Zack Snyder talks Henry Cavill as Superman in ‘Man of Steel,’ the ‘violent experience’ of flying and Krypton

There are eight pages of supercoverage of Man Of Steel in the new issue of SFX, out on Wednesday, including exclusive, all-new interviews with the Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman, Henry Cavill and director Zack Snyder (plus Superman Returns director Bryan Singer and his thoughts now on his attempt to reboot Superman).

“God, he’s so Supermanish it’s crazy! There was a telling moment – we put him in the Christopher Reeve costume, because we didn’t have a suit yet, we just had the old spandex suit. He stepped out of the trailer and no one laughed. It’s the difference between being Superman and dressing up like Superman. If I’m dressed up like Superman it’s like a Halloween costume. If you’re Henry it’s your clothes. It’s awesome. Watch the movie and you’re like ‘Holy s**t, that’s Superman.’ And it’s not weird or crazy, it’s just cool.”

Snyder discusses the “raw” nature of making Superman fly and how violent the experience would be.

“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.”

Krypton proved to be a challenge, an ancient world yet believable.

“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.”

Check out all of the coverage on Man Of Steel, be sure to pick up the latest issue of SFX.

Man Of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and Russell Crowe.

The film is set to hit theaters June 14th.
