Sucker Punch

Although movie geeks are looking forward to Sucker Punch (opening Friday), all eyes are on director Zack Snyder’s next job, the ambitious reboot of the Superman franchise, Superman: Man of Steel. Co-starring relative unknown Henry Cavill, the project is being produced by Inception filmmaker Chris Nolan.

“I think the thing Henry has other than being a good looking guy..he’s a man, which I like,” said Snyder on casting Cavill for the lead role. “He also has this little teeny bit of innocence, a teeny bit of kindness to him which I feel like is important to his character.  Just enough where he’s not soft, but you could imagine him being kind. I think that’s a good quality.”

Click on the media bar and listen to Snyder discuss landing the Superman: Man of Steel gig.  The director also manages to get in a slight dig at a lesser known superhero, Thor, a character who resides in the Marvel Universe (Superman is a DC character). (Snyder’s producing partner and wife Deborah Snyder is also heard in the clip).
