David S. Goyer approach on "Man of Steel"

January 28, 2013

"We're approaching Superman as if it weren't a comic book movie, as if it were real," writer David Goyer told Empire in the latest issue of the magazine. As you should already know, Goyer played a key role in helping craft Christopher Nolan's realistic take on Batman, so it perhaps should come as no surprise that he decided to bring this same aesthetic to Man of Steel (and if nothing else, that means we probably shouldn't expect another Superman Returns). "I adore the Donner films. Absolutely adore them. It just struck me that there was an idealist quality to them that may or may not work with today's audience. It just struck me that if Superman really existed in the world, first of all this story would be a story about first contact."

"Man of Steel" gets PG-13 rating

January 23, 2013

The recent surge of Man of Steel news continues with a significantly less surprising piece of information – official confirmation that the film has successfully secured a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America.

Considering that Snyder intended to position the film as a more realistic and grounded version of Superman, there wasn't ever much doubt that the film would eventually land in the same MPAA rating window as most other superhero offerings. Aside from a few notable exceptions that have tried to flirt with PG or R-rated guidelines, nearly all mainstream superhero movies directly target the PG-13 audience – striking a careful balance between adult-friendly entertainment that many parents still allow older children to attend.

Before Brian Singer's Superman Returns (starring Brandon Routh) was marked with a PG-13 rating, every single Christopher Reeve Superman movie successfully landed a PG rating – but that was before the MPAA reinforced stricter guidelines. For example, in 1984 Ghostbusters was also marked with a PG rating – in spite of several "four letter words" and an implied oral sex gag featuring Dan Aykroyd. As a result, while some might argue that even a "darker" Superman could work just fine in a PG film world, it's possible that the original series might not even qualify as PG movies if they were re-rated by today's MPAA.

Jimmy Olsen becoming Jenny Olsen in "Man of Steel"?

January 22, 2013

Now admittedly, you can't always trust what you read on the internet, but via some amateur detection skills and circumstantial evidence, it appears that Man Of Steel may see the cub reporter and junior photographer Jimmy Olsen, replaced by a Jenny Olsen.

IMDb listings for Man Of Steel see the unknown actress Rebecca Buller (left) credited as 'Jenny Olsen'.

Add to that this still from the trailer which sees The Daily Planet's editor Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) fleeing an explosion alongside a woman who looks suspiciously like Ms Buller, and we may have our answer.

The character of Jimmy Olsen was officially introduced in 1941 as an enthusiastic, red haired, bespectacled youngster who became one of Superman's closest friends.

This of course was a time when Federal law dictated only one woman was allowed to work outside the typing pool in any office at any one time. The idea of TWO women contributing more than coffee and dictation in a journalistic environment was of course, laughable.

Russell Crowe comments on "Man of Steel"

January 15, 2013

It's really complicated, it's really complex. I don't think anyone's really tried to get into the psychology of what it must be like to be Superman. And [how] people would really respond in a modern society if someone like that popped up. Zack Snyder who directed The Watchmen, who directed 300 and a few other things, he was given a great deal of responsibility. Because when it comes to comic book heroes and superhero films, at the top of the food chain is Superman. I think the biggest indicator for me as to how it's looking is that the financier of the film, a lovely fellow by the name of Thomas Tull- quite a reticent man, doesn't mince his word, he's sent me dashing e-mails, he just loves it and thinks its going to go down really well. I'm really looking forward to seeing it. It's a massive undertaking, the type of sets we worked on in that film were incredible. It takes you to the ground on Krypton. It takes you to a planet where the sun is four times larger than ours. I think people are going to love it and if you've seen the trailer, you realize that this Superman is not just floating through the air, held up by a wire. This Superman is supersonic, when he decides to fly, he doesn't muck around. I'm really looking forward to the way people respond to it.

David S. Goyer talks about writing "Man of Steel"

January 7, 2013

Superman comes flying back into theaters this June, and one of the men tasked with reinventing the classic superhero character — "Man of Steel" screenwriter David S. Goyer – said the timing couldn't be better.

"I think the movie is going to be the right movie for the times," Goyer told on Saturday as he sat down to discuss his April 12-due Starz series, "Da Vinci's Demons," at the Television Critics Association Winter Session 2013 in Pasadena, Calif.

"I'm happy that movie is going to be coming out this summer because I think it's the kind of movie that the world needs right now," the screenwriter added.

"A hero?" Access asked. "He's an unabashed hero," Goyer noted.

As a writer, Goyer was instrumental in helping create the most modern Batman (portrayed by Christian Bale), penning the story for "Batman Begins," as well as writing the stories for "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises," with director Christopher Nolan.

Michael Shannon talks about General Zod's costume

October 31, 2011

Was that fun to step out of Van Alden’s shoes and into General Zod’s for an out-and-out villainous role?
General Zod is, I think, a bit stronger than Van Alden. General Zod would not go to the speakeasy and have a shot. General Zod will stop at nothing to get the job done. General Zod doesn’t have a supervisor.

