Zack Snyder Will “Focus on the Early Days” in SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL

by     Posted 3 years, 287 days ago

For me, one of the most exciting things about the choice of Zack Snyder to direct Superman: Man of Steel is that I have no idea what to expect from the film now.  Luckily, he seems willing to talk about what he’ll bring to the table.  Snyder spoke generally mere hours after the announcement (“I think there’s a real opportunity here“), and revealed a bit more to Filmsactu.com in promotion of the French release of Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of GaHoole.  Roughly translated:

“The film will focus on early days of Superman, so there will be no links with other films. This is not a remake then. Similarly, although I still can not talk about the script, I can assure you that this new Superman will not be based on a comic book in particular.”

-

Let’s parse this out after the jump.

superman_alex_ross_01That phrase, “the early days,” suggests another origin story, no?  It was previously suggested that Man of Steel would not be an origin story, that it “assumes audiences already know about Lois, Clark, Jimmy and Perry.”  The two scenarios aren’t mutually exclusive: we could pick up in the first year of his hiring at the Daily Planet.  Let’s hope for that.  I don’t need to see Clark Kent run through cornfields again.  Moreover, it probably dashes the hopes of those who dream of 39-year-old Jon Hamm donning the cape.  Sorry, kids.

Likewise, if you were hoping Brandon Routh might reprise his role, he would presumably be a “link” to Superman Returns, so you’re likely also out of luck.  But that’s nothing new.  Too bad, really.  I liked him well enough at the time, and I’ve only grown fonder with Chuck and Scott Pilgrim on his resume.

Lastly, the rumored logline for the film —“Clark Kent is a journalist traveling the world trying to decide if he should, in fact, even become Superman” — brought to mind Mark Waid’s twelve-issue limited series Superman: Birthright.  It appears that comic book is not a direct source for the film, though I imagine it could still inspire the story.

To recap, here’s the rest of what we know about the film so far:

    …fail. Sorry, I am not normally one to diss a film in it’s infancy, but dammit, enough with the early days, enough with writers trying to leave their mark (you don’t have the right, leave it the way it is… we are fans of Superman. The one from the COMIC BOOKS.) and enough with writers, directors and producers who can’t handle the Man of Steel correctly. If you aren’t going to make it correctly, don’t make it. Please.

    • jonathan

      To all the idiots claiming that “Routh will not be Superman in Man Of Steel…get over it”.

      Thankfully, you all are not the director of Man of Steel, because according to his own words stated TODAY OCTOBER 17th, he IS CONSIDERING ROUTH FOR THE ROLE of SUPERMAN/Clark Kent in the new WB Nolan produced film.

        “How do I like them apples, b!tches?”

        Um, not too well, along with the majority of the movie-going audience when “Superman Returns” came out ($270M budget, $200M domestic. Ouch.)

        When a horse is predicted to be a strong finisher and then woefully underperforms, you usually don’t bet on him again. Well, smart people don’t, anyway.

      • jonathan

        you’re an idiot. $270MM – that was the production cost IF you include the failed production starts of the Brett Ratner, McGee, Kevin Smith,and Tim Burton Superman Projects.

        SR Stands on it’s own. OUCH!

      • Doug

        ok your an idiot. im just sayin

      • Coffeemarc

        If by “horse” you mean Brandon Routh, that would assume he was the problem. I believe the vast majority of viewers approved of him. Personally, i thought he was perfect and it’s a mistake not to use him again. The “problem” *may* have been the story itself, which was actually a good story, but makes Lex Luthor using Kryptonite the villian again, instead of exploring something new. Or, just maybe…..Superman himself just isn’t a viable movie franchise, period. I don’t know. Maybe being invincible isn’t interesting story telling. He fought bumbling bank robbers in the TV show, and by the time he gets a movie, he reverses the rotation of the Earth and time….actually the 40′s Max Fleischer animated shorts were pretty damn good. If none of you have seen them, check them out.

      • Dougieb804

        they will prob go wit somebody else

  • Bogie

    WOW the early years…if only someone had thought of that before maybe like ten years ago and then did an hour long drama about it.

