Dave Itzkoff talks with director Zack Snyder about his upcoming Superman film:
What drew Mr. Snyder in as he first read the “Man of Steel” script (while Mr. Nolan and his wife and producing partner, Emma Thomas, waited in his driveway) was a vision of the character that felt both classical and contemporary. On the one hand, Mr. Snyder suggested that for Clark Kent to be fully fleshed out, not every moment in his maturation needed to be depicted.
“We assume that Clark is not a virgin — I do,” he said. ” You don’t see that, but that’s the assumption.”
I love the notion of Snyder telling Christopher Nolan and his producer (also Nolan’s wife) to “wait in the car” while he goes to read a script.
