Director Zack Snyder's wife and producer partner Deborah Snyder, one of the producers of Man of Steelstarring Henry Cavill & Amy Adamstalked to SFX about the movie, Lois Lane, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, the costume choices, and more.
Here's part of the article...
With Man Of Steel a mere three weeks from release, SFX talks exclusively to Deborah Snyder, producer of this summer’s high-stakes reboot of the Superman legend.
With a summer blockbuster everyone focuses on the visuals and the spectacle, but what’s the heart of this story, emotionally?
Someone said to me it’s the greatest adoption story in all of history. I think that’s an interesting way of looking at it – maybe because I was just in the process personally of adopting my two children. The people of Earth adopt him and he adopts us, as well. A lot of the messaging in this film is about family, and who makes you who you are. Clark is on this journey of self discovery, trying to figure out who he is and where he fits in, and in the end he comes to see what Jor-El, his Kryptonian father, has sacrificed and given for him. And he also realises how his Earth parents made him who he is. All those themes and notions follow him throughout the whole film. That’s something that resonated with me, even from when we started reading the script and started talking about doing this film.
What about the Lois and Clark relationship? How does that relate to previous incarnations of Superman we’ve seen?
I think that our Lois is a little feistier and stronger. I think both characters are more realistic to us, to society now. Clark to me was always too good to really relate to. He was a little too much this perfect boy scout, and although Lois was feisty and strong she was still always the one being rescued. Not to say that she doesn’t get rescued in our movie, but she rescues him right back, in so many other ways, emotionally. And in our film, in our last setpiece, she has a very strong position. There’s something that she needs to accomplish in this plan in order for it to work. I like seeing that she’s a really strong female character, and very proactive.
So she isn’t just falling off skyscrapers?
No! (laughs) And her apartment is a little more realistic to her job, I think. With the Richard Donner films I was always like “Wow, that apartment – how could she afford that? It’s amazing!”
What were you looking for in the person that would bring your Lois to the screen?
Amy [Adams] is an amazing actor. With all the casting we tried to get the best actors we could, because it just gives it credibility. In so many ways we didn’t look at it as a genre superhero movie – we looked at it as a great story that we were telling, and we wanted to get the best people. Amy embodied so much of Lois – she’s feisty herself and she’s so versatile, and she was really just perfect for the role.