    • David

      If your reffering to SMALLVILLE, well, as good as that show is (and yes I AM a fan of it) it is just a bastardization of the Superman mythos. Nothing at all to do with the ACTUAL continuity.

  • MrRich316

    R.I.P DC superhero feature films. This sounds like it will tank so badly they will be afraid to make anymore. I say change the name to Smallville :the Movie right now so fans of that show can get excited about it. Fans of the Superman books can jump on The Avengers film because that’s as close to a Justice League film as you are likely to see.

    • Mannygokelly

      Except its the avengers, so it’ll suck by definition due to the low quality characters and really weak source material.

  • Project 86

    yeah because making batman reboot the early days failed so bad

    • MrRich316

      Here’s another person that doesn’t get the difference between Superman and Batman. Let me break it down for you. Until Batman Begins you never got the story of Bruce Wayne before he became Batman. With Superman all the backstory of his history has been shown. In fact every time he speaks to Jor-el its just more of the same. Superman fans are tired of only seeing epic battles in video games or in animation. I get that Batman fans don’t relate to that because Batman deals with smaller fights and more psychotic enemies. I don’t think comparing “The Dark Knight” with a forced Superman film is fair. Warner Bros. is just doing this to keep the rights to Superman,they really don’t care what the fans want. Hopefully this cost them 300 million to make ( but I suspect they will spend half of the Green Lantern budget.) So what I’m saying is take your Batman comparisons and stuff them up your asylum.

      • jonathan

        To Mr.Rich316:

        Batman (1989) DID show what led Bruce to become batman – the killing of his parents in an ally after exiting an opera show.

        Superman: The Movie (1979) was the only superman movie EVER made to show Superman’s origins. Can you do the math? That’s approximately 31 years ago. Showing his origin is not a problem what so ever. SR did NOT show his origins. It simply included a 1 minute of FX shots of a planet blowing up.

        Comparing Batman Begins to a reboot of Superman is a legit comparison. So i guess what im trying to say is, stick you misplaced sense of wisdown and expertise up your fat ass.

      • MrRich316

        Wrong. that showed how Bruce became an orphan, not Batman. Batman Begins is the only film to show Bruce’s training in Martial Arts(which led to him becoming Batman). So maybe you can stop with the stupid comparisons to the Batman Movies.They did not repeat the same old tired crap that gets pushed onto Superman fans. Its get so tiring reading threads from people who don”t get the difference between Batman and Superman films. So what I’m saying is F off. You don’t know your head from your ass.

      • Mannygokelly

        She raised an important point though Rich. Superman’s origins have only been shown on screen once in the movies and that was decades ago in a movie rendered by time almost unwatchably hokey compared to current films. Then again im a major superman fan who seriously dislikes all of the Reeve superman films, particularly the acting by Reeve and Kidder so I want to see his origin told right.

        Your batman description is true, however, unlike batman superman’s origins are far more interesting. After the death of his parents before he dons the cowl, bruce is a pretty uninteresting character. Clark on the other hand is probably most interesting during the period right before he leaves smallville and right after getting to metropolis. Roughly the period from LSH/Superboy style timing until he tells Lois his identity. (not that he isnt interesting after that, but I think his most interesting points were as an unsure of himself young adult).

        Also just because it focuses on early years doesnt mean origin story. Look at Darwyn Cooke’s fabulous Superman: Kryptonite for a great example of an early, but still non-origin story. Actually come to think of it Kryptonite would make great source material for a film…at least in part. Though lack of action would happen, no one who actually is a superman fan cares one lick about “action” or “battles”. Superman is far more about the combination of humble mortal personality and quite literally the body of a God.

      • MrRich316

        I agree “early years ” doesn’t mean origin,but it doesn’t mean it has to be a boring,I have all of these incredible powers that I don’t know if I should use or not waste of time. I can’t really believe you think a Superman fan who cares about seeing “action” or “battle” scenes is less of a fan than you. You list all of these awesome Superman stories,but, You should remember it all started in a little book called Action Comics. I think the people who created Superman may have had the right idea with that.

