     January 16, 2013


Set to play Superman’s father Jor-El in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, Russell Crowe revealed some of his insight into the superhero picture in a recent interview.  Crowe confirmed that the latest Superman adaptation will indeed be taking us to the planet Krypton and also commented on the just how impressive Superman’s flying is going to be.  He also touted Snyder’s direction, calling the picture “complicated and complex.”

Also starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon and Laurence Fishburne, Man of Steel opens June 14, 2013.  Hit the jump to see what Crowe had to say.

russell-crowe-man-of-steel-set-image-3In a recent interview with Reelz for Crowe’s upcoming film Broken City, he talked about Snyder’s realistic approach to Man of Steel:

“It’s very complicated, it’s really complex. I don’t think anybody has really tried to get into the psychology of what it must be like to be Superman and what people would really respond like in a modern society if somebody like that just popped up. I think Zack Snyder was given a great deal of responsibility because, when it comes to comic book heroes and superhero films, the top of the food chain is Superman. I think the biggest indicator for me of how it’s looking is that the financier of the film has sent me gushing emails; he just loves it.”

Crowe also went on to reveal a bit about the planet Krypton and just how impressive Superman’s flight is going to be:

“I’m really looking foward to seeing it, it’s a massive undertaking. It takes you on the ground to Krypton, it takes you to a planet where the sun is four times larger than ours and you get to experience that stuff and if you’ve seen the trailers you realize that this Superman is not just floating through the air held up by a wire, this Superman is super sonic. I’m really looking forward to the way that people will respond to it.”

    “financier of the film has sent me gushing emails”
    Is he referring to Chris Nolan?

    • Jacob

      I don’t think Nolan could be consider a “financier”. He had an important role in getting the project off the ground but I don’t think he personally contributed to the financing of the picture – otherwise he’d be an executive producer instead of just “producer”.

    If Crowe said it, I believe it. He’s a monster.

    ” Hit the jump to see what Crowe had to say.”

    Doesn’t this writer know what a jump is?? There’s no jump, jumps were in newspapers, when an article continued some pages beyond where the first portion of the article ended. No jump. No. Down, boy.

    • Bonobo

      How many times must this be explained to you know-it-alls: if you are browsing the Collider main page, every story is presented with a picture and the first paragraph (or two) from the article – a paragraph always ending with “hit the jump [to read more]”. It surely makes sense there, as you need to load a new page to continue.

      Now, if you came to the article via a link from another website (rottentomatoes, for instance) then the “jump” won’t make much sense to you, as you’ve never seen the shortened version of the article – but surely Collider is right to be more concerned with their internal, on-site logic than links from outside?

    I’m not looking forward to this Superman – I’m looking forward to the new NEW one in 2018.
