‘Man Of Steel’ Won’t Copy Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy, Promises ‘The Dark Knight’ Director

Christopher Nolan has been discussing the differences between the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, and his critically acclaimed Dark Knight saga.

Nolan is producing Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and also created the movie’s story alongside David S. Goyer, who later went on to write the screenplay.

Talking to the British magazine, The Playlist, Nolan stated, “I wouldn’t want people to think we’re doing for Superman what we did for Batman. It’s very much Zack’s film and I think people are going to love what he’s done.”

Nolan also added, “Superman is a completely different character than Batman. So you can’t in anyway use the same template, but David Goyer had this brilliant way to make Superman relatable and relevant for his audience. Zack has built on that and I think it’s incredible what he’s putting together.”

Man of Steel promises to be one of the biggest movies of the next 12 months, but Nolan also revealed that the production team are still hard at work on the epic, noting, “[Zack]’s got a lot of finishing to do … Superman is the biggest comic book character of them all and he needs the biggest possible movie version which is what Zack’s doing. It’s really something.”

Snyder’s movie is filled with great acting talent and stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent, and Michael Shannon as General Zod. Man of Steel will be released on June 14, 2013.