      • agent_monday

        Why or why do we need to be spoonfed? Why do we need an origin story every time. Does everything need to be explained in every detail. Having an origin story for Wolverine only dimished the mystery of the character. In this case, the majority of people who will see this movie (potentially see it) already know these characters to some extent. Also, from what is being said, this looks like it will be a movie with a ton of talking and nothing else – by that I mean we will certainly not get Doomsday or any cool villain. Lex Luther has a place, but for goodness sake, we need a real adversery from the comics. Like someone said here, if you can’t make a comic book superman, then don’t make it at all.

      • Mannygokelly

        Because its the most interesting part of almost any superhero’s existence? Not just the origin but the “early years”. Same is true for most comic titles.

        Is it any wonder that the most famous/well respected batman books are generally “early years” stories, things like Dark Victory, Long Halloween, Year One. Dark Knight Returns was really an origin story for the old man version of batman more than anything as it was about him returning after decades of inactivity.

        Same with Superman, the most well known and respected Clark stories are early years stories. Birthright, Man of Steel, now Secret Origins (which I loved), even Superman for All Seasons was a relatively young clark.

        If you think “only was remotely interesting once in 1993″ doomsday is a better villian than Lex you are just well…you are interested in entirely opposite things in your characters from me. I actually like my characters to be well, characters, not mindless murderous animals. Even “Superman: Doomsday” recognized this where doomsday’s rampage was tied to Lexcorp activity and the entire reign of the superman aspect of the story clearly had lex as principal antagonist.

      • MrRich316

        I don’t disagree with you at all.What I’m trying to say is as a Superman fan I want the huge battles. I agree that “young” Superman would be interesting on film if we hadn’t been fed this re-write of Superboy’s history for the past decade. The time to make that film(imo) was the late 90′s. As I read your comment I get that you see both sides, but why is wanting huge epic battles with otherworldly bad guys a bad thing? I think a Lexcorp version of Lex would be awesome. Unfortunately, ever since Donner made Lex Luther a petty criminal, film makers have kept that going. If Snyder/Nolan are going in a different direction/finding an opportunity then I hope/pray they choose to re-boot Lex and Zod. I do trust in Snyder’s ability to have character development and incredible action sequences in the same movie. I don”t think that will happen though. I would bet you (and the rest of us) will get the introspective self doubting, angsty Superman with 5 or 6 special effects scenes(battles), since this movie is only happening so Warner Bros. keep the film rights to the character. I get the feeling from what I’ve read so far that this is going to be in the same category as Ang Lee’s Hulk film.On a side note it is refreshing to read that someone else can’t stand the Donner Superman films. The fx for the time were state of the art, but the story telling seems like it came straight from Lucasfilm. And I think Warners are making a huge mistake by not taking the steps toward a JL movie.(That’s just my opinion).

      • agent_monday

        I think Lex is needed in the movie, but since it’s a movie, we need a villain that is menacing in appearance and that actually makes people want to see it. Certainly Doomsday doesn’t have the complexity or layers that Lex has in terms of character, but he would make a great spectacle on the screen in actual ‘viewing’ terms. This is a 2 hour movie, and not a comic, you need something visual and exciting. Lex’s bald head (or wig) is not one of those things. Yes, we do want different things don’t we?

      • agent_monday

        Different strokes for different folks. I think they seriously fucked up wolverine when the gave him some origin stories. I won’t even mention the terrible film of the same name. We don’t always need to be told everything. Part of the mystery. Part of the allure. Part of the fun. Guess we’re all different. That’s fine.

      • agent_monday

        Also, speaking of being spoonfed, i think everyone on the planet knows the superman symbol. All we need is “Man of Steel”. Do we need to be told it’s a superman movie (again)?

      • JoJo

        To Mr.Rich316:

        AS Jonathan have pointed out the last origin story was told 31 one years ago. A new modern uodate would hurt.

        Also if would look back at the 78 moview , Donner never actually explained why Clark chooses to be Superman.Afer his father dies he just leaves home goes to antratica ,creates the fotress and His A.I pops mentors him for years and he dons the costume(does a montage of years passing ).I’m sorry but that a total lame and unrealtble chocie.

