So Nolan IS going to help write Superman: The Man Of Steel
Apparently he was never supposed to be involved with Supes, Goyer and Nolan were one day talking about Batman 3 and Goyer suggested Nolan got into Supes, and it took off from there
Here is what he said about Supes:
“It’s very exciting, we have a fantastic story. And we feel we can do it right. We know the milieu, if you will, we know the genre and how to get it done right.”
“A lot of people have approached Superman in a lot of different ways. I only know the way that has worked for us, that’s what I know how to do.”
“I went to the studio with the analogy of ‘I want to cast the way they did in 1978 with Superman, where they had Brando and Glenn Ford and Ned Beatty and all these fantastic actors in even small parts, which was an exotic idea for a superhero movie at the time. It really paid off, too. As a kid watching Superman it seemed enormous and I realized later by looking at it that a lot of that was actually the casting, just having these incredibly talented people and these characterizations. And Marlon Brando is the first guy up playing Superman’s dad. It’s incredible.”
And here is what he said about Batman 3:
“[Goyer] is writing a script for me and we’ll wait to see how it turns out…he’s struggling to put it together into the epic story that you want it to be.”
“We’re approaching it in a not dissimilar way in terms of trying to find an incredible story in a way that audiences can engage with it the way they engage with contemporary action films. I think David’s approach is a very good way of doing just that.”
“I’m very excited about the end of the film, the conclusion, and what we’ve done with the characters. My brother has come up with some pretty exciting stuff. Unlike the comics, these thing don’t go on forever in film and viewing it as a story with an end is useful. Viewing it as an ending, that sets you very much on the right track about the appropriate conclusion and the essence of what tale we’re telling. And it hearkens back to that priority of trying to find the reality in these fantastic stories. That’s what we do.”
“It won’t be Mr. Freeze.”
I am SO GLAD about EVERYTHING Nolan just said!
Everytime he talks, he makes me SO HAPPY. Seriously, scroll up and read that again.
I was especially happy at the “No Mr Freeze” part.
Im also glad that hes taking care of the Superman story and that he wants good actors in the cast of the Supes film. Seriously, scroll up and read what he said again, its beautiful.
EVERY FRANCHISE NOLAN TOUCHES TURNS INTO FRIED GOLD
