Christopher Nolan Talks Man of Steel and Justice League Role


Christopher Nolan is a busy man. After finishing up his Dark Knight trilogy for Warner Bros., he stepped in to oversee and produce the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel, which he says won't exactly be like his Batman series.

"Well, somewhat," Nolan told The Playlist. "But I wouldn't want people to think we're doing for Superman what we did for Batman.

"It's very much Zack's film and I think people are going to love what he's done. I think it's really remarkable to take on that character. Superman is a completely different character than Batman. So you can't in anyway use the same template. But David Goyer had this, I thought, brilliant way to make Superman relatable and relevant for his audience. Zack has built on that and I think it's incredible what he's putting together. He's got a lot of finishing to do on that. Superman is the biggest comic book character of them all and he needs the biggest possible movie version which is what Zack's doing. It's really something."


Ever since the announcement of the Justice League film, Nolan's involvement has been long rumored. When asked if he could take on a Joss Whedon-like role for WB, he laughed and gave the non-answer of "Well, as I've said, and I'll say definitively again, I am done with the Batman films, the trilogy is completed. It ended in the manner we had envisioned."

Even though we won't get to see Man of Steel until next summer, and Justice League for a few more years, the folks involved are very proud of what they've done even if they won't say what it is.

"It afforded me a wonderful opportunity to put a specific thing in the minds of 14 year-old boys," said Russell Crowe to MTV about playing Superman's father, Jor-El. "And that is that the bravest thing you can do, the most important thing you can ever do, is love."

Superman toys unfinished commercials, might contain some spoilers.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Looks liek Zod might have a big robot army? If true, should be a good action sequences for Snyder to play with.

Thanks for reminding me that children's toy commercials suck.

Oh come on, it doesn't remind you of being a little kid and watching old school Spider-Man, X-Men, Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Savage Dragon, Power Rangers, etc... ?

Commercial is still terrible but damn those were some great, worry-free days.

For the costume alone I will not see this movie in a theatre and only maybe on DVD. I really hate this costume, did I mention this before? It looks like it was cobbled out of old reflective oil rig worker outfits.

I think the costume looks great.

I really dislike it, but it won't prevent me from seeing the film.

No - certain names transcend languages unless they're very literally translated (usually very poorly). For example, in Spanish

Superman = Superman
Batman = Batman

however

Spider-Man = El Hombre Araña

?

+1

I just hope there isn't an overload of "slow-mo, sped up, slow-mo" footage.

Man of Steel Goes Viral with a Kryptonian Countdown

The viral campaign for next summer's Man of Steel appears to have officially launched with The DSRW Project, an ARG that purports to research deep space radio waves.

All day, fans have been hard at work decoding incoming signals that bear more than a passing resemblance to Kryptonian characters, ultimately revealing a secret site that appears to offer some form of extraterrestrial countdown. What it's counting down to, however, remains to be seen.

Last year, Warner Bros. debuted a similarly SETI-inspired viral site for Green Lantern, another DC Comics property.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Russell Crowe, Harry Lennix and Christopher Meloni. It arrives in theaters everywhere June 14, 2013.
