Zack Snyder still has five months to go before he releases his next movie, Sucker Punch, but it seems all anyone wants to talk about is his follow up, Superman. The project has already seen some rough waters with reports emerging that David Goyer is "rushed & a mess" and a slew of directors turning down the project. The good news is that Superman is being produced by Christopher Nolan. Since the announcement, Snyder has been taking the Nolan route in talking about the film, speaking in grandiose, unspecific statements but Snyder talked recently to Empire about about the film and had the following to say about it.
"It’s a different story. I won’t say there’s a break from the canon or anything like that, but there is definitely an approach that makes you go, ‘Okay, that’s a way to get at it.’ David is very respectful of the canon and stuff like that. It has its roots in the canon and again, like I say, it has a point of view about who he is. I’m being cryptic, I know, but it’s the best I can do."
Earlier reports emerged that General Zod would be the remakes main Villain, but now Snyder has quashed that when asked.
"The internet has no idea whats going on"
Superman as we are aware will be in fact set in during the big fella's formative years. So interesting stuff. Superman is slated to begin production in 2011.
