Zack Snyder Talks Man of Steel Superman Flight “More Violent” & On Krypton

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7238:]]As we saw in the various Man of Steel trailers Superman takes to the skies with a BOOM!

Now director Zack Snyder comments on the super flight abilities of Superman, speaking with SFX Magazine.

It’s a more violent experience. It’s raw. It takes effort to do it, and that’s what we were really going for. It’s almost like there’s this kind of Right Stuff quality to it. He’s constantly booming around, accelerating. You think he’s going as fast as he can and then it’s like ‘Yeeaahh!’ He’s always got an extra gear he can use.

Snyder also talks about the look of Krypton, and as we saw in the most recent trailer, it’s ancient as well as advanced.

I really wanted my Krypton to be this kind of special place that’s immersive and totally different from Earth, but not unbelievable. And ancient. I really wanted to give this ancient feeling to Krypton. I love technology that’s rusty because it’s so old. It’s so advanced, but it’s so old. That was the kind of world that I tried to create. A dying world that’s ancient and torn apart.”

The latest issue of SFX Magazine becomes available next Wednesday.

Man of Steel opens June 14th in IMAX 3D directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Michael Shannon as Zod.
