Snyder Says Comic Fans Know “Man of Steel” Didn’t Change Superman

by  in Movie News Comment

According to director Zack Snyder, comic readers should understand that he didn’t deviate from the source material’s version of Superman for “Man of Steel.”

“People are always like, ‘You changed Superman’,” Snyder said on the Hall of Justice podcast. “If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you know the true canon, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you’re a fan of the old movies, yeah I changed him a bit. That’s the difference. I’m a bit of a comic book fan and I always default to the true canon. Not the cinematic canon that sort of, that in my opinion, plays fast and loose with the rules. And so, I feel like I tried to create a Superman that would set a tone for the world.”

You can listen to the full interview with Snyder below — his remarks about not changing Superman come at the 6-minute mark:

Snyder’s next movie, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” hits screens on March 25.
