Deborah Snyder realizes it's an odd thing to use the term "real" in the context of Superman, but she echoes that it's been the watchword for their new movie.
"It's weird that it's Superman, a guy from outer space, that's flying," she tells us. "But I think it's going to be a definite departure from the things he's done because the idea is to make him relevant in our world today. So the way you do that is you put him in our world exactly how it is and not in a stylized world."
So viewers shouldn't watch Sucker Punch and try to predict the look and feel of Superman?
"Superman will be a documentary compared to this," said Snyder.
