Will Superman Punch Someone in the Face? Zack Snyder talks SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL

Zack Snyder SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL Sucker Punch slice

Just an hour ago I got to interview director Zack Snyder for his new movie Sucker Punch.  With the film getting released next weekend, you can expect the full interview online very soon.  However, towards the end of our conversation, I asked him about Superman: Man of Steel and wanted to get that online today.  Since I knew I’d only get one question about his next project, I tried to make it a good one.  I asked if Superman would punch someone in the face!

While there are moments in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns that I liked, for the most part, I consider the film a missed opportunity.  One of the reasons is that Superman never got physical.  We only saw him moping around and every once in awhile, got some cool action (the plane rescue was incredible).  I figure if Superman gets to punch someone in the face in Man of Steel…that means we’re going to get an awesome villain.  So what did Snyder tell me?  Hit the jump to watch.  I also asked him where they’re going to film and he did confirm Vancouver is one of the locations.

As most of you already know, Henry Cavill will play Clark Kent/Superman. Kevin Costner will play Jonathan Kent, Clark Kent’s adopted father.  Diane Lane has signed on to play Martha Kent.  Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder are the producers of the film.  The screenplay is being written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan.

After watching what Snyder says…tell me you’re not excited!
