The director who has been tapped to relaunch the Superman film franchise answers questions about the character's possible movie age and whether certain villainous rumors are true.
During a brief interview with DigitalSpy, Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder took the time to address a few concerns about his next project; the latest Superman movie.
"It's a different story. I won't say there's a break from the canon or anything like that, but there is definitely an approach that makes you go, 'Okay, that's a way to get at it. David [Goyer] is very respectful of the canon and stuff like that. It has its roots in the canon and again, like I say, it has a point of view about who he is. I'm being cryptic, I know, but it's the best I can do."
When asked if his movie will track the Man of Steel's early years, which could mean adventures in either Smallville or Metropolis, Snyder replied: "I think it's early to say. I don't know."
Finally, the fan-favorite director said the rumors circulating about the theatrical return of General Zod as a main villain for the film are "just wrong." He added, "the internet has no idea what's going on."
