Total Film interviewed Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill about making Man Of Steel for today’s audience. Snyder said:

“We’ve tried to make a Superman movie where he does stuff and you go, ‘Yeah, if I was Superman, that’s what I’d do.’ Even though he’s an alien, he’s more relatable, more human.”

Naming the movie “Man of Steel” instead of “Superman” was the first step towards getting the film taken seriously. Same as “The Dark Knight” was used in the title as opposed to “Batman” for the final two films in Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” Trilogy.

Cavill said:

“This is a Superman for a modern age. It’s not betraying anything that Superman is, but it is grounding everything in reality. It’s the story of this incredible being who can do incredible things, but whom we can associate with. Because he’s gone through troubling stuff and had to make tough choices…”

“Man of Steel” stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne.

Synopsis:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Man of Steel hits theatres June 14th.

    This is going to be the most amazing movie. I cant even begin to wrap my head around how they are going to make this feel real like Nolan did in Batman. I can only guess it will be a magical experience. Yeah, magical, I said it.

    the words “real” and “reality” are incredibly laughable in terms of comic book adaptations. these are marketing tools, and the strange thing is that most of the big superheroes don’t even require them. more appropriate words would be “serious”, “sober”, “staid”, “pedantic” and “didactic”, but just try getting asses in seats with those. sheep.

    I agree about this whole “realistic” comicbook business. I love superheroes, action and adventure genres but they’re hardly realistic. Really looking forward to MAN OF STEEL though!
