David S Goyer has revealed how he and Christopher Nolan have tried to bring the same naturalistic approach to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel as they did to the Batman trilogy. David admits that it is much more difficult given Supeman’s powers but believes that they can make it work.
Goyer explained at Rome Fiction Fest, “What Christopher Nolan and I have done with Superman is try to bring the same naturalistic approach that we adopted for the Batman trilogy. We always had a naturalistic approach, we want our stories to be rooted in reality, like they could happen in the same world we live in.”
He added, “It’s not that easy with Superman, and actually this doesn’t necessarily mean we will make a dark movie. But working on this reboot we are thinking about what would happen if a story like this one actually happened. How would people react to this? What impact would the presence of Superman in the real world have?”
David continued, “What I really like to do is write ‘genre’ stories without a cartoonish element. I did the same with Da Vinci’s Demons, and I’ll do the same with Man of Steel.” Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Superman and is set to be released in both the UK and the US on June 14, 2013.
