SFX235 Preview: Zack Snyder Talks Man Of Steel

written by Annie XXVII.IV

More magazines with Man of Steel feature coming. This time is SFX, coming out this wednesday, May 1st. Here’s the preview and what Zack Snyder has to say about Henry:

There are eight pages of supercoverage of Man Of Steel in the new issue of SFX, out next Wednesday, including exclusive, all-new interviews with the Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman, Henry Cavill and director Zack Snyder (plus Superman Returns director Bryan Singer and his thoughts now on his attempt to reboot Superman).

To convince you that you really need to buy this Mag Of Steel, here’s a taster of Zack Snyder on his leading man:

“God, he’s so Supermanish it’s crazy! There was a telling moment – we put him in the Christopher Reeve costume, because we didn’t have a suit yet, we just had the old spandex suit. He stepped out of the trailer and no one laughed. It’s the difference between being Superman and dressing up like Superman. If I’m dressed up like Superman it’s like a Halloween costume. If you’re Henry it’s your clothes. It’s awesome. Watch the movie and you’re like ‘Holy shit, that’s Superman.’ And it’s not weird or crazy, it’s just cool.”

And here’s Snyder on the approach they took when it came to making you believe a man could fly…

“It’s a more violent experience. It’s raw. It takes effort to do it, and that’s what we were really going for. It’s almost like there’s this kind of Right Stuff quality to it. He’s constantly booming around, accelerating. You think he’s going as fast as he can and then it’s like ‘Yeeaahh!’ He’s always got an extra gear he can use.”

And on recreating Krypton…

“I really wanted my Krypton to be this kind of special place that’s immersive and totally different from Earth, but not unbelievable. And ancient. I really wanted to give this ancient feeling to Krypton. I love technology that’s rusty because it’s so old. It’s so advanced, but it’s so old. That was the kind of world that I tried to create. A dying world that’s ancient and torn apart.”