        With the premise ” Clark traveling the world and deciding to use his power to become Superman ” actually give you the mindset of Clark and viewers will be able to relate and understand him better and choice he makes.

      • Zoobster

        As neat as that may be – how about instead, give us a huge production movie of Superman being — Superman. Not fighting some human like Lex or Richard Pryor – but having a full out super-hero slugfest of epic proportions? I mean HUGE. Something epic worthy of SUPERMAN. Big big big. Not catching a falling globe, not blowing air down a sewer – an all out super-hero slug-fest with someone like Darkseid. Make it EPIC.

        Or, you can do another “your Superman is a pansy still.” remake and head back to the origins. Maybe someday, in the next 200 years we will actually see a real SUPERman movie.

      • agent_monday

        I so agree with you. Lex is a genius and all that but Superman is a ‘god’. He needs a huge battle with a villain. There are a few you could have and not just Doomsday. Like you say, …”Something epic worthy of SUPERMAN. Big big big.”

      • MrRich316

        Clark becomes Superman because that’s what both his fathers wanted. whether or not that is what Clark wants to do or not is an interesting question. I just think people don’t want to see that in a Superman movie. At least not enough people to make the movie a blockbuster.

  • Anonymous

    Wow. I dunno. It makes sense though. DC/WB is theoretically trying to build towards JLA so to truly strip away the old idea of the Infamous Alien boyscout makes sense. As long as we don’t go back to Smallville i’m good…

    • JoJo

      Actually recently the head of Geoff johns and Diane nelson has said that there aren’t plans on a JLA movie.The quote Johns “DC’s characters are “bigger than Marvel’s.” I’d rather build them up separately than “smashing them together.” For now this means Superman will exist is won movie like Nolan said before.

      I think this a good thing since Superman would be grounded by the realities and grittiness of Nolan’s Batman movie.Also i it gives the individual characters a time to shine own their merits rather and be plug for a big movie.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Superman is such a pussy in this one too and the movie hasn’t even come out yet. LOL!Why can’t anyone just bring the bloke in Blue to a proper way and have him come in kicking ass? Honestly, he is named Superman because, he is an emotional wreck, he is trying to find his way in the world, he is such a puss to use his powers? Bloody Hell? What good is that name and power if they are not being used? Find another person at the helm. This is truly disappointing. The Bryan Singer bit was laughable. Superman gets beat up by a bald idiot and kicked in by Kumar and what’s with the kid? WTF?! Now its a puss walking about the earth trying to decide whether he should and should not be? WTF? This is Superman not Shakespeare! Apparently, “The Man Of Steel” does not apply. What a disappointment.

    Armie Hammer for Superman. i haven’t seen Social Network yet(still hasn’t open here in the Philippines), but i saw him in one of the interviews here at Collider. he seems like a good guy, and he feels the part. plus i don’t want a bonafide superstar for the part. just Hammer for the lead and surround him with great actors. Leo for Lex!

Well if he is, he must very powerfull to go up against Super, I mean there is nooo way they would make Superman fight a mere mortal in an action movie, right?
      Right??

  • Uberman

    All this is, is Warner brothers attempt to hold onto the franchise! They have to, Repeat HAVE TO start a Superman movie by 2011 or they kiss the rights away!

    Judge Stephen G. Larson ruled in favor of DC Comics and Warner Bros. in a suit filed by the heirs of Jerry Siegel. The Siegel family asserted that they are owed profits on “Superman Returns” due to a “sweetheart” deal between DC and the WB, but the court disagreed with the claim.

    Yet, in what could be viewed as a silver lining for the Siegels and Shusters, the judge ruled that if production on a new “Superman” film does not begin by 2011, the families will be eligible to sue Warner Bros. for damages, as they will own the entire Superman copyright in 2013.

    “[The] entire accounting action pales in comparison to the fact that in 2013, the Siegels, along with the estate of Joe Shuster, will own the entire original copyright to Superman, and neither DC Comics nor Warner Bros. will be able to exploit any new Superman works without a license from the Siegels and Shusters,” said Marc Toberoff, who represents the Siegels in the case.

