Zack Snyder Talks MAN OF STEEL; Confirms Film Won’t Use John Williams’ Music | Collider
Well, that's the trick ain't it?Quote:
At Comic-Con, the closest Snyder came to saying something of substance about the film was when he explained that they wanted to get away from Superman being “a big blue boy scout” and instead wanted to see him beat the snot out of people. Speaking with Total Film magazine (via The Geek Files and CBM), Snyder elaborate on this point:
“The big challenge is if you can make people feel ‘What would you do if you were Superman?’ That’s what we went out to do as far as we could. Superman’s always been this kind of big blue boy-scout up on a throne that nobody can really touch, so we tried to make him relatable.”
Speaking more about his approach to the character, Snyder said they wanted to start from scratch:
“We decided to act as if no Superman film had been made – even though we love the films that have been made… Superman is a big responsibility but I felt he needed to be reintroduced to a generation and I thought this was a great opportunity.”

Nice editorial on what the movie should be like.

Not a ton of spoilers in these ads...EXCEPT
for the appearance of what seems to be a red-suited Superman @ the end of the second. Not sure what that signifies, but it's interesting.
