13 April 2011   Comments Off on Diane Lane Talks ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ Script

Venerable actress, Diane Lane is one of the few people cast in director Zack Snyder’s ‘Superman: Man of Steel.’ In the film, she’s to play Martha Kent, the adoptive mother of the titled hero, who’s played by Henry Cavill. Speaking with E! Online, Lane revealed that she has in fact read the script, and she even hints at the film’s structure. She said:

“I read the script under lock and key. I was locked in a room with the script and was only allowed three hours with it. I nailed it into my memory. I’m really excited. I’m really not allowed to talk much about it, I think, but it does cover the entire range of years, from infancy on.”

This definitely suggests that ‘Man of Steel’ is an origin story similar to Christopher Nolan’s ‘Batman Begins.’ With the popular television series, ‘Smallville’ — which focuses on the younger years of Clark Kent — coming to a close, it looks like Snyder’s film is going to take its place in terms of beginning the legend. How long ‘Man of Steel’ spends on the younger years of Clark obviously isn’t known. It could be a classic case of him being a baby during the opening scene and then it fast-forwards to him flying through the skies of Metropolis in his traditional garb a couple of scenes after. Either that or it could dwell on a certain time period, opening up the possibility for sequels.

In addition to Lane and Cavill, ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ features Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, and the newly announced Michael Shannon as villain, General Zod. The film currently has a tentative release date of December, 2012. [Source]

7 April 2011   Comments Off on Tarsem Singh talks about Henry casting for “Immortals”

If you didn’t know who British actor Henry Cavill was six months ago, you do now thanks to the 27-year-old actor landing the coveted Man of Steel role in Zack Snyder‘s “upcoming Superman” reboot.

And while it seems like a no-brainer move now—Cavill has the looks, chops and build; he had tested for Christopher Nolan‘s “Batman Begins” and Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns” and seemed poised to eventually score one of these plum roles—the actor’s name carried very little weight at the time and to hear the producers of the upcoming “Immortals” tell it, confidence in the actor leading their swords and sandals fantasy epic wasn’t exactly high.

“Henry tested for us and then we stayed with it,” Marc Canton, one of the producers of “Immortals,” said this past weekend at WonderCon of their lead acting choice. “There was a lot of debate about him, because we got pushed back many months in making the movie and eventually we went and we stayed the course [with Henry].”
