If there was one common complaint about Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns” it was a lack of action, and more specifically a lack of Superman actually fighting bad guys.
Zack Snyder, the director of the upcoming reboot, tells SFX Magazine he’s taking a different approach – “I can’t really talk about that without being kind of specific. But I can say I think Superman needs to be physical.”
Snyder adds that his major, if not sole reason for taking on the project was the new approach to the character that David Goyer’s script takes – “My feeling about Superman is that I’ve been a fan of the character for a long time. But the question for me was always, ‘What can you do with Superman in a modern world?’ And I think the amazing thing that Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer have created, that I’m working on now, and the reason why I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll do that,’ was that they found that in him. They found the why in him. That’s the exciting part for me.”