  • Nick-spencer

    Say what you want about Snyder, the man really sticks to the source material and can make a badass action sequence, so i assure the man of steel will at least throw a punch, which immediately makes it better than the last one.

  • Djuarez986

    You can never compare Batman and Superman. They are polar opposites when it comes to their core conflicts. Superman does have as many inner demons like Batman. Rather he has to cope with being the last of his race, his love with a human and the duty that his abilities and morals demand. I think if they focus more on those issues ( with an original idea, story, and script) the movie would do just as good as it did with Superman I and II.

    Personally, they should keep the story line from the 1st one (not a huge fan of Superman Returns) but i think it a good starting point. To reboot from the beginning would be too redundant and would drive fans away. They should focus on Superman’s weakness. Yes Superman has weaknesses. He was raised by humans it is not too far fetched that he would acquire some human traits.

    I wish i could meet with Zack Snyder i have tons of ideas. lol

  • deus

    brandon routh needs to return, he was very underated in superman returns. Hope snyder gives him the chance. Fingers crossed

  • Rockystallone6

    Can’t you people read? Stop accusing the movie of being a remake to the TV series, “Smallville”. Snyder said it won’t be a remake of anything. It’ll stay away from the earlier movies or TV shows, what part of that don’t you understand?

  • Bengarner2007

    • Jasongcook21

      Lex Luthor owns, if he is not in this film in some form I am not watching at all. You can’t have a superman film without Lex Luthor. One of the reasons smallville sucks and L&C went under is because Lex left the series. Lex is a must for any superman film, not saying he has to be the main villian but he is needed in some form.

      • Bengarner2007

        Maybe i am being a little to hard on Lex because of the way hes been used, I just dont think he should be supermans Number 1 Enemy in this movie alot of people were upset with the last one because all we keep getting is Lex as Supermans only enemy.

        Yeh okay bring back Lex, but let’s have some one else aswell without making it like spiderman 3.

      • Jasongcook21

        The thing is we as viewers have not seen the real lex in action on the big screen yet as all of the other actors who played lex were not good imo. Hackman was a funny version of Luthor and Spacy was just trying too hard to be like Hackman. We need an evil business man type of lex not a wanna be underground mob version of Lex. I agree with you on the fact that Lex should not be the main villian, to be honest he really never should be the main villian as he always gets away with his crimes in the end anyways so what would be the point. Nice post

      • Mr_chuck_morris

        I’m all for Lex Luthor as he is portrayed in GOOD STORIES being in the next film. He can make excitement and drama and epic battles too, just watch any of the ten zillion animated shows in which he’s almost kicked Superman’s ass somehow. But to borrow the words of another collider poster I read a long time ago, “Superman Vs. Lex Luthor’s Real Estate Scam and Baby Mama Drama” was one of the worst ideas to ever reboot a franchise in the history of franchises.

        Speaking of the animated series, I think Clancey Brown would make a FANTASTIC Luthor. He’s done the Kurgan from Highlander, the evil warden from The Shawshank Redemption… he’d be perfect.

      • MrRich316

        Clancey Brown….AWESOME! You sir are a hero. That would be so cool.

    • Rockystallone6

      Jasoncook21, makes a lot of sense here. I agree with him 100%. Remember, people, Luthor is a very important arch enemy for Superman just like the Joker was Batman’s #1 Arch Enemy. Zack wouldn’t ignore Lex Luthor. Remember, Luthor knows Superman more than anybody. Luthor knows about Superman’s past, he knows Superman’s weakeness’s like kryptonite, etc. If Snyder plans on doing a Superman storyline where he focuses on the earlier days of Superman, you can bet that Luthor will definitely be coming back. Luthor was used for almost every Superman movie except for “Superman III”. Gene Hackman as Luthor for “Supes III” wasn’t used at all.

      Stop blaming Zack and Warner Bros. that they will turn this movie into Smallville, they are not that stupid, people. Their goal with the movie is to not make it like the others.

