EW features ‘Man of Steel’ Henry Cavill cover, new photos as producer says film ‘sets tone’ for future films

This new collection of images have arrived online from ‘Man of Steel,’ scanned from the latest “Summer Movie Preview” issue of Entertainment Weekly (via /Film). Henry Cavill stars as Superman/Clark Kent will an all-star cast and 300 director Zack Snyder.

Superman Man of Steel EW cover magazineJeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, spoke to EW for this week’s cover story, saying the film sets the tone for new films.

“It’s setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward…In that, it’s definitely a first step.”

“You want to give the audience great spectacle. You want them to go to the movie, be eating their popcorn and be like, ‘Wow!’” says Man of Steel producer Charles Roven, who also worked on The Dark Knight trilogy. “But it’s just not good enough to give them the ‘Wow.’ You want them to be emotionally engaged. Because if you just have the ‘wow,’ ultimately you get bludgeoned by that and you stop caring.”

“I think you’ll see that, going forward, anything can live in this world,” Robinov said. “[Nolan’s] Batman was deliberately and smartly positioned as a stand-alone. The world they lived in was very isolated without any knowledge of any other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”

David S. Goyer, who co-wrote The Dark Knight films and the screenplay for Man of Steel says this crew doesn’t like “sequel bait.” “One of the things we dealt with on the Batman films is, Chris dislikes it when you plan something, when you say, ‘I’m going to follow this up in the next film,” Goyer tells EW. “He’s always said put everything you have into this film and then worry about the next film later. That gives the film its own integrity as opposed to being part of an overall plan. So of course the comic book fans, it’s hard not to think about [crossovers] but I, having done three Batman films and worked in that way, it’s definitely the approach we took with Man of Steel.” (Goyer recently discussed the birth of the film – check that out here)
