Zack Snyder talks Man Of Steel themes

And there's yet another TV spot

What with the constant stream of new footage being revealed online, it makes a nice change to hear somebody simply talking about Man Of Steel, with Zack Snyder taking time to tell SFX a little about the theme of his new movie.

However, if that's not enough to keep you satisfied, there's also another TV spot to get your teeth into too...

“Someone said to me it’s the greatest adoption story in all of history,” explains Snyder. “I think that’s an interesting way of looking at it – maybe because I was just in the process personally of adopting my two children.”

“The people of Earth adopt him and he adopts us, as well. A lot of the messaging in this film is about family, and who makes you who you are. Clark is on this journey of self discovery, trying to figure out who he is and where he fits in.”

“In the end he comes to see what Jor-El, his Kryptonian father, has sacrificed and given for him. And he also realizes how his Earth parents made him who he is. All those themes and notions follow him throughout the whole film.”

Although this being Zack Snyder, rest assured there will be lots of super-powered badassery thrown in there as well! Now, about that TV spot...

Man Of Steel opens in the UK on 14 June 2013.

What are you hoping for from Snyder's vision of the character? Tell us, below!

      Love that last line: "you're a monster, Zod! And I'm gonna stop you!" I sometimes think the superhero movies forget their comicbook origin. The realistic aspekt of movies remove the simple dialogue from the drawn pictures. But stuff like this just reminds me of how Superman, Batman, Spider-Man etc used to tell their comicbook foes exactly what was comming their way.

      From this article: "...with ZACK Snyder taking time to tell SFX a little about the theme of his new movie." From SFX article: "With Man Of Steel a mere three weeks from release, SFX talks exclusively to DEBORAH Snyder, producer of this summer’s high-stakes reboot of the Superman legend."