      • MrRich316

        I don’t know that making the next Superman movie a continuation of Smallville is stupider than trying to re-write Superman’s history from scratch. If I remember correctly in Superman(1) Clark was already in the tights when he started at the Planet. Not to mention that Smallville is a ten year franchise that has kept Superman in the spotlight. The Smallville brand itself would probably be considered for a movie even if the studio didn’t have to put another one out or lose the film rights to the character. I don’t think anyone can blame Snyder. He’s just doing what he can with what he’s given.You can’t let WB off the hook though,they’ve messed this franchise up too much for too long.

    early days Superman most probably will have Lex Luthor as a villain again… don’t get me wrong, I love Lex as a villain but but older Power Suit President Luthor who uses every resource and supervillain to fight Superman… aka silver age or modern age Lex, not golden age Lex… he is boring… like silver age Joker

  • Donufro

    This is so lame. There are already basically two origin movies AND Smallville. Superman is established, folks! Time to show him kicking butt!

    Sounds like they want to do a version of Tom DeHaven’s novel “It’s Superman,” though I doubt that Hollywood would want to bring the story back to the depression-era dustbowl days of the 1930s. There was no origin story in the novel, but the story of Clark Kent coming to terms with his powers and accepting his identity made for an excellent story.

    Borrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring. I know Chris Nolan is sort of sheparding this thing along and that should help make it awesome, but there IS a storyline left dangling at the end of Superman Returns that deserves resolution. I’ve yet to understand why that movie has become so unpopular; I think it’s classic Superman, through and through. I don’t need any more “early days” of ANYBODY being explored on film. We’ve been there and we’ve done it with pretty much everybody. Can we FINALLY move Superman forward, somebody? Please? I find myself feeling so uninterested in this on every level.

  • SuperKnight

    Jon Hamm all the way for SuperMAN!

    Please NO 24 year old, blonde, soft looking Armie Hammer as Superman.

    We need to an actor who has some screen presence and charisma who give us a REAL SuperMAN onscreen.

    Not some 24 year old pretending to act tough and be a man.

    CAN WE PLEASE HAVE SOMETHING FRIKIN DIFFERENT WITH SUPERMAN?!!! WHATS WRONG WITH HIM FIGHTING ANOTHER BADDIE WHOSE NEARLY HIS EQUAL IN STRENGHT KNOCKING THE HELL OUT OF EACH OTHER?

    We don’t need another Superman. We got an honest making when Donner did his thing. And the writers back then who worked on the first SM were superb.Mario Puzo! Hello!!!!! Todays writers can barley touch their work.
    What are we going to get with the early SM remake? An effing sob story. Katherine Heigl in a bikini crying in her William Sonoma kitchen cause Soup ain’t fly her bitch ass around Metropolis? Spare me!!!
    Hollywood is so freaking desperate

    So, they’re trying to make SUPERMAN BEGINS.

      That’s dead on. Best comment since Clancy Brown for Lex Luthor.

  • KryptonRulz

    How freakin’ long must one wait for Doomsday on a film! or Darkseid! I am so freakin tired as seein Lex Luthor as the threat.

    • agent_monday

      I’ve posted a lot here but that’s simply ’cause I am angry with where the film is headed. Without a villain like Doomsday or Darkseid they can stick this movie up their collective asses. Another origin story and more of Lex. Wow. What boneheads. IF we want Smallville we can watch a slew of seasons, but some of us want the REAL superman to step up. We want 2 hours of blockbuster Superman in his suit from the start. Being the god that he is. I would rather he be exiled from earth and made to fight on a distant planet or something like that, rather than the snooze fest we will most likely get, with a script written on a piece of toilet paper.

    I was finally warming up to the new Superman film when they said it’d be an established Superman and not an origin movie. But since the announcement of Snyder helming the film, and the supposed focus on the early days of Clark deciding to become Superman I’m losing interest with each new statement (which I gather means not seeing him in costume until the end of the film). Which bothers me since Superman is my favourite character. I just don’t see the rational of making a film with that take when we’ve had Smallville doing the exact same thing for 10 seasons.

    Why can’t they just make a SuperMAN movie?

    I’m really excited for a new Superman movie, but I think it’s a horrible idea to set it during “the early days of Superman’s career.” We’ve been on that road for the past ten years. It’s called Smallville.