Were you a fan of the Superman comics, or Terence Stamp’s Zod in Superman II?
I don’t read the comic book, although when I got the job, they sent me a giant DC Comics book that weighs about a ton. It’s got the whole history of DC in it. It’s fascinating, actually. I looked at it with my daughter. She’s really fascinated by it.

I remember Terence Stamp doing it. He was phenomenal. I have to try and figure out a way to do something different.

So you’re not saying “Kneel before Zod” while wearing parachute pants?
[Laughs] Yeah, the flowy costumes don’t really…that’s not the style nowadays. Everything’s skintight.

Do you have a costume? A Krypton outfit?
There’s two different modes. There’s something that I have to wear a motion-capture suit for, because if I actually wore it, I wouldn’t be able to move. It’s a very big…thing. I actually don’t know what it’s going to look like, I just know that it’s very cumbersome. There’s another thing that I wear that’s an actual costume. It’s pretty simple. There’s no paisley or anything.

You don’t get to wear a flowing cape or anything like that?
I don’t know. That’s the thing about these movies. I could have an elephant head.

Ayelet Zurer as Superman's new Krypton mom

September 26, 2011

Superman is getting a new mom. Ayelet Zurer, the Israeli actress who starred in Angels & Demons and who played the wife of Avner (Eric Bana) in Munich, has been set to play the role of Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s Kryptonian mother, in Man of Steel.

Production is underway on the Warner Bros/Legendary film. That role was originally going to be played by Julia Ormond. I was unable to find out why director Zack Snyder made the last-minute change, but I’ve confirmed that Zurer will start filming this week.

Henry Cavill plays Superman, Russell Crowe plays Superman’s Kryptonian father, Jor-El, and Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon also star.

Michael Cerveris as Lex Luthor?

September 25, 2011 reports that character actor Michael Cerveris, who is best known for playing The Observer on the FOX series 'Fringe', is a possible contender for the role of Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, "Man of Steel".

According to the report, Cerveris is being considered for a cameo appearance of Luthor in the film while the character would be featured in a much larger capacity in a projected sequel.

Some validity can be given to this latest rumor since Snyder has previously used Fringe's Casting Director Michelle Allen for "Man of Steel" as well as his last film, "Sucker Punch".

Man of Steel Heading Up North

September 16, 2011

The next Superman film, 'Man of Steel' finished up shooting in the small town of Plano, Illinois not too long ago. The town was standing in for Clark Kent's (Henry Cavill) hometown of Smallville. Production has since moved to the the large city of Chicago, which is standing in for Metropolis. 

According to Canadian news provider, Global News, the production -- codenamed 'Autumn Frost' -- will be heading to the Vancouver, British Columbia area and Ucluelet, which is on the west coast of Vancouver Island. At one point, the town will stand in for an "Alaskan fishing village." Excerpts from the letter written by the locations manager for production company Third Act Productions Inc., Rino Pace to the Ucluelet council reads:

Autumn Frost will film in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island from early September through to the end of January 2012. We have been preparing the film since early spring, which includes building 'sets' in the various 'stages' in and around the Vancouver area...

That's a long time to be filming compared to the stays that the production has had in Illinois. If it's a just a bunch of stages and places like that, don't expect set photos to be pouring out like they have been.

Michael Shannon Confirms Man of Steel Mo-Cap

September 6, 2011

Two weeks ago, an actor who appeared to be Michael Shannon was spotted on the set of Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel in a full motion-capture suit. Since it's known that Shannon will playing General Zod, the outfit sparked much online discussion about the final look of the character, especially given the fact that he was photographed next to the practical costume of fellow Kryptonian Faora (Antje Traue). Now, expect the debate to heat up even further as Shannon confirms to Moviefone that it was, indeed, him in the suit.

"[I]t's one of the most humiliating garments that exists in the known universe," Shannon explains, "...It's very tight. It has a variety of different colors and shapes on it and it makes you feel like you're the court jester."

Though he admits that he got used to the costume (which will be replaced in post-production by an currently unknown design), Shannon says he wasn't a fan of having to don the tights.

"It's funny because when I met with Zack we were talking about it before it started and he mentioned that there was going to be a lot of CGI... I said, 'Just don't make me wear one of those silly suits.' He said, 'Oh, yeah, don't worry, I know exactly what you're talking about.' I was like, 'It's going to be really hard for me to be intimidating if I have to wear one of those silly suits.' He said, 'I totally understand.' Then I showed up and he's like, 'Dude, I swear to God, it's going to be so badass when we're done. Trust me, it's going to be wicked.'"

Set Photos Reveal Character's Deaths

August 26, 2011

The unofficial Facebook page for the film has gotten their hands on a couple of photos from the set. They're of two gravestones: one that reads "Harry Kent Jr." and the other "Jonathan Kent." The latter is Clark Kent's (Henry Cavill) adoptive father, who is played by Kevin Costner. There is also a shot of some damage done to the Kent family home, possibly from the tornado that hits Smallville.

