manofsteelinflightSFX sat down and interviewed director Zack Snyder on his much anticipated film, Man of Steel. The main topics were on Henry Cavill as Superman, how Snyder approached Superman’s flight, and the appearance of Krypton.

“[…] There was a telling moment – we put him [Cavill] 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 […]”

Snyder described Superman’s flight as more violent. It isn’t effortless. There’s a constant acceleration and breaking the sound barrier. I’m particularly happy that Superman won’t be just floating around.

One of the focuses on the appearance of Krypton was having technology that was highly advanced, yet rusty and old. It would more or less symbolize the dying planet.

It’s sounding more and more like we’re getting the Superman movie that comic book fans were waiting for. Now I’m just hoping for a CEO or President Lex Luthor.

Part of the interview can be read on SFX. The rest of the interview is in their magazine that comes out next Wednesday.
