While Christopher Nolan has already put his Batman trilogy behind him, he is once again on the hot seat, answering various superhero questions. Only this time around, the questions he is fielding concern Superman and the character’s upcoming big screen reboot, Man of Steel (where Nolan is serving as producer).
Nolan was very specific about what we can expect from the latest incarnation compared to the previous ones:
“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. 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,” he continues, “but David Goyer had this 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.”