Details Regarding Shooting In Illinois

August 11, 2011

A source involved filming, has discussed scenes being shot for Man of Steel. The source, whose name and role is being kept confidential, is involved with how various scenes are technically executed. With this information being revealed, part of the story line comes into clearer focus.

While filming has been going on this week at Sugar Grove and is moving back the Kent Farm and Sandwich, IL at Valley West Community Hospital, preparation is well underway some big action scenes being shot later this month. Valley West Community Hospital already issued an email alert concerning shooting at the hospital, saying windows would be blacked out, but no major explosions would be occurring. Those effects will be added in. The source confirms "that is being worked on tonight. Nothing will be big there because they can't actually blow up the hospital. So they're just going to be using some controlled and smaller pyro's and then digitally altering it to make it look like a big explosion took place."

In Plano, the 7-Eleven set that has been constructed is now being wired with explosives, says the source "wiring of explosives starts [Today] at the 7-Eleven and it will be blown up in shooting". This occurs during scenes to be filmed in Plano when the military arrives in Smallville to take on Zod and Faora with Superman caught in the middle of the fight.

The source continues by talking about a scene in which Superman learns of specific powers. "Superman learns of certain powers that he has where a glass starts shaking and then breaks. Snyder was very specific and provided a lot of detail about how this was to be done. It will all be controlled with pyrotechnics with certain holes drilled at certain depths and multiple blasts to make the total effect."

Laurence Fishburne Cast As Perry White

August 5, 2011

Signalling that their Superman movie will indeed buck the trend, Zack Snyder and company have cast “The Matrix’s” Morpheus to play the new Perry White in their upcoming “Man of Steel”.

Like J.J. Jonah to Spider-Man, Perry White is the publisher of The Daily Planet, the newspaper where Clark Kent (Superman) and Lois Lane works. He’s also known for his trademark phrase, “Great Caesar’s Ghost!” Cause, you know, he’s an old fart and whatnot, and apparently old farts say stuff like that. Or something.

It’s a coup to be sure, though perhaps a bit of an overreach for such a small role. Perry White will probably never leave The Daily Planet building, and to cast someone of Fishburne’s stature feels a tad like over compensation. Add to this Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner as Superman’s dual dads, and “Man of Steel” certainly doesn’t lack for big movie star names. You have to wonder, though, why the need to cast so many well-known names in such small roles?

Man of Steel script is fantastic

July 26, 2011

Henry Cavill has described the script for Superman: Man of Steel as "fantastic".

The former Tudors star said that he is thrilled to be a part of the superhero reboot, praising the film's screenplay in particular.

"It's fantastic. That's all I can [say]…" Cavill told Access Hollywood. "It's one of the best scripts I've ever read."

The actor went on to reveal that production on the movie has begun in Chicago.

"It's going really well," Cavill said of filming.

The 28-year-old can next be seen playing the Greek warrior Theseus in Immortals opposite Kellan Lutz, Mickey Rourke and Freida Pinto.

Cavill also opened up about what attracts him to such heroic roles.

"It's just everything you dream of as a little boy to be that hero," he said. "I mean, I'm sure there's some little boys that dream of being villains, but it's fun to be the hero because you get to win! Yeah, just that! It's escapism, it's fun, it's fantasy, it's story telling."

Man of Steel movie delayed

July 22, 2011

The Playlist is reporting that Man Of Steel, the upcoming Superman reboot from director Zack Snyder, has suffered a delay. The film is currently in pre-production and the release date has been moved from December 2012 to June 2013. To be more specific, June 14, 2013.

It’s probably a smart move as well to delay the film. December 2012 is packed with high profile films like The Lone RangerQuentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, and of course The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The delay is unfortunate but if it means that they’ll have more time to work on the film, then I’m all for it. Trust me, no one wants to see this film succeed more than I do. I love Zack Snyder. He hasn’t made one bad film yet. Ok, fine, Watchmen wasn’t amazing but it wasn’t bad. And yes, I did like Sucker Punch, I liked it a lot actually.

That being said, most of the world hates Snyder right now. If Watchmen didn’t fuel the hatred then I’m sure Sucker Punch did. The guy is skating on thin ice and has almost too much to prove with Man Of Steel. If it’s a flop, his career will likely take a turn for the worst. He has a lot riding on the film and if the delay means we’ll get a better final product, then sure, go ahead and delay it. Fine by me.

Warner Bros. also has a lot riding on this one. They need another franchise, especially since Harry Potter is now gone and the caped crusader is making his departure next year. Green Lantern wasn’t exactly what they had hoped for and they need another huge franchise that is going to bring in the big bucks. Man Of Steel could be that film, or it could be a total flop. Only time will tell.
