It’s certainly been all go at Comic-Con, with all sorts of big superhero movie news emerging. Attendees at the San Diego event got to see the first proper footage from Zack Snyder’s new take on Superman, called Man Of Steel, with THR reporting that the scenes of Henry Cavill as the superhero were received so well they even moved one fan to tears.
Hopefully the footage will be released online soon, bu for now we just have reports that suggest this Superman is grittier and more in line with the way Chris Nolan (who’s producing Man Of Steel) has presented his Batman trilogy.
During the film’s panel, Snyder suggested this really is a complete overhaul, saying, “We had to act as if no [previous] film has been made. When we approached it, we had to say ‘this is Superman for the first time’.”
He failed to confirm is General Zod was the villain, merely stating the filmmakers “have great respect for the canon and the mythology of Superman…its a mashing of stories.
He also hedged on whether Man Of Steel would tie into a planned Justice League movie, saying “Lets say this: We know that Superman is the jewel in the DC crown. We wanted to get this house in order. And then who knows whats possible?
