'Man of Steel' To Take Realistic Approach

A more grounded "Man of Steel" superman movie in the vein of Batman Begins with Nolan as producer?



Source: firstshowing.net

October 2, 2012




   Christopher Nolan was the man behind the gritty Batman trilogy that has split fans, but raked in the box office dollars.  When he was announced as producer for Man of Steel, fans speculated that he may push Superman toward a darker, grittier path.  David Goyer recently spoke about the new movie and the 'naturalistic', if not necessarily darker, approach they are taking.

What Christopher Nolan and I have done with Superman is trying to bring the same naturalistic approach that we used adopted for the Batman trilogy. 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 have the presence of Superman in the real world? What I really like to do is writing "genre" stories without a cartoonish element.

   This reporter feels both concern and curiosity at how they plan to make a story about an industructable flying alien that shoots laser beams out of his eyes natural or realistic.  And does this add more confirmation to the story that if DC does a Justice League movie, it will stand apart from the individual hero movies being produced?  I can't say I'm wholly against a more realistic take on superheroes, but by his very nature Superman should only be so "grounded".

Translation: Superman is going to Wangst for 2 hours, because these guys making this movie are just another bunch of people who think "EVERY character HAS to be like Batman!!"

Well we all know DC Comics really revolves around Batman, Herald. The sun rises and sets on him in the DC Universe.

Hopefully it will be better than the last Superman movie which was a snorefest for me.

I'm not sure it possibly could be but I have a feeling this one is going to be even more boring that Superman Returns.

Realistic approach to Superman never work that well. He's entire premise is so fanatastic and out there it just doesn't fit him.

He's not Batman DC and that's okay. I'd rather they used All Star Superman or John Byrne as examples of ways to do Superman not the Nolan Batman movies.
