Warner Bros. has unveiled three brand new behind-the-scenes featurettes and a new TV spot for director Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel, highlighting some great new footage alongside interviews with members of the cast and crew. Each of the three featurettes focuses on one of the film’s themes, so we’ve got Speed focusing on Superman’s intensely quick movements, Strength focusing on the two different approaches to Supes’ abilities from his two fathers (Russell Crowe’s Jor-El and Kevin Costner’s Pa Kent), and finally the self-explanatory Flight. Along with new footage, we see Henry Cavill, Diane Lane, Crowe, Snyder, and producers Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven talking about the film.
One of the reasons filmmakers have had problems turning Superman into a believable film character is he’s simply too awesome. He’s can fly, he’s the strongest, fastest person on the plant (most of the time), and is impervious to almost everything. Who could possibly relate to a being so super?
In Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Man of Steel, they’ve embraced those traits and brought Superman down to Earth by tackling his emotions and insecurities. This new Superman can’t be physically hurt, but is hurting deep down inside. Fortunately for the world, that still doesn’t change the fact he can fly, has super strength and super speed.
