Nolan Talks Man of Steel

As several people have mentioned their doubts about a more “serious” Superman film, The Playlist sat down with executive producer Christopher Nolan who discussed his thoughts on Man of Steel.

As for “Man of Steel,” which looks like it’s very much part of the Nolan-verse — i.e. a reinterpretation of the iconic Superman story only grounded in a more realistic and plausible world — the director said they won’t be as similar as you think. “Well, somewhat,” he said when asked if Superman fits into the brand of standalone superhero universe we’ve come to know from him. “But I wouldn’t want people to think we’re doing for Superman what we did for Batman.”

“It’s very much Zack’s film and I think people are going to love what he’s done,” he continued. “I think it’s really remarkable to take on that character. Superman is a completely different character than Batman. So you can’t in anyway use the same template. But David Goyer had this, I thought, brilliant way to make Superman relatable and relevant for his audience. Zack has built on that and I think it’s incredible what he’s putting together. He’s got a lot of finishing to do on that. Superman is the biggest comic book character of them all and he needs the biggest possible movie version which is what Zack’s doing. It’s really something.”
