MAN OF STEEL Calendar Unveils New Images; Henry Cavill Says Film Is “Zack Snyder’s Baby”

Interest is running high for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Superman film Man of Steel, and understandably so.  The most recent trailer turned even the most hardened cynics (mostly with regards to director Zack Snyder) into cautious optimists, and early buzz on the film is incredibly positive.  Producer Christopher Nolan’s influence is clearly felt within the pic’s more grounded and serious take on the character, and even though Snyder is the film’s director, many have posited that Nolan had a heavy hand in making the pic.  Nolan himself has previously stated that he was responsible for shepherding the film through development but took a more hands-off approach once actual filming began, and now star Henry Cavill has spoken up to note that Man of Steel is very much Zack Snyder’s film.

Hit the jump to see what Cavill had to say, and to check out some new images from the film courtesy of a couple of Man of Steel calendars.  The film opens in 3D on June 14th.

“Chris Nolan wasn’t there during the production itself, although I’m not sure how much work was done behind the scenes. I’m sure Zack had a phone call or two with him, but this is definitely Zack’s baby. He was the man in charge, and we created the character together, as opposed to having too many outside influences.”

“It’s a collaborative process and Zack wants us to talk to him about stuff and work with him on his ideas. If you say, ‘how about I do this,’ he’ll say ‘I don’t know if I like it yet, but give it a shot.’”

While Man of Steel certainly has some hallmarks of a Christopher Nolan film (including composer Hans Zimmer), the filmmaker took great care in choosing Snyder as director, so one assumes Nolan had a fair amount of trust in Snyder to deliver the goods on his own.  Obviously as a producer Nolan has been involved somewhat in post-production, but this is very much a Zack Snyder film.  Whether that’s for better or worse is still a matter of contention, but everything we’ve seen thus far sure is promising.

Here are some new images from the film courtesy of a couple of Man of Steel calendars spotted by Superman Homepage (via SHH).  Click to enlarge.
