Man of Steel and Batman Begins will share the same tone

Man of Steel and Batman Begins will share the same tone

The teaser trailer (see below) suggested as much, David S.Goyer has revealed that his “Man of Steel” script borrowed it’s tone from the recent ‘Batman’ trilogy, of which he also had a hand in writing.

“What Christopher Nolan and I have done with Superman is try to bring the same naturalistic approach that we adopted for the Batman trilogy”, Nolan said at Rome Fiction Fest (via BadTaste). “We always had a naturalistic approach, we want our stories to be rooted in reality, like they could happen in the same world we live in. It’s not that easy with Superman, and actually this doesn’t necessarily mean we will make a dark movie. But working on this reboot we are thinking about what would happen if a story like this one actually happened. How would people react to this? What impact would the presence of Superman in the real world have? What I really like to do is write ‘genre’ stories without a cartoonish element. I did the same with Da Vinci’s Demons, and I’ll do the same with Man of Steel.”

I like the look of what I’ve seen so far – a grizzled Superman, looking more tortured than we’ve ever seen Kal-El look before; some beautiful ready-to-explore landscape; and a gritty, relatable tone and look. And I gotta say, the cast has me sold like a two-buck Blu-ray player too – Cavill, Crowe, Costner, Lane, Shannon, Adams, ‘Fish’… not too shabby a line-up there.

“Man of Steel” is out June 14, 2013.
