David S. Goyer gives details on approach for 'Man of Steel'

By Matthew Dougherty,

Next summer, Superman will be back on the big screen and with the minds behind The Dark Knight trilogy sticking around for this new reboot, he will likely be very different than in any other adaptation before.

Before last summer’s The Dark Knight Rises was even completed, David S. Goyer, who co-wrote all those Batman films, pitched an idea to director Christopher Nolan on how to do something similar with Superman.

“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?” Goyer said at the Rome Fiction Fest, reports Collider.

IGN notes that the “real-world” take on Superman may not work as well as it did for Batman. But we will just have to wait and see.

Zach Snyder will direct Man of Steel with Henry Cavill starring as the superhero. Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane will all appear in the film.

You can see the film in theaters June 14, 2013.
