Superman: Man of Steel is Snyder’s next project, but the film will not be tying in with any of the previous movies, not even the most recent Superman Returns.
“Literally, the one thing that everyone can start to think about is that we’re making a movie that finally roes with the approach that there’s been no the superman movies,” he said, talking to the LA Times.
“If you look at Batman Begins, there’s that structure, 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.”
“In every aspect of design and of story, the whole thing is very much from that perspective of respect the canon but don’t be a slave to the movies.”
This could finally be the modern twist that Superman badly needs, bringing the Man of Steel into the 21st Century.
