Zack Snyder Taking “Batman Begins”-Style Approach to Superman Reboot

Mar 18, 2011

  • Now that Ma and Pa Kent have been cast in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot starring Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, it’s time to turn our attention to villains and story development. Diane Lane and Kevin Costner will play Martha and Jonathan Kent, with Costner locking in on the project yesterday. Today, we hear that Snyder is taking a Christopher Nolan-style approach to the franchise by giving us a pre-supposed beginning to Superman’s heroics. Says Snyder, “If you look at Batman Begins… there’s the canon that we know about and respect but on the other hand there’s this approach that pre-supposes that there haven’t been any other movies.” So with Snyder’s fresh start approach in mind, might we be going all the way back to the very first batch of villains from the Action Comics days? Or something more modern? Who do you think should be the Superman reboot villain and who should play him/her? --Derrick Deane
