March 5, 2011: Zack Snyder Talks Superman

Superman Movie News Ed Gross from ComicBookMovie.com has posted part of his exclusive interview with director Zack Snyder online, with the complete interview appearing in issue #52 of "SciFi Now" magazine on sale soon.

    When the subject of a Superman movie comes up, there's usually two contingencies responding: fans of the character who can't hide their anticipation for the next adventure, and the detractors who proclaim the character to be too retro or passé. Director Zack Snyder seems to believe that the gap between the two can be bridged.

    "You've got to keep in mind that they look at Superman as passé because that is the way he's been approached in the movies," says Snyder. "It's not like the movies have done anything to fight that, so all I can say is that Chris [Nolan] and David [Goyer] address that in their story. I think the challenge is to make him relevant - figure out how we can make them care about him. That is the challenge."

    He believes a good part of meeting that challenge is the casting of Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel. "He just did a great job with the material that we had him try out, so it was a win-win situation," he notes. "He's definitely - without saying what our Superman is - it. He knows how to do what we needed him to do."
