The ‘Realistic’ Man of Steel : David Goyer speaks at Rome Film Fest

Writer David Goyer Spoke at the Rome Film Fest discussing their plans for Superman in the forthcoming superhero reboot Man of Steel (which IGN found via Collider), Goyer emphasized on his thoughts of the more ‘realistic approach’ that he, producer Christopher Nolan and director Zack Snyder, have decided to  take with this film.

“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.”


Goyer explained further the difficulty in producing something ‘realistic’ when you are dealing with an alien with incredible inhuman abilities rather than a human crime-fighting billionaire.


“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?”


The film stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Russell Crowe (Jor-El), Kevin Costner (Jonathan Kent), and Amy Adams (Lois Lane); and is set to be released at some time in the following year (2013).

What do you guys think? Will it crack the curse of horrible past Superman Movies? With Nolan on Board and his success with the Batman Trilogy, will his insight help? What are your thoughts on a ‘realistic’ approach?  Leave your comments below…
