Filmmaker Zack Snyder says fans will be able to relate to this Superman more than past versions of the iconic DC Comics character.

"We've tried to make a Superman movie where he does stuff and you go, 'Yeah, if I was Superman, that's what I'd do.' Even though he's an alien, he's more relatable, more human."

Henry Cavill revealed that this story doesn't betray the comic books, but is modern and grounded.

"This is a Superman for a modern age. It's not betraying anything that Superman is, but it is grounding everything in reality. It's the story of this incredible being who can do incredible things, but whom we can associate with. Because he's gone through troubling stuff and had to make tough choices..."

Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013 and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, Richard Schiff. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

    @mieko-siede If it has the same team from the Dark Knight Trilogy, he'll blend well

    I'd just hate to see any CGI flying or an over abundance of CGI stunt work.

    I personally enjoyed Dawn of the Dead but 300 was truly the platform that lifted Zack Snyder's notoriety. It isn't because the movie was great but because it was ambitious and completely unexpected. I believe he's learned from his folly with Watchmen and Sucker Punch was never meant to be anything riveting. I believe it just showed Warner that he can deliver the look and feel of what a Superman film should be while maintaining the core essence of the character. Christopher Nolan was just assigned to keep him tethered to the ground while attacking such an ambitious project. Where those two minds meet in the middle will determine the overall product. It does have an epic feel. It does have that Snyder quality while expressing a Nolan-esq feel. I believe the right team was attached to make something like this truly come to life in a way it hasn't been done before. I can't imagine anyone else up to the task currently. Clearly Brian Singer wasn't up to it with his outing of Superman Returns. Albeit there was some interesting intricacies incorporated in the film it just didn't hold up to the expectations left behind following the outing of Batman Begins.

    It appears that time has been put into this project. It was carefully conceived. In June, we'll find out just how true the hype is that has been built around it. Personally, I have no fear that this will be what we all have been wishing for in a Superman movie since he first graced the silver screen with Richard Donner's classic--when we believed that a man indeed could fly.

    I think the movie will be great, but I'm still not a fan of the over stylized suit.

    @bawnian-dexeus You mean John Carter was kept close to the chest? I'll disagree, because that film had a ton of exposure and numerous interviews. If anything, I feel it was just a falsified experience in general, whereas Snyder seems to be keeping his head low and focusing on the project itself getting the spotlight, not unlike Shyamalan and After Earth. The difference is that Snyder is still in all of his fans' good graces after Sucker Punch. Lol. But I agree, too much time left to himself and who knows how the film might turn out.

    Man, I wish it was June already. I can't wait to see this film. I feel it will be one of the best movies of the year, if not the best. I can't wait to hear the Zimmer music and I can't wait to see what this film be will be like. I love the feeling it gives you in the trailers, so I'm defiantly anticipating the experience for the length of 2 hours and 35 minutes. June, get here faster please! :)

    The S shield is chrome in this movie? Classy. Thumbs up.

  11. the Narrator

    Agreed, @ejk1. A source at JoBlo reported praise for the film, but I need to know just who is reviewing this film for us. A biased party? Or an honest to god convert? I sincerely hope it is the latter.

    One thing I'll give Snyder props for is his ability to go all out on a project. He appreciates solid storytelling and high concept work, even if he can't develop it himself (as seen with Sucker Punch). The fact that he's really kept to himself throughout this film and just hammered away at the project as intimately as he has gets him props from me, whether this film critically pans or not. Plus I'm always one for doing practical and on-location shooting if at all possible.

    I'm happy that the film is getting good reviews from those that have seen it early, but I would like to know who exactly is seeing it and extolling its virtues. It would be one thing for independent voices to give positive reflections, but if they are WB/DC workers/relatives, it makes their evaluation skewed a bit.

    @superman81 Oh, i wouldn't doubt it, that will be one of the top 5 movies of 2013 !

    I cannot wait for this movie. I hope that what i see in image #2 above, is not a lense flare that will be in the movie. If it is then i hope it won't be too bothersome in the movie, like it is in other movies that have them.

    I dont know if anyone remembers when they mentioned Bradley Cooper doing a cameo as Lex Luther, God i hope thats true. Im telling you, whoever plays Lex Luther is going to pull off a Joker like heath did and i just believe Bradley can do the job, a chunk of limitless and a topping silver linings and then here..we ...go!!

    @Roberto-Mata Very weel put.

    @superman81 The viewers said the film is more than we expect, and that the story is very Human.

    @ridgl The running time means a lot, it means the film has a big story to tell: for example: The Dark Knight Rises, which is an Epic conclusion to Bruce Wayne's story as the cape crusader an its running time is of 2hr 45mins. Django Unchained, Fantastic spaghetti-western film which runs at 2hr 40mins. The only film I will tell you that ran to too long for me was The Hobbit, but still is greatly entertaining. Snyder has made his mistakes, but with this film he really put his heart on the limit, he has work on it for almost 3 years, and the film is already in the top 5 of 2013's most awaited movies. Man of Steel to tell you more is in the top 10 of the most awaited movies of all time. Snyder didn't say that he put his heart and effort on the film, you can see he it the trailers, interviews, Pictures, he shoot most of the film on location, he just used blue and Green Screens for Krypton and some scenes, he shoot the ending on location, he even tried to put a stunt double on a helicopter, to make Superman seem like he is really flying, with some green screens and camera tricks, what more do you want to know to make believe in the film as Epic.

    This movie is going to be epic. People that have viewed the film say its excellent. I have no doubt this will be a top 5 movie of 2013.

    @Roberto-Mata anyone can say they put their heart into it. That doesn't make it so. I don't think Snyder is much of a director and I am not very impressed in the cast. What was the last movie Kevin Costner was good in? Also since when does a films running time mean anything?

    2 years agoby @ridglFlag

  23. Roberto Mata

    @ridgl That's my opinion and there's no doubt the film will be Epic. Snyder has put his heart in the making of the film, Nolan producing, Cavill and Adams as the leads, plus Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, the film will not be a flop, there's no doubt about it. The film runs 2 hours 35 minutes, it is the Batman Begins for Superman.

    @Roberto-Mata i don't understand what you're saying. The film hasn't come out and you already love it. How is this story already epic? And why do you capitalize random words?
