Here's some more:

David S. Goyer On MAN OF STEEL

Goyer talks Man of Steel, says he and Christopher Nolan will bring the same 'naturalistic approach' they used on Batman. Do you guys think that same approach will work for a Kryptonian alien who flies and shoots laser beams out of his eyes?
Mark Julian - 10/1/2012

David S. Goyer is a frequent scribe of comic book movie adaptations. There's Blade, Blade II, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises. But there's also Blade: Trinity and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance which prevents some superhero enthusiasts from giving the writer a full endorsement. Regardless, the suits at Warner Bros. apparently have strong confidence in Goyer, placing two of the studio's biggest upcoming film franchises, Godzilla and Superman in the hands of Goyer, films the studio hopes can fill a void left by the completion of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogys and the Harry Potter film series. Below, Goyer shares a brief sentiment about his approach to Man of Steel.

What Man of Steel has in common with Goyer’s previous works:

Goyer: 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. 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? 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.”

I'm sure there are strong opinions out there about how to approach Superman but we'll ultimately have to wait and see how the film turns out. The original Christopher Reeve films and the more recent Superman Returns all had a bit of kitsch and self-awareness of the genre they were representing. In the brief trailer that was released for Zack Snyder's take there was no hint of that so I'd wager we'll definitely be seeing a unique take this June.

Nothing we didn't already know / assume.

Not sure I completely agree with that. Oh sure, it's not really "news" but it does contribute to a few black helicopter conspiracy theories I've heard.

Basically I've seen ideas tossed about that Snyder is taking MOS in a direction that is kinda sorta totally foreign to what Goyer and Nolan originally intended. It's his right to do as the director of the thing. Nolan may be big shit at WB but their policy remains giving their directors a free hand in most cases. So if that means letting Snyder take MOS places outside of Goyer's intentions, hey, so be it. The utter lack of any mention of Snyder by Goyer in that quote there... well, it says a lot without saying too much of anything so far as that goes.

The other bit is that it's another reminder to me that Goyer's sensibilities regarding "genre movies" (whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean) is skewed. Superman works because there's basically nothing realistic inherent to the character. I'd argue the same is at least as true of Batman but it's definitely true of Superman. Goyer once again playing that dipshit "realistic" card tells me all I need to know about how much he doesn't understand comics as a genre. It's one thing to play with the tropes of a genre (see basically anything Alan Moore's ever done). It's quite another to repudiate them. And yes, I think that can be said of Batman Begins. And apart from Snyder's intervention, the same may also end up being true of MOS.

Possibly.

Well, the "realism" part is being focused on too much. And I'm not sure why?

Watch 'Superman The Movie' again some time, and tell me it isn't a "realistic" world? I mean, you can't find ANYTHING outside of the Krypton/Superman stuff that ISN'T realistic. From the clothes, to the politics of the time, to people's reactions. All things you would have found in NY City in 1977.

If they were to try and make SUPERMAN "realistic", I would have serious issues. But since we have already seen they are not, I don't have concerns with that word being thrown around too much.

My answer to that is that when you said "comic book" back in 1978, most people thought "Adam West". To some degree, I think comicdom will never live that down. But it was especially true at the time. The Salkinds and Donner knew they had to give STM as much credibility as possible, hence Hackman and Brando, the (for the time) very high production values, all that. And the fairly real world setting. Plus, it gave contrast to Superman. "I'm here to fight for truth, justice and the American way" during the post-Vietnam, post-Watergate, Jimmy Carter years.

I maintain though that if Donner had stuck around, he would eventually have faced the same conflict Nolan did. You either betray the realism that's been set up by bringing in costumed supervillains or else you modify those characters almost beyond recognition to force them into the style set up by STM; I don't see too much of a third choice. There are only so many times audiences are going to be eager to see Superman foil Lex's latest real estate scheme.

And see, there's the thing:

'Man Of Steel' will have TWO costumed supervillains. In film #1!

So no pig-heading yourself into making a shitty, plot-crater ridden 3rd film or anything with Snyder. The man knows how to do "fantastic".

Setting Superman in the late 70s era worked great because it reinforces how timeless the idea of Superman is, heck in the context of that time he was more needed than ever as an inspirational figure. Singer sorta had that chance with post-9/11 but portraying Superman in the manner he did really backfired and was inappropriate timing. From the looks of it Snyder's film will be not too different from 1978's approach but it will certainly have a bigger kick to it now that you can do anything with computer technology and I have confidence in Snyder putting his own unique touch to make it seem more contemporary.

More non-news to report? The so-called official MOS Facebook page had on there Sunday morning that this song here might be included in the film? Might being the key word. I guess Snyder & company are supposedly trying to figure out where to place it. If you watch this video you'll see the Clark Kent imagery repeatedly but no real Superman imagery other than the 'S' symbol on T-shirts.



If true then I suppose there will be some rock music in this film besides the official score? That will be a first won't it? At least for Superman films anyway. It was common on SMALLVILLE though. But if you're start putting rock songs in it, then one song that gets my vote is KRYPTONITE by 3 Doors Down. The video is kinda silly but the song rocks & feels like it ought to belong in MOS.

The ww non news story is interesting. And gina would make for one hell of a ww. Though I really don't want to see superman shack up with ww in films this soon. I still like to see some supes/lois/lois and clark relationships first. As for the goyer article caught it a few days ago. A nice read but I agree with you guys. Not cool not commenting on snyder influence on the film. And who knows how much of goyer script even made it into the film. Since we do know snyder and a few of his own writers did some redrafts on film. And we don't need to hear all heroes films taked about in a realistic approach/stlye. More so for a film about a flying heat vision shooting alien from another planet..

More non-news, this time from Goyer:

http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/10/13/nycc-man-of-steel-david-goyer

I really Rolling Eyes at his Chris Nolan comment. I mean wtf, the guy (and his wife) said more than once how this is Snyders movie and blablabla and now everyone, well, first Snyder (´´don't tell Chris`` - before playing CC footage) now Goyer throw out these comments as if Nolan was running the whole show or something.

But I guess I wouldn't be surprised if he and his wife did, should have taken the hint after seeing the Syncopy logo along with WB and Legendary on the teaser (and no Cruel and Unusual Films, even though Deborah Snyder is also a producer). I guess the schmucks over at WB are still busy crawling deep inside Nolans butthole now that he made them another billion.

3 months has passed since SDCC and less than 8 months to go until the movie is out and still nothing. Sleep

A couple of thoughts here. Are they really dissing Zack Snyder here? Or are they trying to play Nolan up more to 'drum up' sales? I mean, I think we all know that to duh WB Nolan = box office gold. Snyder has been successful too but to duh media it's more of a 'mixed bag'. Snyder has had some successful films but then some, not so much, even if they were actually good like WATCHMEN. So my point is that they might be trying to capitalize on Nolan's involvement more so to get those billion dollar sales going.

Another thought is Michael Shannon as Zod. It sounds like we're in for a real treat here! Goyer seemed awestruck with Shannon's performance but remember, even Amy Adams said Shannon was 'terrifying'! I can't hardly wait to see it myself! Smile

Nicee banners. As for goyer comments blah. We know nolan wsnt on hand for filming had it was more zack film then his. But goyer/wb probably want to play up nolan invovlement since tdkr was success for them. But I doubt much of nolans/goyer original script made it through all the rewrrites zack/his guys did.
