“Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder promises ‘Superman’ fans that they won’t be in for a ‘heart attack’, when his reboot of the ‘Big Daddy’ of superheroes hits cinemas next Summer.
Speaking to The L.A Times, the “Watchmen” director said the movie will appeal to everyone – not just fans of the DC comics based on the character.
“It’s a more serious version of Superman,” he says. “It’s not like a heart attack. We took the mythology seriously. We take him as a character seriously. I believe the movie would appeal to anyone. I think that you’re going to see a Superman you’ve never seen before. We approached it as though no other films had been made. He’s the king-daddy. Honestly that’s why I wanted to do it. I’m interested in Superman because he’s the father of all superheroes. He’s this amazing ambassador for all superheroes. What was it about him that cracked the code that made pop culture embrace this other mythology? What we‘ve made as a film not only examines that but is also an amazing adventure story. It’s been an honor to work on. As a comic book fan, Superman is like the Rosetta Stone of all superheroes. I wanted to be sure the movie treated it respectfully.”
“Man of Steel”, starring Henry Cavill as Superman, is out next June.
