We have a bit under a year until Zack Snyder‘s Superman: Man of Steel hits theaters, and while that may seem like a long ways away, the buzz that was generated from the footage that was shown at the SDCC has definitely gotten people into anticipation-mode after having seen that it’s fairly different from the other Superman flicks we’ve seen.
Henry Cavill, the new Supes, spoke with Cineplex Magazine about the film and his take on the character:
What I can say is that it’s a modernization of the character and a very realistic view of one, obviously, very fantastic individual. It’s an unreal situation, but it’s approached from a very practical viewpoint. We wanted to make the character easier to identify with. [...] It’s important to do the role justice. There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well. I gladly accept that responsibility, and it’s a great one to have because it’s a wonderful opportunity. I don’t let the pressures get to me because that’s going to hinder my performance and, therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman.
I think it’s fair to say that Cavill will do a decent job. At the very least, he’ll be good for us to look at. And knowing Snyder, there will be plenty of other eye candy (even if it’s just beautiful cinematography).
Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni and Russell Crowe will join Henry Cavill on the big screen in June 2013.
