I've ever made. It's kind of fun that the most realistic movie I probably will make is a movie called "Superman." Which shows how crazy my other movies are. Because I guess for him to be credible... He gets more credible by the reality that you can bring to him, you know emotionally, and visually, I think.

    When asked what sort of physical preparation Henry Cavill would face for his role as Clark Kent/Superman, given the months of training the young ladies of Sucker Punch went through in preparation for that film, Snyder replied laughingly, "Henry's gonna be hitting the iron pretty hard."

    Snyder's wife, Deborah, stressed that "he's working right now." In fact, the moment they hired Henry they had him meet with Mark Twight of Gym Jones (who had trained all of the actors in 300) and Damon Caro, who does all the fight training."They've put him on a plan," she continued, "he's started in England and as of April 1st we have him full time with us for all that training."
